NBC Affiliate Refused to Show Megyn Kelly’s Interview with Alex Jones Because of….

An NBC affiliate that covers Connecticut did not air NBC host Megyn Kelly’s Sunday night interview with Alex Jones of Infowars, who claimed the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Ct., was a hoax to promote gun control.

The Los Angeles Times cited a memo from WVIT-TV General Manager Susan Tully to her employees.

“Over the last few days, we have listened intently to Sandy Hook parents, our viewers and importantly, to you,” Tully said in the memo. “We have considered the deep emotions from the wounds of that day that have yet to heal.”

As an indication of the depth of those wounds, Sandy Hook families threatened NBC with legal action over the interview.

“Airing Ms. Kelly’s interview implicitly endorses the notion that Mr. Jones’ lies are actually ‘claims’ that are worthy of serious debate, and in doing so it exponentially enhances the suffering and distress of our clients,” said a letter to NBC from a law firm representing the families.

“NBC is not responsible for the harassment and abuse Alex Jones has cruelly visited on our clients. But, by choosing to air his interview with Ms. Kelly — at all, let alone at prime time on Father’s Day — NBC has tendered its good name and considerable influence to provide Mr. Jones with something he has never enjoyed: legitimacy,” the letter added.

“This decision may be driven by the simple urge to gain an edge in a well-publicized ratings war. But it has devastating human consequences as well,” the letter said.

One Sandy Hook mom berated Kelly in an op-ed in The Washington Post.

“Kelly’s rationale for airing the interview is to ‘shine a light‘ on conspiracy theorists. I would argue that we can shine a light on better things. We can shine a light on brave communities that have to reorganize after tragedy. We can shine a light on grief and the solutions needed to fix some of our problems. We can do better than shining a light on someone willing to make money in a way that causes harm to so many,” wrote Nelba L. Márquez-Greene, whose daughter, Ana Grace, was killed in the shooting.

“As Americans, we will always be curious and courageous in seeking truth. But when this search for truth becomes an exploitative venture to stir up controversy for ratings and financial gain, and here I’m talking about NBC, we must recognize the consequences,” she added.

NBC News Chairman Andy Lack has said the fuss over the interview won’t stop NBC from airing it.

“We kind of know when we’re doing controversial stories. That’s going to happen. It doesn’t stop us from doing controversial stories,” he said. “It’s important to get it right.”

However, the tone of the interview appeared in question after Infowars released an audio recording of a phone conversation with Kelly that portrayed Kelly as promising the following to Jones:

“It’s not going to be a contentious sort of gotcha exchange.” Kelly said, “I’ not going to portray you as some boogeyman or just any sort of gotcha moment. I just want to talk about you.”

“The reason you are interesting to me is because I followed your (parental) custody case, and I think you had a very good point about how the media was covering it and for some reason treated you and your family and what was going on as fair game when they never would have done that if you were a mainstream media figure,” Kelly said in the recording. “I saw a different side of you in that whole thing and, you know, you just became very fascinating to me.”
