Megyn Kelly’s Hit Piece on Alex Jones

Here are some random points/thoughts after watching Megyn Kelly’s hit piece on Alex Jones and InfoWars tonight, and being a frequent viewer/listener of InfoWars in the past:

  • It was a hit piece. Alex Jones released a recording of the phone call between him and Kelly in which she promised she was doing a story about him the person, and not going run a negative piece on him. She lied.
  • Jones brings on a lot of this himself. He is the king of click bait. Click bait is running a sensational headline to get someone to read the story, or watch the video. Many times the headline was false or greatly exaggerated from the actual text or video.
  • Alex Jones needs to keep his shirt on.
  • I saw pictures online of InfoWars reporter David Knight and Megyn Kelly talking to each other. Knight’s interview was not aired. Knight, in my opinion, is a top-notch reporter and analyst. Showing him on Kelly’s show would not fit her narrative.
  • Megyn Kelly actually looked stressed and tired. Maybe she actually took heat for running this story, and it wasn’t all hype before hand.
  • This was also a hit piece on Donald Trump by making it seem like InfoWars is his main source of the news, and that he is a close friend of Jones.
  • I don’t remember mainstream media running stories about Obama’s associations with radical communists and the threats that that involved.
  • Kelly did not ask for examples of why Jones doubts the official stories of Sandy Hook or 9/11.
  • The interview was like a witch trial. Kelly asked and answered the questions for Jones.
  • NBC & Megyn Kelly want you to believe that any opinion other that what the mainstream media wants you to have leads to violence, is dangerous, and is, of course, racist. The only thoughts or opinions you should have, are the thoughts and opinions they want you to have.
  • Regardless of what you think of Alex Jones, the real purpose of NBC’s story was the demonization of free speech on on the internet. Tom Brokaw’s comments at the end were setting the stage for internet regulation.
