Megyn Kelly fights Alex Jones interview uproar, says she will 'shine a light' on Trump ties
It was not immediately clear how many companies had pulled ads from this week's edition of "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly". Nicole is one of the co-founders of Sandy Hook Promise.
In the interview, Kelly presses Jones on his statements regarding the Sandy Hook massacre.
Multiple advertisers have toldNBC that they don't want to be anywhere near Megyn Kelly's forthcoming interview with controversial media personality Alex Jones. Multiple advertisers, including JP Morgan Chase, have withdrawn from Kelly's show in protest; the bank's chief marketing officer, Kristin Lemkau, tweeted: "As an advertiser, I'm repulsed that @megynkelly would give a second of airtime to someone who says Sandy Hook and Aurora are hoaxes". Following her interview with the conspiracy theorist, the news anchor was sacked as the emcee of annual Sandy Hook Promise Gala on June 14 in Washington D.C. Alex previously dubbed the 2012 school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, which left 20 first-graders and six adults dead, a government hoax. With the upcoming interview airing on Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly, WVIT NBC Connecticut will make sure to give voice to those most affected by the tragedy, and most impacted by the interview.
I have another defense for Kelly: She just finished interviewing Vladimir Putin, the president of Russian Federation, who is known for telling all sorts of lies and suspected of having many of his opponents killed.
As for Jones, he's not the first despicable person to be interviewed in the hunt for TV viewers, and not the only alt-right ideologue to attract mainstream media attention. "As a result of his Sandy Hook conspiracy, so-called "Sandy Hook truthers" have harassed the parents of victims, accusing them of lying". "While it's not always popular, it's important".
But it's his appearance with Kelly this Sunday on NBC that has kickstarted a new round of outrage, and in a time when you'd think we'd be all tapped out.
There are many, many other very bad things where that came from - usually Alex Jones' pie hole.
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. He's been elevated by five or six million viewers or listeners, and by the president of the United States.
The interview is scheduled to air on her new segment on Sunday, June 18, which coincides with Father's Day, NBC reported. "As you know, journalists don't get the choice over who has power or influence in our country".
Following the release of the promo, relatives of some of the people killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting called on Kelly and NBC to pull the interview.
