News Report Disrespects National Anthem

What do you think of this.
On 10/26/12 the KCRA TV news at 5:00 PM did a remote news piece on a special function in the City of Modesto, California. KCRA news is a Hurst Publications station out of Sacramento, California.
When the station cut to the remote news person in Modesto. That news person talked over the singing of the US National Anthem. She even mentioned that she heard the Anthem and appeared to have to talk louder to be heard over it.
Am I wrong in thinking that this station cares more about the news and meeting it's schedule than it does about our country's National Anthem. Even school children know what to do.
I have comlained to the station and the FCC about what happened. What do members of AARP think about this and what else should be done to correct this outward showing of disrespect for our country?
