Megyn Kelly, NBC under fire over ‘sickening’ interview with conspiracy theorist

NBC News and Megyn Kelly have already drawn controversy, and Kelly hasn’t even been with the network that long.

Kelly recently announced an upcoming interview with Alex Jones, who is the showrunner for InfoWars and it a well-known conspiracy theorist and far-right radio host. Among Jones’ conspiracy theories are his thoughts that the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, were an “inside job” as well as his claims that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012 was faked and that in addition to the children and employee deaths being fakes, the parents of the 20 children who were killed were all actors.

After announcing the interview, many blasted Kelly for what they said was normalizing the extreme views of Jones, though Kelly argued that the reason behind the interview was that Jones’ show and his views had been brought into the spotlight by the White House itself when Jones was given press credentials.

Many don’t know him; our job is 2 shine a light,” she wrote, pointing out that President Donald Trump himself had appeared on Jones’ show and had praised him, meaning he had already been brought into the spotlight.

Still, that didn’t stop the outrage as people called for a boycott of both Kelly’s show and NBC News itself over the interview, with many people posting pictures of the children who were killed at Sandy Hook and demanding that Kelly refuse an audience to someone who had disrespected their memory so completely.
