The buildup to the Megyn Kelly interview of controversial radio host Alex Jones is getting more attention than NBC ever imagined. For Kelly, this is a nightmare. For Jones, this is the best thing he could wish for.
Kelly and NBC would have to pay millions of dollars to get the sort of pre-airing attention they’ve gotten this week. But it’s all backfired. Advertisers are pulling out of the show because they want nothing to do with Jones who is known for launching conspiracy theories. Meanwhile, Jones is calling for the show to be pulled because he says it is misleading. Jones claims the promo is edited to push lies about him.
Calls for Kelly’s firing from NBC are spreading on social media at a vicious rate, and it’s all based on promo clips of the show. Plus, she has been uninvited from a speaking event because of her interview with Jones.
Kelly has put out a statement saying she is sickened by Jones’ claims that Sandy Hook was a hoax, and NBC is sticking by the interview saying it will air the program on Sunday night.
The buildup has reached a new high as Jones is slowly leaking portions of the preinterview conversations between himself and Kelly. The leaks are recordings that Jones made secretly during his time with Kelly. You can listen to some of it below. Keep in mind, I can tell that Jones has edited some of the conversation with Kelly.
FROM JONES’ WEBSITE:
Alex Jones has released recordings made during a pre-interview between himself and Megyn Kelly to set the record straight after the release of the highly edited promo for the NBC host’s upcoming hit piece.
