Megyn Kelly has received a lot of hate for trying to interview infowars anchor Alex Jones. Alex Jones is a conspiracy theorist who believes that the Sandy Hook shooting was staged. As a result, many people were upset that Kelly is giving Jones a platform. She was even fired from hosting a charity event, and she lost JP Morgan as a sponsor.
Alex Jones angry at Megyn Kelly for a whole different reason. He is accusing her of deceptively editing the interview in an attempt to make him look bad. As a result, he released hidden audio that he took of her during the interview.
In order to justify the interview Megyn Kelly talked about how repulsive Jones’ ideas are, and that she is attempting to shine a light on him. However, Jones’ audio shows her giving him a lot of compliments and assurances that this will not be a hit piece against him.
“The reason you are interesting me to be is because I followed your custody case and I think you had a very good point about the way the media was covering it,” said Kelly in the hidden audio.
“The comments I heard from you during the course of that trial and the plea to the media to be respectful to you and your kids just reminded me you’re just like anybody. You’re a dad. You go through the same things we go through,” said Kelly. “It’s not going to be some ‘gotcha’ hit piece. I promise you that. You’ll be fine with it. I’m not looking to portray you as some kind of boogeyman,” she said. For more information check out the video below.
