NBC defends not broadcasting 9/11 tribute
NBC has defended its decision to interview a reality TV star instead of observing a moment of silence marking the 11th anniversary of 9/11.
While other networks aired live silent footage of memorial events, NBC’s Today show aired a segment with Kris Jenner from Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
An NBC spokeswoman said Tuesday’s show had “dedicated a considerable amount of time to September 11th coverage”.
The network is already under fire for its coverage of the London 2012 Games.
