Connecticut's NBC affiliate won't air Alex Jones interview

Earlier in the week, a group founded by the parents of Sandy Hook Elementary School victims has dropped Kelly as an event host due to the interview. The interview is set to air Sunday. Demands from supporters like you convinced them to do the right thing - but we have to keep the pressure up to stop this risky interview completely before it airs tomorrow nation-wide. The memo says the executives "considered the deep emotions from the wounds of that day that have yet to heal". Instead, Connecticut viewers will be able to watch online or watch a report on the interview at 11pm ET Sunday.

Jones, a radio host, has alleged the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, was a hoax, upsetting the victims' families, and Connecticut's NBC affiliate said Friday it's not going to air Kelly's report on him. "It is our hope that Megyn and NBC reconsider and not broadcast this interview".

When those factors are not there, you pay the price and it's the team's approach that has been the missing ingredient", he added. Wicketkeeper Mangaliso Mosehle, bowler Dane Paterson, and opening batsmen JJ Smuts made their global debuts in that series.

Some media industry observers have expressed uncertainty, in general, as to whether Megyn Kelly will thrive in the new time slots - which includes a Monday through Friday 9 a.m. program - and wonder, in particular, if her talents will seamlessly transform to more lifestyle- and celebrity-driven content. Kelly was also subject to some degree of criticism for the way she handled a recent interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin. I find Alex Jones's suggestion that Sandy Hook was "a hoax" as personally revolting as every other rational person does.

"Kelly's interview implicitly endorses the notion that Mr. Jones" lies are actually "claims' that are worthy of serious debate, and in doing so it exponentially enhances the suffering and distress of our clients", lawyers representing 12 people who lost loved ones in the 2012 shooting Josh Koskoff and Katie Mesner-Hage wrote the network, via A.P. In the recordings, Kelly can be heard saying "My goal is for your listeners and the left - you know, who will be watching some on NBC - to say, 'Wow, that's really interesting, '".
