Things are heating up… Alex Jones Leaks Controversial Interview With Megyn Kelly
Megyn Kelly’s interview with controversial InfoWars host Alex Jones to be aired Sunday night, but Jones has been calling on Kelly to cancel the airing of the interview. Kelly, Jones claims, misrepresented his views during the interview.
“They took me out of context,” Jones said.
Jones vowed to leak his own recordings of the interview, and it looks like he’s really doing it. The 30-minute audio released appears to feature segments of Jones’ pre-interview with Kelly. In it, Kelly promises Jones she wasn’t interested in doing a hit piece.
In the recording of the call, Jones does state, of the Sandy Hook killings, “In hindsight I think it probably did happen,” and at another point he says, “I have had debates where I showed both sides. I believe people died there.”
Jones then cuts in footage of the promo released by NBC News in which Kelly probes him about his claims that the massacre was fake, and he replies by talking about the casualties of America’s foreign wars, and Kelly tells him he is “dodging” the question.
Jones on Thursday night promised to release a full unedited series of recordings of the NBC interview, which he says ran from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., saying he secretly recorded the controversial sit-down because he “knew it was all crap,” and that he would be misrepresented.
“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,” Jones said.
“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,” Jones continued.
“I knew it was all a lie. I said, ‘Sandy Hook happened,’ and she wouldn’t even put it in the promo pieces,” Jones said. “So we’re going to release, oh yeah, 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 interview here… We’ve got it all… It’s all going to come out.”
“In the past NBC could manipulate and lie, they were the gods,” Jones added. “Megyn Kelly waltzed in here and told me she was going to do a softball interview with Alex Jones… she did the opposite of what she said. We were recording the whole time. These tyrants haven’t figured it out yet, that information warfare is a two-way street.”
Statement to the The Daily Beast by NBC:
Early Friday, an NBC News spokesperson told The Daily Beast: “Despite Alex Jones’ efforts to distract from and ultimately prevent the airing of our report, we remain committed to giving viewers context and insight into a controversial and polarizing figure, how he relates to the president of the United States and influences others, and to getting this serious story right. Tune in Sunday.”
Kelly promised Jones that she would not misrepresent the interview, which he seems to believe she broke.
