Newtown parent won't view NBC interview of Alex Jones

Newtown parent won't view NBC interview of Alex Jones

Megyn Kelly's Sunday Night has seen no growth after her scandalous interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, can report.

Throughout the week leading up to Sunday's airing of the interview, Jones had been busy whipping up conspiracy theories that NBC and Kelly would misrepresent him and make him look bad.

Jones has called the school shooting a hoax. But he continued to express doubts, saying that he looked at footage of children leaving the building and thought it looked like a "drill". Jones leaked audio of his conversations with Kelly days before the broadcast.

His comments come after a top Iranian general claimed the Islamic Republic had evidence the USA was directly supporting the group. President Donald Trump accused Iran of fueling "the fires of sectarian conflict and terror" and called for its global isolation.

Unsettling as it may be to have to aired it at all, Kelly's 20-minute segment on Jones and his influence (his fans include President Donald Trump) seemed to have benefited greatly from the pre-criticism and brouhaha that swirled around it last week (one NBC-owned station declined to air it; an advertiser backed out), assuring that Kelly and her producers delivered a tightly edited, firmly reported, no-nonsense story about someone who tells risky lies. Reruns ran after "Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly". There were still many on both sides of the aisle who refused to watch the interview or saw the interview itself as reckless, but others praised Kelly for exposing Jones to the world. Kelly's 7 p.m. newsmagazine show managed just a 0.5 rating/3 share and 3.5 million total viewers.

Kelly, now with NBC, told A.P. she respected Sandy Hook Promise's decision to drop her from a Wednesday event in Washington, but was disappointed. In the interview, he never gave a direct answer when Kelly pressed him to admit he was wrong.

Of course, what Kelly was clearly demonstrating was that there is no vetting process.

I'd promised that, if we won the Champions League and I scored a goal, I'd do it. This is only a positive thing for the team".

The Kelly interview was a "heavily edited overview of who Jones is", according to New York Magazine. Her star power had grown after she challenged Trump during a 2015 Republican debate on his history of sexist remarks and the candidate responded with a series of angry tweets and other comments, sometimes crude and personal, and boycotted a later debate because she was one of the moderators.

The lawyers representing 12 people who lost loved ones in the 2012 shooting had pleaded with NBC officials not to air the interview due to the pain Jones' hoax claims has caused them.
