Stars honor 9/11 ... while 'Today' talks Kardashians

On the 11th anniversary of September 11, 2001, a number of more famous names joined in the outpouring of tributes for those lost in the attacks that changed all of our lives, "star" or not.

But while singer Michelle Williams, Josh Duhamel, Ellen DeGeneres, Michael Phelps and "Modern Family's" Sarah Hyland shared that they would #neverforget, NBC's "Today" show has been accused of foregoing a moment of silence in order to talk to Kardashian family ringleader Kris Jenner.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, NBC was the sole "big three" broadcast network with a morning show that didn't air a moment of silence in memory of 9/11.

While ABC's "Good Morning America" and CBS' "CBS This Morning" cut into their programming to show live coverage of Manhattan's 9/11 memorial, THR reports, NBC's "Today" aired an interview with Kris Jenner about "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and her breast implants.

However, an NBC rep said in a statement to Politico that the network's morning program "dedicated a considerable amount of time to September 11th coverage this morning throughout the entire show."

In a way, Kris acknowledged the anniversary of 9/11 on her Twitter account, as she retweeted a user who informed her:

Meanwhile, Kris's daughter Kim posted to her own account a link to a blog item that recalls where she was when the tragedy happened.

"We all remember where we were when we heard the news," Kim tweeted with the link."#Remember911."

And she wasn't the only one:

    From now on I am not watching any show, or reading any article, that has a Kardashian in it. Over exposed drivel is dead and they can go the way of Paris Hilton – back into obscurity. So from now on write what you want, but you won't have me viewing your advertisements. I urge others to follow suit and raise the collective IQ of the planet.

    RYAN, ROMNEY & THE GOP REFUSE TO HELP THE 9/11 RESCUERS

    GOPers Who Voted Against 9/11 First Responders' Bill Say 'Never Again'
    Zadroga Act Opponents, Including Paul Ryan, Observe September 11 Anniversary

    WASHINGTON - The nation's leading Republicans marked the 11th anniversary of 9/11 with the words "never forget" on their lips - most of those using the occasion to promote legislation - but nearly all of them opposed the bill passed two years ago to help the first responders who suffered health problems in the wake of the attacks.

    Prominent among them was vice presidential nominee, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who voted twice against the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, and opposed the final passage of the bill. - http://tinyurl.com/cnhcklg

    Such a shame that NBC believes that the publicity hungry Jenner/Kardashian family deserves more respect than the moment that changed America forever. Really? The shallow, superficial discussion about breast implants couldn't wait for "a moment of silence"? This family is a cancer on America.
