Newtown parent won't view NBC interview of Alex Jones

Kelly presses 'Infowars' host Jones on Sandy Hook denial Boycotting Alex Jones Interview is Right PR Advice

Her debut earlier this month, featuring an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin, drew 6.2 million viewers.

On Father's Day evening, ABC's repeat episode of "America's Funniest Home Videos" (AFHV) outperformed NBC's "Megyn Kelly", the subject of a firestorm of controversy due to interview subject Alex Jones, Entertainment Weekly reported Monday.

Despite high-rated U.S. Open golf coverage this week on Fox, "Sunday Night" finishes within 0.1 of a point of last week in adults 18-49 (0.5 vs. 0.6) and adults 25-54 (0.7 vs. 0.8) and retains 98% in total viewers (3.527 million vs. 3.608 million).

Last week, Jones leaked an audio recording of what he said was a phone conversation with Kelly, heard promising she would not portray him as "some kind of boogeyman". Then you would have missed Keith Morrison's freakish travelogue of New Zealand.

During the interview, Jones never gave a direct answer when Kelly pressed him to admit he was wrong in his claim about the shootings. Relatives of some of the victims also spoke in the Sunday segment on NBC.

NBC News and MSNBC Chairman Andrew Lack was quoted recently in Variety as saying Kelly's shows will take some time to catch on with viewers.

As for Kelly, Jones is just a despicable mad man. But who are the Sandy Hook families that they feel they have the right to restrict what any media outlet chooses to air?

"I will sit there on the air and look at every position and play devil's advocate", he said.

But even a masterclass in dress-down interviews wouldn't undo the damage already done by NBC News and Kelly.

She then was a key figure in the downfall of former Fox News chief Roger Ailes, telling in-house investigators of inappropriate conduct by Ailes that supported Gretchen Carlson and other women who had made similar accusations.

A parent of one of the children killed in the 2012 CT school shootings says she won't view the Megyn Kelly interview of conspiracy theorist Alex Jones that aired Sunday on NBC.
