Three days ago we reported on Megyn Kelly unceremoniously being dumped by the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation as host of that organization’s fund-raising gala next month. Kelly was shown the door as a result of a sit-down interview she’d granted InfoWars conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, a man who is on record for his belief that the 2012 attack on the school was a hoax. Her employer NBC News plans to air the interview this weekend on Father’s Day – which was a bridge too far for the Foundation and increasingly for NBC’s advertisers.
Later the same day things got worse for Kelly when Mr. Jones came public with accusations she was a liar who had in essence set him up by saying one thing (prior to their interview) then doing another once the cameras were rolling.
Read the entire report here, but at that time Jones said, “Megyn Kelly lied to me several weeks before she came here. And she said that the interview was not gonna be about Sandy Hook and the mass shooting there,” Jones said. “And it was not gonna be about Pizzagate and these other issues that the media always obsesses on and misrepresents what I’ve said and what I’ve done.”
And now the next chapter in the saga.
Not content to leave control in Kelly and NBC’s hands, Jones has launched a preemptive strike and gone public with audio (also known as “leaking”) of himself and Kelly. Jones has scooped NBC on his own interview and posted the audio on his website, Infowars:
“Alex Jones has released recordings made during a pre-interview between himself and Megyn Kelly to set the record straight after the release of the highly edited promo for the NBC host’s upcoming hit piece.Stay tuned to Infowars.com for more updates.”
Jones then decided to add a little insult to the injury, pour some lemon juice in it and do some self-congratulatory back-patting at the same time by adding this video to the collection:

Its looking pretty clear that Kelly and Jones won’t be exchanging Christmas cards this year.
