CNN chief: Alex Jones interview worthy, but NBC mishandled

17 June 2017

Former NBC News Future Star Megyn Kelly has seen her weeks-long career as a magazine show host take more hits than a Drudge siren with the word "Kenya" in it, first over her inaugural interview with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, and then for her scheduled Father's Day interview with conspiracy theorist and Trump-whisperer Alex Jones.

The lawyers representing several Sandy Hook parents in their lawsuit against the manufacturer of the AR-15 rifle sent a letter to NBC President Andrew Lack late Thursday threatening legal action against NBC if it airs the interview.

After the debut episode of "Sunday Night" drew about six million viewers on June 4, the show's second episode drew just 3.6 million viewers, less than half the number drawn by a repeat episode of CBS' "60 Minutes", Fox News reported.

Jefferies Group LLC Reaffirms Buy Rating for Zpg Plc (ZPG)
Five equities research analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and seven have issued a buy rating to the stock. It has underperformed by 77.78% the S&P500.The move comes after 5 months negative chart setup for the $36.86M company.

Kelly has called Jones' claims "revolting" but says there's value in exposing what he says to the American people.

Jones said in a video released Monday night that he doesn't want the interview to air, either.

"I've never done this in 22 years, I've never recorded another journalist, but I knew it was a fraud, that it was [a] lie", he said. Jones, who is the operator of the website InfoWars, has come under fire for claiming that the school shooting was a hoax, and that the victims-20 of whom were children-were played by actors.

The team will then return to its Santiago Bernabeu stadium for more festivities that should last well into the night. This club is the biggest in Champions League history ever, it's great to be a part of and we want to win more".

Jones says the interview with Kelly didn't portray that, and instead made him look like a Sandy Hook conspiracy theorist.

"It was all crap", Jones bellowed.

Option two: Kelly lied in the above statement and always meant to do a hard-hitting, skeptical, probing interview once the cameras were turned on, and she was willing to say anything she had to in order to get Jones to agree to do the interview. Over the last few days, we have listened intently to Sandy Hook parents, our viewers and importantly, to you. Megyn Kelly waltzed in here and told me she was going to do a softball interview with Alex Jones. We got it all. "It's not going to be some gotcha hit piece". I just think that's completely inapproprirate. The political commentator's resolution inspired the far-right radio show host to release their off-the-record pre-interview in its entirety. I don't hate the families; we question everything. "Which is why we can not fathom - from a moral, ethical or legal standpoint - NBC's decision to amplify the voice of a man who has made a living debasing that suffering and smearing our clients' names", said the lawyers, from the firm Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder. Kelly, now with NBC, told A.P. that she respects Sandy Hook Promise's decision to drop her from a Wednesday event in Washington, but is disappointed. I'm obsessed with you.' You know, wheeling around in her seat.
