Alex Jones is damaging NBC News in more ways than one.
The Infowars founder conducted an interview with former anti-Trump Fox News host Megyn Kelly for NBC News, which she recently joined. In January, it was reported that Tucker Carlson was up 95 percent in the Fox 9 pm timeslot from where Kelly was the previous year (during the election).
Kelly is now under fire from the Establishment and NBC News is losing money. J.P. Morgan Chase pulled all of its ads off NBC News properties until after the interview, as controversy rages about Kelly giving a platform to Jones, who has questioned official details of the Sandy Hook shooting.
Jones claimed on his show Monday that he did the interview in order to infiltrate the mainstream media and get a better read on how they think. Whether intentional or not on Jones’ part, his presence on the network is hurting Kelly’s brand among her establishment audience and at her employer.
“Megyn Kelly lied to me several weeks before she came here,” Jones said on his program Monday night. “And she said that the interview was not going to be about Sandy Hook, and the mass shooting there, and that it was not going to be about Pizzagate or these other issues that the media always obsesses on and misrepresents what I’ve said and what I’ve done. She said, oh we might mention those but really it’s just a profile on you, and I said no it’s not. Because all MSM does is hammer on that continually. It doesn’t affect my listeners. They know you’re liars.”
“I don’t need MSM. I don’t need their quote validation or their attacks or any of it. But I decided to do the Megyn Kelly interview because I wanted to get the anatomy of a true psy-op, and of course I taped my conversations with her and I taped the interview,” Jones said, holding up his cell phone. “That’s the anatomy of propaganda. I wanted to go inside and see what she would do.”
“Off air, she’s like, oh yeah we fake locations all the time,” Jones said, referring to television news industry people.
CNN was recently caught on camera appearing to stage a protest by Muslims criticizing terrorism, though the network claimed that it was merely helping with staging for existing protesters.
Jones affirmed on his show Monday that he thinks the Sandy Hook shooting “probably happened.” The shooting has been used by anti-gun Democrats to push their existing “gun control” agenda.
Jones wants his segment on NBC to remain unaired.
