One-time Fox News sweetheart Megyn Kelly made her debut on NBC News a little over a week ago with a Vladimir Putin interview, and it was supposed to be a real fucking get, or something, but it left some people screaming at her to take a long course at Howard Stern’s Night School Of How To Really Interview A Bitch, because she didn’t get anything out of him. Megyn is getting shit again and this time it’s for an interview that hasn’t even aired yet. On Sunday night, NBC will barf up an interview that Megyn did with conspiracy theorist and “performance artist” Alex Jones, who thinks the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre was a staged government hoax involving actors. Because Megyn gave a platform to a tinfoil hat-wearing ass nugget, she’s been dropped as host of a Sandy Hook benefit and her Sunday night show has lost a sponsor.
A piece of Megyn’s interview with Alex is about his theory that Sandy Hook was a hoax. Well, who knew that when you interview a Sandy Hook truther, a Sandy Hook benefit will let you know that they want nothing to do with you. The Washington Post says that the organizers of an annual gala for the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation, a nonprofit gun violence prevention group founded by family members of some of the Sandy Hook shooting victims, has let Megyn go as host. I know, Megyn Kelly hosting a Sandy Hook gala is a WTF in itself.
“Sandy Hook Promise cannot support the decision by Megyn or NBC to give any form of voice or platform to Alex Jones and have asked Megyn Kelly to step down as our Promise Champion Gala host. It is our hope that Megyn and NBC reconsider and not broadcast this interview.”
Chase has also washed their hands of Megyn Kelly and have pulled their ads from her show.
It doesn’t seem like NBC is going to drop Alex Jones’ interview. Liz Cole, the executive producer of Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly, said that they’re serious journalists and it’s their job to interview people in the news no matter how gross they are. Liz said that people should watch the interview before getting outraged. Megyn spit up her own statement, saying that she also gets the heaves from Alex Jones’ Sandy Hook theory, but that as a serious journalist, it’s her job to “shine a light.”
Even Alex Jones himself wants NBC to drop his interview into the shit can. Alex calls his interview with Megyn a “hit piece” and says the show “misrepresented” his views on Sandy Hook.
So let’s see…
Megyn’s NBC News show hasn’t even been on two weeks and so far not many are impressed, she lost an advertiser and the smegma dingle she interviewed isn’t happy with her interview. Outside of NBC Studios right now, Tamron Hall is cackling into the air as Billy Bush and Kathy Griffin stroll in with their resumes to let HR know that they’re available Sunday nights, and any night really.
