Not even Alex Jones wants his interview with Megyn Kelly to be broadcast

J. P. Morgan’s chief marketing officer, Kristin Lemkau, tweeted on Monday that “as an advertiser, I’m repulsed that @megynkelly would give a second of airtime to someone who says Sandy Hook and Aurora are hoaxes. Why?”

Jones also took the opportunity to denounce Kelly during his broadcast on Monday.

“Megyn Kelly lied to me several weeks before she came here. And she said that the interview was not gonna be about Sandy Hook and the mass shooting there,” Jones said. “And it was not gonna be about Pizzagate and these other issues that the media always obsesses on and misrepresents what I’ve said and what I’ve done.”

Jones then says that, although he knew the interview with Kelly would be unfair to him, he went ahead with it anyway because he “wanted to get the anatomy of a true psy-op.” He then accused Kelly’s interview of being “propaganda” because she interrogated him about his views on the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting and other issues, arguing that they “clip and misrepresent” his positions. In Jones’ telling, Kelly’s goal is to “destroy independent media.”

The right-wing pundit then proclaimed that he doesn’t want the Kelly interview to air on Father’s Day, arguing that part of their goal is to “make fathers look bad” by disparaging him.
