NBC Moving Ahead with Megyn Kelly-Alex Jones Interview Despite Backlash

NEW YORK (AP) — NBC News is moving ahead with plans to air Megyn Kelly’s interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones this weekend despite a backlash that has cost the show advertisers and led to Kelly being dropped as host for an event by an organization founded by parents of children killed at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.

  • Killer Marmot

    Alex Jones is a loony but I don’t mind him being interviewed. I don’t buy into the idea of “deplatforming” everyone I disagree with.

    • Clausewitz

      Jones is indeed a bit of a whack job, but that still doesn’t justify the left’s call for censorship.

      • Don’t forget to buy a case of the “Titanium Butter Organic Vitamin Supplement” (specially designed to withstand nuclear war) whenever he interrupts his own news commentary to tell you about it.

        Apart from that (and the occasional out-of-control rant where you can’t understand a word he’s saying), I think he’s a genius. He’s a veritable walking encyclopaedia on many subjects.

    The interview was never not going to be shown. This is nothing but a PR stunt to garner interest which leads to eyeballs.

    It’s too bad Kelly ruined her beautiful Blonde hair by having the roots dyed black.
