CT NBC Affiliate Decides Not To Air Kelly-Jones Interview
The only NBC television station in Connecticut will not air “Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly’’ this weekend, to protest her interview with Alex Jones, who infuriated victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre by claiming the atrocity never happened.
In a memo to the staff at New Britain’s WVIT, obtained by The NYPost, station general manager Susan Tully said the “wounds of that day,’’ when a madman with a rifle murdered 20 first graders and 6 adults “have yet to heal.’’
The network will instead air a special which will include parents of the Sandy Hook victims and Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy. The special will discuss how to “affect change around violence and mental illness,” the memo said.
Jones, who hosts an Internet radio show, bizarrely claims the parents of the victims could be actors hired to give credence to a government conspiracy to take away people’s guns
Kelly has said that she finds Jones’ arguments “as personally revolting, as every other rational person does.’’
