NBC Disrespects 9/11
What did Nightly News do last Saturday to honor the memory of those who were killed nine years ago in the World Trade Center attack? Nothing. Nada. Zip. There was no Nightly News on Saturday. That's because the thoughtful geniuses at NBC decided that it was more important (meaning more profitable) to air Notre Dame football than to air Nightly News. Sept. 11 is the most solemn day of remembrance on the American calendar. For most Americans, the wounds from that day nine years ago are still raw. But NBC didn't think that a Nightly News broadcast was needed to report on the day's events at the three 9/11 sites. Instead, they decided to pay tribute to those who died by showing football and earning lots of ad dollars. Great job, NBC. Real sensitive.
