Bee-otched For: not having their priorities straight... AGAIN
Well, well, well, what do you expect from the same network that decided not to air a tribute to the 7/7 disaster during the opening ceremonies to the Summer Olympics?
Yesterday marked the 11th anniversary of the horrific events that took the lives of nearly 3,000 people. It was a day that will always lives in our hearts and made us think about how important freedom is.
It is now a tradition at 8:46 a.m. - the time the first plane hit the first World Trade Tower - on September 11th, to observe a moment of silence to honor those lost on that painful day. Most of the major networks, including CBS, ABC, CNN, Fox News Channel and a few others honored that day with silence, but NBC had other plans.
At 8:46 a.m. yesterday, NBC was instead airing an interview between Samantha Guthrie and Kris Jenner about her boobs, and yes, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
That's right! Instead of honoring 7/7, NBC thinks that Tinker Bell himself, Ryan Seacrest talking to Michael Phelps was more important. Now, it's spitting on al-Quida's victims again but airing an unimportant interview about the most-useless family in American history.
Kids, this is why NBC's Today Show has become the most-unwatchable morning news program on TV. They can Ann Curry for no true reason and worst of all, one of their correspondents is the daughter of the worst president in modern history. With Jenna BusHitler-Whore-gar's bullshit and their absolute ignorance towards the victims of 9/11 and 7/7, NBC's news division has done a wonderful job spitting in the faces of those whose lives were affected on those days. But then again, let's not forget who still owns part of NBC: General Electric, who manufactured a lot of the weapons used in the wars that followed 9/11.
Although I'll admit that NBC Nightly News is one of the lesser of all the news evils out there, I'm quickly turning more and more into an ABC guy, especially for their weekend edition (here in Grand Rapids, WOOD-TV 8 doesn't air the weekend editions of Nightly News in lieu of a 60-minute newscast on Sunday and a godawful lifestyle show called Maranda: Where You Live on Saturday). Besides, I love the fact that they designed their newsdesk so when a female reporter sits down on the side, they show off their curves (damn does Ginger Zee have a nice ass).
But seriously, NBC shot themselves in the foot again. When will it stop? I think that until they positively get their shit together, this is what we're going to get from them: fluff pieces over the things people TRULY want. The Kardashians can wait. Hell, if they were in the World Trade Towers while they were collapsing, the world would have been a slightly better place.
Wait.... Too soon? Naaaaaah.
