With Melissa & Joey no longer on the air, Melissa Joan Hart could pursue a position in the news producing biz. She is not happy with the Sept. 11 coverage and she'd like to see something done about it.

The actress — a staunch conservative who has appeared on Fox News — called out the network, as well as CNN, for not having continuous coverage of the Sept. 11 memorial on Friday, the 14th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.

Hart, who lives in Connecticut with her husband and their three sons, did give a thumbs-up to NBC News, sharing the network's Instagram photo of a rainbow over Manhattan on Thursday.

"This lightens my heart as I wake up today and am discouraged by the lack of footage around the memory of those lost," she wrote. "Have we so quickly forgotten about the victims, the survivors, the families left behind and the first responders who so heroically ran into the buildings while everyone else ran out?! 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. #neverforget #Repost @nbcnightlynews."

The motivation driving her to speak out? Her sons: Mason, 9, Braydon, 7, and Tucker, 3.

"My children need to know that this day changed our lives in the U.S. and the world and without solid news coverage, I'm discouraged," Hart tweeted, again with the hashtag "#neverforget."

Making a good point, Hart, who does a lot of work with military wives, said that one calendar day should be dedicated to the victims, especially since we live in a time when 365 days of the year are devoted to the Kardashians.

"If kardashians can be covered 24/7, why can't we have one day dedicated to a moment in history that changed our path?" the blonde asked. "I don't need to see tragedy, I need to see stories of healing &memory! #neverforget."

Her Kardashian comment was retweeted over 100 times and had more than 300 favorites in just a few hours.

Hart, who has been working on her children's fashion line since her ABC Family series was canceled earlier this year, ended by regramming a photo of artist Spencer Finch's beautiful watercolor installation at the National September 11 Memorial Museum in NYC. It says, "No day shall erase you from the memory of time."

Hart is seeing to that.
