Thanks to the team over at Daily Intel and the power of video editing, you can now cringe and actually watch the Kardashian broodmother narrate this morning's moment of silence for 9/11 victims by talking about her boob job on NBC's Today show. The video doesn't seem to be embeddable, but Joe Coscarelli and Jake Moore have stitched together the coverage of four networks — NBC alongside MSNBC, Fox News, and CNBC — to show NBC's faux pas in devastating fashion. There are bits of Kris Jenner explaining that she's doing the public a great service by showing her breast implant surgery on television (we really wish we were kidding) while host Savannah Guthrie feigned interest. While elsewhere in broadcast universe, there's coverage of typically blabby Fox & Friends, Morning Joe and Squawk Box analysts all doing the right thing and staying quiet during a moment of silence while showing footage of a solemn-looking President Obama and First Lady at the White House. An NBC spokesperson tells The Atlantic Wire, "The Today show dedicated a considerable amount of time to September 11th coverage this morning throughout the entire show." But perhaps not enough. For the West Coast airing of Today, the moment of silence was included in the broadcast.
