Megyn Kelly interview with Alex Jones

So the former darling of the right will be interviewing this moron on Sunday night.

Splendid. Why waste air time?

Ratings, my friend ,ratings.

What I find ironic is that the militant right is embracing someone who not so long ago accused a GOP administration of the mass murder of 3000 Americans.

I'm not sure that an interview format will expose Jones as the charlatan he is, but the good news is that apparently Alex is unhappy with the outcome:

Quote:
Alex Jones is responding to the online outcry over his interview with NBC News Megyn Kelly by saying the interview should be pulled.
Back in 2006, Jones said that James B and I were writing Screw Loose Change out of the basement of the Pentagon. Of all the things that people hyperventilate about Trump over, his apparent fondness for old Leatherlungs is at the top of my list of reasons to be skeptical of Trump.

It's a sad commentary on the state of affairs in this country that we're giving that hateful wretch airtime instead of a straitjacket.

After the Trump interview hype and complete let down, i have little confidence Megyn Kelly will make the most of this interview.

I mean, there's a small chance she could shred him on air and maybe do us all a favour - but im thinking it wont be what I want it to be.

Indeed. I much preferred the BBC's method, where they went and talked to some of the people being harassed by the Sandy Hook CT nutters:

I think it's perfectly legitimate to interview Alex Jones. Air his views, talk to the families of Sandy Hook to show the damage he has caused, then rip his ass.

Then point out that he and Trump are besties.

I think Kelly wanted to do the Vaseline coated lens, soft string music, "tell us about your journey" interview. That is very dangerous.

IMHO Jones is a opportunist pure and simple. During the Bush years, he pitched his appeal to the left;during the Obama Years, he pitched his appeal to the right. But I do think that in the last eight years he sort of burned his bridges behind him as far as return swing to the left is concerned;thus he has no choice but to support Trump because the core of supporter he picked up in the Obama years are pro Trump. But I do not that Jones has kept the door open a little to turn on Trump if necessary.

Sad, but there is that little thing called the First Admendment. If Jones wants to spout off and a network wants to give him time there is really nothing that can be done about it that would not do more damage then Jones could do in a long time.

First amendment isn't in question really, is it?

Private corporations can air what they want and what they dont want.

Everything has editorial standards they apply - I think arguing that such a standard could exclude Jones isn't entering free speech threatening territory.

Jones is free to run his own network and speak as much as he wants there - and he does that.

We'd be in Brave New World/Anti-Free Speech Dystopia Land if we went ahead and said all that should be shut down and he should be jailed for what he said.

But saying its a bit of a shame that Jones is getting a platform on a major network?

Im cool with it.

THough I will say, some of my craziest "far left" friends who were already "in for crazy conspiracies", channeled more infowars in the last year or so than usual. Probably the Hillary/bankster hate was the vector for this "far left meets far right" moment.

I wouldn't count this as "the left" though, at least mainstream left. More like, "further out there than Kucinich" left.

J P Morgan (Chase) has pulled their advertising from the show.

Alex Jones is a terrible man. I wish Megynn would ask him if he is "performing" during
the interview.

https://twitter.com/i/moments/874628951796318208

I was unable to copy and paste Megyn's response to being pulled as the
host for the Sandy Hook Memorial.

She said (paraphrasing) that she wanted to expose Alex Jones and all his
conspiracies and falsehoods.

A contrarian friend on FB thought it rash that they dropped her "before even seeing the interview"

Beware the perils of equanimity, I say...

Jones did not indulge in that particular crap during the Dubya years. During the Dubya years he was one of the main supporters of the 9/11 Truth movement and got along just fine with the Truthers who were lefty.

You seemed to miss my point that Jones is an opportunist,who will swing to the left or the right depending on where he thinks the suckers ripe for the plucking are.

Or are you one of those who does not like to admit that the left is fully capable of producing wackjobs as the right?

Woulda been a nicer post without the closing question, but I digress

No, just someone with close exposure to lefty conspiracy theorists - most of them went for David Icke, and found the Jones style abrasive. Most said he was probably "disinfo".

Its more in the last year or so that I noticed the Infowars pipeline delivering more content through these sources.

Perhaps lefties in the Truther circles 2001-2009 were more open to him when he was talking about 9/11, i know one pot-smoking, LSD taking psychedelic trance DJ who introduced me to Paul Joseph Watson on the topic of the NAU.

So ya, this overlap has been there - but its more noticeable on the back of last year's election campaign, and Jones, temperementally and culturally and politically, is much more a creature of the far right.

And its that baggage that saw most of my hippie friends avoid him. So much so, I find it strange and alien to hear anyone calling Jones a "darling" of the left. Maybe my sample is skewed from being Canadian, and the fact I find that strange is MY problem. But being a close follower of the American political zeitgeist, im finding it hard to see much supporting the claim he was a "darling of the left" - alternet/salon - these places get clicks from criticizing him, not praising him.

My brother in law though? Crazy huge Infowars fan.

He was never "left" or "far left" though, more of a neutral guy whose only political leaning now is whatever Alex and Mike Adams tell him.

I would say it's more of a "What bunch of suckers can I best exploit this month" attitude.

Really, Alex? From what I have read Kelly is just portraying the Sandy Hook theory you have been pushing big time even since sandy hook happened.

Its somewhat Pathetic: Jones is trying to become more Mainstream, but the amount of absolute crap he has said in the past pulls him down...and he can't go back on it without alienating his base of supporters..

That is what I suspect also. It's not like Jones has not resorted to that tactic before.

Absolute crap is mainstream in Trumpistan. He just wants in on the racket.
