September 11 Tributes and NBC's Huge Fail

Every September 11, those of us who were conscious and understanding of world events back in 2001, commemorate the anniversary of the most devastating civilian attack on American soil in history. We hold tributes, we honor the victims, we honor the heroes and we all remind ourselves with the two-word phrase, "Never Forget".

This morning was no different. President Obama gave a beautiful speech at Ground Zero at the time the first plane struck the towers and news media all around took a break from their normal schedule to air it. News media, that is, except for NBC.

NBC, deciding they couldn't be bothered with a speech from the president, instead aired an interview with Kris Jenner, the deplorable mother of the deplorable one-hit wonder porn star Kim Kardashian, discussing her new breast implants.

(Pictured Below: Insufferable piece of shit)


This revered family of useless wastes of space were given air time over the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES giving a speech in remembrance of the 9/11 victims?? And this is yet another example of how our journalists, who used to boast the likes of Walter Cronkite, David Brinkley, Edward R. Murrow, Bob Woodward, Peter Jennings and Tom Brokaw, have completely and utterly failed us.

Journalism has simply become an extension of the National Enquirer, a tabloid that used to be synonymous with housewives who would read it and watch soap opera's to unwind before getting back to running the house. Now, that tabloid is considered real news. TMZ, E! News, Yahoo! OMG, and even those considered respectable news outlets are choosing to lead with celebrity news (many of whom are now just famous for being famous) rather than actual issues affecting the world.

Children now aspire to be famous and have a reality show rather than achieve fame because of an accomplishment.

I give up, media. If you would like to regress and show a complete lack of priority, please by all means, suit yourself. But don't drag the few intelligent remaining people in this world with you.

I know, I couldn't even believe that. At first I thought it was something they'd interrupt and come back to, but when I realized the President is speaking... and so is Kris Jenner...I assumed someone was obviously in the process of being fired because who does that? Even if you don't even like the President, it's about paying respects to everyone who died for absolutely no reason. Unbelievable.
