Summary: ” As you know, journalists don’t get the choice over with who has power, or influence in our country.” I would submit to you that, neither I, nor NBC News has elevated Alex Jones in any way. The decision of NBC to offer conspiracy theorist, and Sandy Hook troll Alex Jones a prime time interview with Megyn Kelly this coming Sunday has been held a meeting with disgust and disbelief across social and mainstream media. Now insiders within the network are voicing their discontent with the decision to offer a platform to the full-time conspiracy theorist, who presents the web show Infowars and professes to believe a whole range of outrageous propositions. It left me and numerous other Americans, asking the very question that prompted this interview: How does Jones, who traffics in these outrageous conspiracy theories, have the look up to of the president of the United States and a growing audience of millions?” As the Daily Beast reported this week, the family members of those killed at Sandy Hook have been harassed and trolled because of Jones’ conspiracy-theorizing. Among Jones’ often ridiculous, or predictable conspiracy positions – that the U.S. Kelly has been fired as the patron of a non-profit, Sandy Hook Promise, devoted to the families of those affected by the killings. They anticipate to lose, and gain viewers and they want the buzz.” Page Six adds that NBC News chairman Andy Lack has been overheard telling fellow journalists that the interview will air. And it just shows just how bold they are, that they clearly used actors.” Families of the Sandy Hook victims have been pressuring NBC to pull the interview, and Page Six reports today that the network has been holding serious crisis situation meetings about how to take on the backlash.”
