As I sit here typing out this thread, I watch NBS on the TV.

Presently Matt Lauer of the Today show, is doing a segment on cooking, one of his co anchors just finished a segment on education.

On all the other major programs channels...CBS, ABC etc....including FOXX....they are doing the 9/11 rememberance programing.

At ground zero right now, they are reading the names of the 9/11
victims. FOXX is running their names in a string on the bottom of the
screen.

Obviouls NBC, knows the days and what happened. Yet they are ignoring it. With all the recent political aspects of the Preseidential
Campaign....my connection is the NBC producer made a decision
to avoid the 9/11 rememberance program for mendane programming of
a non political consquence.

Maybe NBC should take the saying of the today Show when Matt goes on a trip someplace in the world....Where in the World is Matt Lauer?....
change to......... Where in the World is NBC?


Now NBC has changed programming and it is the Ergis and Kelley show. Regis and Kelley are talking about it....but no photos of it.
Sure sometime during the day NBC will turn to 9/11 remember programming. they talked about 9/11 for the first 5 minutes of the programming....Regis shifted the to how to use a blackberry and cach card uses....to humor.

There we have it. sure sometime during the day....NBC will do a
9/11 rememberence program...but not in lock step with others....that doing live from the White house, from ground zero, from Pentagon.

That there are major media outlets in America that wish 9/11 never happened or that we had to face the events of that day.

So let us tie this to the present Presidential campaign. NBC is one of the most liberal of all the media outlets. This according to FOXX's
OReilly. Does anyone wish to debate media bias in its presentation of the campaign? Wish to say media like NBC have not favored Obama in the campaign?

Sure they have. And to the degree a group's politics are to that lean, I don't begrudge them. But when I also here of the petty attacks by medial like NBC on Sarah Palin, to her li[stick quote, her clothes and into the more vile comments on her family issues. Now I think that they have gone beyond that leaning.....they are biased in my opinion.

That NBC cannot remember the 100s of brave acts that day, 7 year later in a timely manner.....just should tell us all .....some want the world to be a playground......when in reality, at times its a very dangerous place. They ignore the truth of this, and they fail there duties as Amercians, journalists, and as decent people that needed to respects at this hour, 7 years later.

I think that Regis knew this. He is a talented entertainer and knows what is going in the country today. His transition to regular content, he looked as he had swallowed a really bad oyster.

When Obama and McCain can put aside politics ...a joint statement....and NBC cannot do 9/11 rememberance programming.
Maybe NBC is even further liberal than Barak.

Seems to me that you read an awful lot into very little.

What has 9/11 got to do with Obama and McCain's contest?

I have no idea what any of your channels do at any time but it seems that this is just an excuse to wrap the flag of 9/11 around conservatives.

All Americans I am sure are equally sad today as are many others. It is not a party political issue

Here it Fallingman.

9/11 is the day that all of America can wrap itself in the flag. Those that died that day, those survived, those the fight today, those that live today that are the target of future Islamic terrorism.

That NBC cannot take this time from it commercial money making programming shows that it does not to wrap itself in that same flag.

The connection to the present election, is also seen. If NBC did 9/11
programing...they woul dhave to place men like Jim Beam..whose son did on the crashed aircraft in PA. Most consider that plane was headed for the Congress, that was in session. McCain was in Senate that day
He was a target that day. Later he thanked Jim Beam for his son and other's storming of the plane's cockpit to keep it from making the attack.

Now do you understand, Fallingman?

This is day that America stands as one, and took a blow that many in the world would spin and fabricate on. But when you see the faces of
the victims, see the fear in their faces, see the crashing towers.....you
knew that the world had changed. That America was going to go anyplace in the world....Ahghanistan, Iraq, Iran, or any other country and even your backyard, Fallingman....to defeat terrorist.

That NBC cannot or will not tell that story 7 years later....tells me all I
need to know about NBC's bias in the present political environment of the country.

On my tv only the cable channels, including MSNBC, are doing 911 programs. The free channels are showing the same crap they always do.

Apart from the wrapping in the flag stuff....which I abhor at any time...I see where you are coming from. It is still not relevent to the McCain/Obama contest though. It is just another story of commerce and money.

Obama was not on the national scene during 9/11, Fallingman.

If NBC does a 9/11 remember program, they got to show GBW, and many other REP....that were in office at the time....making decision that protected the country. That is very pro to McCain in the present political situation.

Also 9/11 while being debated many times to Iraq and where none wish to revisist.....gives cause to why Iraq occurred. Sadam could fund terrorism. Give question to Obama negative Iraq position.

So, please don't tell me that this was not politically motivated on NBC part.

The reason those earlier post had so many typos....other just being angry at NBC....tears in the eyes. Every flag in the country is at half mass.....and NBC is doing regular broadcasting.....during the principle time slot a rememberance would be done?

So here is what I think......time for NBC to do a little rememberance next year or pay some big bucks or lose thier FCC license next year. How about a peice of National legislation with the title of:

9/11 Memorial Media Bill- 100 Years (starting 9/11/2001 running to 2101)

if a major media fail to give 2 hours of rememberance programing to the events of 9/11, it shall forfiet either or one or both of the following:

1) Its FCC license for 1 year
and/or
2) $1,000,000

fund to go to the 9/11 Museum

if a weekly or daily newspaper or magazine fails to give 1/3 of it front cover to rememberance articles, news or photos, it shall forfeit

$100,000

funds to go the 9/11 Museum

If public radio station fails to give 1 hour 9/11 programing dedicated to
9/11 events. it stands to lose either one or both of the following:

1) Its FCC license for 1 year
and/or
$250,000

funds to the 9/11 Museum

Monitoered and implimented by the FCC.

Prepping the draft bill for submission to all of Congress within the next week's time. Submission to them later this week.

We are in the middle of a campaign year.....I suspect it will get good support on both side of the aisle on it.

I want our kids, their kids, thier kids and their kids after to see what was done on 9/11. Without any PC textbook that has been made from the 9/11 conspriracy theories and far left spins. If American media would have done the right thing, as many did, but NBC choose not too. I would not have to propose the legistation. But now that NBC wants to find out the fall out to this is...fine they can have legislation to deal with for the next 93 years that obligates them to do so.

One can only hope someday you get what you so richly deserve.

For now, you just need to be reported. Better start shedding this skin so you can come back as a different snake soon... but we'll deal with that one, too.
