Melissa Joan Hart calls out Fox News and CNN for their lack of Sept. 11 coverage

Melissa Joan Hart took to social media this Sept. 11 to air her grievances with the news media's coverage of the anniversary of the terrorist attack.

And she kind of makes a good point about it, too.

She tweeted, several times, calling out several news outlets for their lack of continuous coverage of Sept. 11 memorials. The outspoken, ultraconservative actress has actually appeared on the same station she calls out, too.

She said, "Extremely disappointed in @foxnews and @CNN for not having continual coverage of Sept11 memorial &names listed on the banner!! #neverforget."

She did, however, Instagram a digital high-five to NBC for their sharing of the beautiful rainbow over Manhattan, New York City, today.

She said, "This lightens my heart as I wake up today and am discouraged by the lack of footage around the memory of those lost… At least this photo reminds us that there is a hope for peace and love in the world and a promise for a better place in eternal peace."

She explained that her rage stemmed from the fact that she wants to make sure her children grow up in a world where they learn how greatly the attack on our soil literally changed the fabric of our society.

She tweeted, "My children need to know that this day changed our lives forever in the U.S. and the world and without solid news coverage, I’m discouraged. #neverforget."

Then she really drives her point across (and honestly hits a little close to home for an entertainment writer), "If kardashians can be covered 24/7, why can't we have one day dedicated to a moment in history that changed our path? I don't need to see tragedy, I need to see stories of healing &memory!"

One of her final thoughts on the topic was another strong one. She reposted a photo of a quote found on the wall at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York City.
