“You alone will be the jury of what’s fake news.”
The internet has been blowing up over the Megyn Kelly and Alex Jones interview. Mainly because most people would have never seen it coming. I know I sure didn’t!
Kelly, former Fox News anchor, seemed to have lost her way off the beaten path. After being in conservative news for years, she derailed during the recent election and turned against the Republican candidate, President Donald Trump.
Kelly came out and said that she wanted to interview Alex Jones. Jones is also conservative but he is generally very alt right. He is fun to listen to but his stories are often built up dramatically.
So what could Kelly possibly want to interview him about? Sandy Hook Elementary. The school whose name has become a household name after the alleged shooting. Like many people, Jones is skeptical about it, and that’s exactly what Kelly was banking on.
A source told us, “NBC was scrambling to find a way out of this mess without having to back down and cancel Sunday’s episode of Megyn’s show. Megyn and her producers made numerous calls to the Sandy Hook families this week to ask them to appear on the show. Some refused because they didn’t think appearing on her show would do enough to counter Alex Jones’ venom.”
Another source added, “Everyone on the show believes it’s vitally important that the piece conveys the immense pain that Jones has caused the Sandy Hook families.” The source added it was normal to be editing right up until airtime.
However, after the interview, not everything was released. Now Jones has released the audio of the interview that he secretly recorded, in case Kelly tried a stunt like this to make him look bad.
Jones said, “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.”
“God, she was like, ‘I want to get steaks with you, I’m obsessed with you, oh my God,’ wiggling around in her seat. It was all crap,” he explained. “I knew it was all a lie. I said Sandy Hook happened, and she wouldn’t even put it in the promo pieces. So we’re going to release, oh yea, we’re going to release the pre-interview. And then when they put their fraud out on Sunday — which I’ve asked them not to air because they’re misrepresenting who I am and saying I’m as bad as Saddam Hussein, or Jeffrey Dahmer, or Charles Manson — we’ve got the whole interviews here…We’ve got it all…It’s all going to come out.”
You can hear Kelly say, “All I can do is give you my word and I don’t double-cross.” Well, we now know her word is worth Jack!
