‘Today’ Skips 9/11 Moment of Silence

Who in the world thought this was a good idea? On Tuesday, NBC’s Today show did not cut to the moment of silence at 8:46 a.m. to honor the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, instead opting to continue an interview with Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner. ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning both cut to the moment of silence at Ground Zero in New York, as did all the cable networks. In New York, WNBC broke into the interview to carry locally produced special coverage.
