NBC is scrambling not to lose its viewership and sponsor base by airing an interview Megyn Kelly did with controversial radio host, Alex Jones.
After a firestorm erupted over Kelly giving Jones a national platform to explain his claims that Sandy Hook was a hoax, and that 9-11 was an inside job, and that ‘pizzagate’ points to Hillary Clinton and her involvement in child sex slavery, Fox News is reporting that NBC has decided to completely reedit the interview.
In a last ditch effort to show viewers that Kelly intended to expose Jones and his conspiracy theories, versus promote him and his show, NBC made a slew of calls this week to invite Sandy Hook families on the program.
According to Fox News, “NBC News execs were scrambling following the furor over Kelly’s decision to give a platform to the controversial Infowars host.” They continued, “A contrite Kelly personally called the Sandy Hook families, we’re told, to invite them on the show to counter Jones’ rhetoric.” They added, “A source told us, NBC was scrambling to find a way out of this mess without having to back down and cancel Sunday’s episode of Megyn’s show. Megyn and her producers made numerous calls to the Sandy Hook families this week to ask them to appear on the show. Some refused because they didn’t think appearing on her show would do enough to counter Alex Jones’ venom.”
Fox News quoted another source at NBC, who allegedly said, “Everyone on the show believes it’s vitally important that the piece conveys the immense pain that Jones has caused the Sandy Hook families.”
According to the NY Post, Neil Heslin, the father of 6-year-old Jesse Lewis, who was killed in the Sandy Hook shooting, agreed to be interviewed by Kelly.
Kelly points out that interviewing Jones was good journalism considering the president has praised Jones for helping him win the election, and for seeing to it that Jones has White House press credentials. Meanwhile, Jones released secret recordings he grabbed during his interview with Kelly. He vows to release the full tapes in the near future.
