NBC Responds to Alex Jones Releasing His Own Recordings of Megyn Kelly’s Interview

The several forms of controversy around Megyn Kelly’s interview with InfoWars’s Alex Jones, which airs on this weekend’s “Sunday Night” on NBC, continues to grow.

Now, with Jones releasing clips of his pre-interview phone calls with Kelly and pledging to post the unedited sit-down interview, NBC has commented on the situation.

NBC released the following statement:

“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.”

Whether Jones will release his recording of the interview before Sunday, use it to contextualize answers he feels were unfairly edited after it airs, or both, is not entirely clear. He has reference to doing both since he announced that he was going to do this.

While rare, something like this happening is not unprecedented.

World Wrestling Entertainment has routinely done this during interviews with chairman Vince McMahon and some of its top stars. Sometimes, if it was felt the finished product was unfair, WWE’s footage was released online.

Most famously, in 2007, a CNN documentary on drugs in pro wrestling included a comment by John Cena that was edited to make it look as if Cena was saying he had used steroids, but nobody could ever catch him. WWE released the relevant excerpt of its recording of the interview, which resulted in CNN re-editing replays of the show.
