|Alex Jones may have sunk Megyn Kelly's ship.|
Pressure for NBC to drop the interview was ignored. With the measly 3.5 viewers watching, "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly" came in last place among the four major networks covering the 7pm spot.
That means a rerun of America's Funniest Home Videos, Bob's Burgers/The Simpsons, and a new episode of 60 Minutes beats Megyn Kelly.
Jones who is the founder of InfoWars and PrisonPlanet has a cult following among the kookspiracy right. Jones claims that 9/11 was an inside job. Jones believes that the mass shootings that happened under then President Barack Obama were false flag operations.
He riled up the families of Sandy Hook by promoting kookspiracies about "crisis actors" and the government creating "staged" incidents to take away firearms.
Jones was also involved in the birther kookspiracy. He was instrumental in getting Donald J. Trump elected as leader of this god awful country.
Connecticut NBC affiliates pulled the show.
Also advertising was pulled because of it.
"We listened intently to Sandy Hook parents [and] considered the deep emotions from the wounds of that day that have yet to heal," said NBC Connecticut. The station ran George to the Rescue, a show created by George Oliphant who does home makeovers.
Kelly continues to promote a conservative propaganda. Even though she was key to ousting the late Roger Ailes from Fox News, her history on that network should have made NBC nervous.
Jones also made it known that he hated the interview. He released portions of a phone call between the two and threatened to leak out an embarrassing conversation. He said that Kelly promised the interview wouldn't be contentious.
Kelly's role on NBC cost Tamron Hall her job.
Tamron Hall decided to not renew her contract after she learned Kelly was taking the 9am spot of Today in which she and Al Roker hosted. Hall is one of the very few professional Black journalists who had a show.
Here's clips of the interview.
