NBC Skips 9/11 “Moment of Silence” for Kardashian Interview

As if we needed another reason to hate the Kardashians...

At 8:46 a.m. on Tuesday, September 11, most national news outlets took a break from their regular programming to air a special "moment of silence" from New York City and Washington D.C. to honor the victims of 9/11. We say "most" because, as it turns out, not everyone was a participant. While FOX, CBS, ABC, CNBC and MSNBC went quiet at this time, which was the moment 11 years ago when the first plane hit the Twin Towers, NBC continued on with the 'Today' show, which just so happened to feature an interview with Kris Jenner of 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians.'

Teen Busted After Calling 911 to Report Strange Dream

The inappropriate 911 call has long been a weird news staple. Confused citizens have used emergency services to report everything from a sandwich without enough mayo to a broken iPhone.

But, as far as we know, this Tennessee woman is the first person to call 911 on Hardee’s. So welcome to the big time, home of the Thick Burger.

Police Concerned About Suicide Attempts at the 9/11 Memorial

The focal point of the National September 11 Memorial is a pair of sunken granite pools with three-story waterfalls that mark where the fallen World Trade Center towers once stood.

And while they’re certainly beautiful, the New York City Police Department is watching them for an entirely different reason: they’re worried that grief-stricken visitors might try to use the site to commit suicide.

When his relatives visited the memorial during the 10th anniversary commemorations on Sunday, they were shocked to see his first name had been spelled “Jeffery” instead.
