NBC: Don't Air Megyn Kelly's Interview With Alex Jones!
Far-right, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has spent years trying to convince people that the horrific shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School was a hoax staged to influence gun control laws. Now, NBC plans to give Jones and his dangerous ideas a platform by airing a one-on-one, sit-down interview with Megyn Kelly scheduled for this Sunday.Sign PetitionSign Petition
Please join in asking NBC to rethink this irresponsible decision and cancel the interview!
Both NBC and Megyn Kelly have defended their decision to conduct and air the Jones interview. Kelly said that it’s her job to “shine a light” on important media figures, citing the fact that President Trump is a fan of Jones’ show Infowars and the fact that Infowars now has White House press credentials as justification for the interview.
There is nothing wrong with NBC “shining a light” on Alex Jones and Infowars, but it should not give him a full platform to spew dangerous lies and conspiracy theories. The controversies Jones stirs up have real consequences for real people. As a result of his Sandy Hook conspiracy, so-called “Sandy Hook truthers” have harassed the parents of victims, accusing them of lying.
Alex Jones spreads dangerous lies. NBC should not give him a voice. Please sign this petition demanding that NBC cancel interview!
