VIA: Infowars host Alex Jones is taking new measures to set things straight about his interview with NBC News’ Megyn Kelly, which is set to air Sunday.
On Thursday night, Jones leaked audio of what he says was his private, pre-interview conversation with Kelly online to clarify what he referred to as “misrepresenting” him in the official interview.
“I’ve never done this in 22 years, I’ve never recorded another journalist,” Jones said in a video posted to Twitter, teasing the leak. “I’ve never done this, but I knew that it was a fraud, that it was a lie.”
In the audio, Kelly is heard saying, “This is not going to be a contentious, sort of ‘gotcha’ exchange.” Then in a preview of the televised footage, Jones is seen talking with Kelly about the 2012 Newtown, Conn., shooting, with Jones calling Kelly “an anti-gunner.”
The host also called out the “mainstream media,” including The Hollywood Reporter, for its recent coverage of his sit-down with Kelly. Jones claimed that his words were taken out of context and heavily edited in promo clips for the interview. “I got it all on tape, sweetheart,” he said during Thursday’s Infowars show. “I did it to protect myself so I can show what she really did.”
“What are they going to do, when I’ve got the tapes of what really happened?” Jones added, saying that Kelly acted like she was “obsessed with him.” “It was worse than in college in a topless bar when women try to get you to pay for a dance.” Continue reading
A re-air of CBS’s 60 Minutes more than doubled the viewership of NBC’s Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly in head-to-head competition.
60 Minutes, which was Sunday’s most-watched show, drew 7.9 million viewers while the second episode of Kelly’s show, which included an interview with Erin Andrews, averaged 3.6 million, down -42 percent from its debut episode a week earlier.
In the A25-54 news demo Kelly’s show averaged a 0.8 rating (down -33 percent from last week’s 1.2), while 60 Minutes averaged a 1.1 rating. Kelly’s show improved the 7 p.m. ET timeslot for NBC by +13 percent in the demo, vs. the network’s season-to-date average for the hour (excluding sports and awards shows).
Megyn Kelly has officially jumped ship, leaving Fox News to join NBC News, NBC announced Tuesday.
Kelly, 46, spend 12 years at Fox News, most recently as the host of The Kelly Files, but has now accepted an offer to triple her duties at NBC News, hosting an hour-long daytime news show Monday through Friday, a Sunday night news show, and participate in major event coverage.
The new schedule is reportedly appealing to Kelly in part because, with a daytime show, she will have more time to spend with her children and husband. Kelly was Fox News’ second-most watched host after Bill O’Reilly and her departure will leave a hole in the network’s prime-time lineup just months after chairman Roger Ailes was ousted following sexual harassment allegations.
