NBC Holding 'Crisis Meetings' Over Megyn Kelly-Alex Jones Interview

NBC defends Kelly's Alex Jones interview

To say this is not how NBC envisioned Kelly's first few weeks is an understatement.

A year ago, a New York City man who was a follower of Jones was sentenced to probation after approaching a sister of slain Sandy Hook teacher Victoria Soto during a charity road race and angrily claiming the shootings never took place.

However, Kelly has continued to defend her interview with Jones, while trying to sympathize with the families that were affected by the conspiracy theories presented. We will continue our coverage throughout the week, including a special report on our Sunday 11pm newscast after Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly.NBC Connecticut is committed to giving the Sandy Hook families a voice, today, tomorrow and in the future.

She went on saying, "I find Alex Jones's suggestion on that Sandy Hook was "a hoax" as a personally revolting as every rational person does", before adding that the goal of the interview was to "discuss the considerable falsehoods he promoted with near impunity". While the company has declined to comment, the Wall Street Journal reported that the bank asked for all of its ads to be removed from "all NBC news programming until after the show airs".

No matter how hard Kelly might push him in the interview - and it's important to remember we haven't seen it - nothing will change the deluded minds who buy into Jones' garbage.

Trump, she said, has helped elevate Jones with his attention and letting "Infowars" in some White House events, she said.




Kelly's Sunday-night program, the aptly titled Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly, premiered to modest ratings on June 4th, 2017, despite a high-profile interview with Russian president Vladimir Putin. "Letting them rig it, letting them interview me for four hours to edit it together, and then be able to show people what was really said".

However, it would appear that Jones already has a platform, with his hit radio show and his website regularly consulted by millions of people. Last March, Scott Pelley of "60 Minutes" interviewed Mike Cernovich, who's also part of the Jones conspiracy network.

"As journalists, we don't get to interview only the good guys - that's not journalism", Ms. Kelly said.

"They're scared of what we're doing", Jones said. Of course Alex Jones would agree to come on.

The third annual Sandy Hook Promise Champions Gala at the Mellon Auditorium along the National Mall was meant to be hosted by NBC News anchor Kelly. "Alex Jones is demonized because he has original thought", Infowars Owen Shroyer said in another segment about the Megyn Kelly interview, posted on Wednesday to Jones' YouTube channel.

The interview in question, set to air on Sunday, was always going to be controversial, both for Jones' mainstream media-loathing fans and everyone else.
