Need more proof that President Donald Trump was right, and that Megyn Kelly is a loser? Well here you go.
Making tsunami-sized waves across the media is Megyn Kelly’s forthcoming sit-down interview with fringe radio personality Alex Jones, whose specialty is politically motivated conspiracy theories — such as Hillary Clinton running a child sex-trafficking ring out of a pizza parlor, Barack Obama creating ISIS, and the creeping fungus we should all beware that’s killing Americans.
But it’s his appearance with Kelly this Sunday on NBC that has kickstarted a new round of outrage, and in a time when you’d think we’d be all tapped out.
Teasers for the show suggest Jones is slated to once again argue that the heartbreaking 2012 massacre of 20 children and six adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School was a hoax staged by gun-control advocates to further their cause. Ads for the show picture the stout Jones seated in front of a waving American flag, the logo for his Infowars.com show behind him.
The nonprofit Sandy Hook Promise foundation disinvited Kelly as host of its annual gala Wednesday in Washington. #ShameOnNBC began trending.
Photos of the children who were slain by a lone gunman were posted next to comments of grief and outrage aimed at Kelly.
It’s doubtful that this is the sort of attention the former Fox News host was looking for while staking her claim in the mainstream media as a Barbara Walters-type interview journalist; the news personality who banks her reputation on landing those hard-to-get, exclusive “event” interviews.
Then why, oh why, make the misguided choice of inviting a political propagandist whose rantings are regularly available on radio, YouTube and any dark den of far-right Internet conspiracy?
Because Kelly, and apparently NBC, high off ratings from her event-less Vladimir Putin interview last week, lost all news judgment.
This isn’t Walters with the Menendez brothers or Anwar Sadat. It’s a former Fox News host, with a fake news peddler who is using the murder of children to make a pro-gun argument.
