Alex Jones is calling for the airing of his interview with Megyn Kelly to be cancelled, saying on his show “Info Wars” that he has been misrepresented. The interview is set to air Sunday, June 18, on NBC’s “Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly,” and has spurred a flurry of backlash online after a preview for the interview aired Sunday night.
In the 97-second preview, Jones calls the 9/11 attacks an “inside job” and questions the legitimacy of the Sandy Hook shootings. “30 years ago, they began creating animal-human hybrids. Isn’t that the big story Megyn Kelly should be doing?” he says in the teaser.
In a live stream on Monday afternoon, Jones said that Kelly lied to him, and promised that the interview would not be about Sandy Hook or other conspiracies. “Megyn Kelly lied to me several weeks before she came here,” he said. “She said that the interview was not going to be about Sandy Hook and the mass shooting there, and it was not going to be about Pizzagate and these other issues that the media always obsesses on and misrepresents what I’ve said and what I’ve done.”
Jones said that he is often misrepresented, and knew that the interview wouldn’t end up being a simple profile on him as Kelly initially told him. He said he recently turned down other TV appearances like “The View.”
