Today Show Skips Moment of Silence for 9/11

The 'Today Show' chose to interview Kim Kardashian's mom on Tuesday morning instead of observing a moment of silence in memory of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.

At 8:46 every year since the attacks of September 11, 2001, a moment of silence has been observed at 8:46 am, the moment when the first plane slammed into the Twin Towers. President Obama and the First Lady led the moment of silence at the White House, and newscasts on other the other two broadcast morning shows -- 'Good Morning America' and 'CBS This Morning' -- aired the solemn ceremony.
