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.”
