During that moment of silence, hope you also remembered the Maine. Also, the Alamo.

Meh.  While I don't care about Kris Jenner at all, these "required" tributes are getting a little out of hand.  And while I didn't watch NBC today (and never watch morning shows)... I'm pretty damn sure they mentioned 9/11 many other times.

Being patriotic is like being religious. If you want to be, that's great. If you go around trying to shame other people for not being as patriotic as you, then you're an arsehole.

Can we please stop the tearing of hair, the beating of breasts and the wailing every anniversary of the September 11 attacks?

Memorials and rememberances are one thing, but this country is way past that.

Stop wallowing, America. It's pathetic.

I think some people actually like tragedy as long as they're the ones observing as opposed to living it. I'm not saying they're callous. I just think they like the excitement of being involved in something bigger than themselves.

Gig103: Good for NBC. A moment of silence is enough to get people to flip channels. If they land on NBC before they get to the cable networks, they might stay.


Except it was Kris Jenner. I would rather have every station silent than actually listen to her or make her think she's important in any way.

There is some major 9/11 backlash in this thread. Where does it come from? Why is everyone so ho hum about it?


Because our country has gone to shiat since that day, and we're farking tired of being told that we have to be these good little patriots and that our country is the greatest thing ever, when we can all see that we're being screwed left and right. Meanwhile, our politicians do absolutely nothing to solve any real problems but keep blithering on about terrorists and how our country is being destroyed by them.

craig328: You want to be a reverent patriot? Fine, do it quietly. You wanna be a smug jaded asshole with nothing nice to say? Fine, do it quietly.


In the spirit of the definition, raging about "smug jaded assholes" in a Fark thread about one Television station poking fun at another over what they chose to cover on a Tuesday in September isn't exactly a shining example of "doing it quietly", in any case.

craig328: My daughter is 12, my son is now 10. We both sat down this evening and watched the 102 minutes show on History. No commentary until the end...just eyewitness videos of that morning from 9 different perspectives. Nobody telling them what to think, how to react...just showing them what happened.

We discussed much about it. I think that my daughter finally gets it after seeing video of something falling down the side of tower 1 and asking what it was. I told her it was a person and she asked why they jumped. I had to explain to her that all those people got up that morning, got cleaned up, dressed, maybe had something to eat and kissed the spouse and maybe kids goodbye and went into work. By 9:45 on a day that was supposed to be like any other, they had to decide whether to burn to death or jump to their death. She'd been aware of what 9-11 was and what happened but I think that's the first time that she truly "got it".

Anyway, the shows on television about 9-11 were worthwhile at my house this year. I don't know that I'll ever be as smug and jaded and flippant about mass murder as some of Fark seems to be. Sorry it's such a drag to those folks. You can get back to your mass consumerism and constant, everpresent entertainment and attention deficit disorder tomorrow.


It's not about being "flippant about mass murder," it's an acceptance of the fact that everyone greives, remembers and memorializes in different ways and the shocking inability of many people to accept that. I have no ill will any American who chooses to memorialize 9/11 in any way they deem appropriate. I have a problem with calling out other people or Farking TV Networks of all things for "Not memorializimg correctly" I'm sorry, thats horseshiat and the second anyone starts doing that, I'm going to immediately start questioning their motives.

To me, when people start doing that shiat, they are doing it to make it all about them instead of who it should really be about - the heroes and victims of that day. It's a memorial, it's not a farking contest. People need to stop turning everything into a goddamned spectator sport.

Gunny Highway: The Homer Tax: What sane person gives a shiat?

I dont think anyone is upset but you dont find it curious at all? Why would they do that?

I think I would have the same "what were they thinking?" reaction if they had Paris Hilton talking about her new merkin instead of going to the president at a memorial for the Oklahoma City Bombing.

It isnt rage worthy, it is just really strange.

There is some major 9/11 backlash in this thread. Where does it come from? Why is everyone so ho hum about it?


Because its been over a farking decade, to be honest with you. All of these gestures year after year are starting to seem fake and ring hollow. This "moment of silence" is starting to mean as much as a yellow ribbon car magnet or a flag lapel pin. It's just a goddamn show and I'd rather they do nothing at all than some sort of compulsory "I'm sadder than you" dick waving contest.

11 years is a long time to beat off about your dead mother/spouse at every family reunion. After a while it gets pathetic, and then it just gets annoying - it changes for everyone, but people who truly can't let go are usually referred to counseling, not lauded. We all remember, most of us get sad and a little angry when we think about it and see the flags at half mast today. We also remember that the men behind it are all violently dead, the disasters of two wars that followed, and the endless petty bickering over the site, to say nothing of having seen the same tributes and outpourings for so many years now that they lose a bit of the effect.

A moment of silence isn't bad. Personal reflection never is. The hours of endless what does 9/11 mean to me surrounding that is just attention whoring.

Most of the overt jingoism of the day is probably affected for the admiration of others, anyway, like crocodile tears over dear old mom to get in your aunt's and uncles' good graces. Meh.

i live in nyc then and 9/11 devastated me. shrines everywhere, missing persons posters, open weeping on the streets, a massive funeral pyre burning for months...

strangely i moved on without any kind need for a ritualistic moment of silence prompted from the boob tube.

what are people thinking about during this? i bet lunch makes an appearance.

i have no soul i guess. but i can still tear up a dance floor.

So tune into one of the other dozen networks that are airing it.

For the record I don't advocate watch Kris Jenner regardless of what is on any other channel, but we don't all need to relive 9/11 minute by minute each and every year.

This. They used to show the reading of the names and people were outraged when certain networks didn't show that or they stopped doing it. A year or two from now, no one will stop their TV programming for a moment of silence and no one will think anything of it. Part of healing is moving on.
