Advertisers already are dropping Megyn Kelly

Megyn Kelly couldn't beat a "60 Minutes" rerun in the debut of her newsmagazine despite her exclusive interview with Vladimir Putin. He owned her.

Now an advertiser is pulling out because she interviewed Alex Jones for her upcoming episode. In fact, because of the interview, that advertiser is pulling out of all NBC ads, including those online.

From the Hollywood Reporter:
J.P. Morgan Chase has pulled its advertisements from NBC News in light of Megyn Kelly's upcoming interview with Infowars host Alex Jones, the Wall Street Journal reports. The company has decided to remove all of its TV and digital ads from all programming on the network until after the June 18 show airs, according to WSJ.
Megyn Kelly has defended her decision to feature Jones on her NBC newsmagazine despite taking heat Monday from families of Sandy Hook shooting victims and others, saying it's her job to "shine a light" on newsmakers.
Critics argue that NBC's platform legitimizes the views of a man who, among other conspiracy theories, has suggested that the killing of 26 people at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012 was a hoax. The network released a brief portion of the interview, which is scheduled to air on Sunday.
Kelly is not a very good interviewer.

She keeps swinging for these fences, and keeps striking out. I guess going up against "60 Minutes" forces you to do that.

But Alex Jones?

I do not find the man interesting.

The Sandy Hook nonsense is the deal breaker.

This shows her lack of judgment. She is too craven for ratings to be watchable.

She feuded with Trump, didn't she?

What do I say about feuds with Trump? They always backfire. Ask Rosie O'Donnell.

UPDATE from AP:
An anti-gun violence organization founded by parents of children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School has dumped Megyn Kelly as host of an event in Washington this week because of her plans to broadcast an interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. Kelly said Tuesday that she understands and respects the decision by Sandy Hook Promise to disinvite her as host of its Wednesday gala, but is disappointed. She said reporting on Jones’ falsehoods is what journalists are supposed to do. 




On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback

Autographed copies of both books are available by writing me at DonSurber@GMail.com

  2. In Alex Jones defense, most of his theories are not nearly as whacko as those taught to students at most major universities, or those put forth by the enimedia.
    No, I don't buy the Sandy Hook Alternate theory.
    No, I don't buy the 9-11-01 alternate theories.
    No, I don't buy the glowbull whoring theories.
    No, I don't buy the evolution lies.
    No, I don't buy the Russian ties to President Trump, although ties to mad dumb secretary HiLlARy are proven to my satisfaction.
    See? Info Wars is main stream.

  3. Her Fox News viewers were never going to follow her to the enemy camp. Not in any numbers.

    NBC viewers were never going to embrace her because she came from hated Fox.

    She had a good thing going with Fox. Shoulda stayed put.

    But then again, money talks.

  4. I don't watch him, but I understand that he got a lot of things right about the last election where others didn't. Also Me-again may have just wanted to be close to some super male vitality.

  5. I hope Ms. Kelly has invested wisely. Her future income prospects aren't looking so good. - Elric

  6. As my late wife used to say when someone messed up BIG TIME (jokingly, only with her friends), it's time to don the ceremonial robes and get out the knife.

  7. I knew she was going to flame out running on all that ego-driven fuel, I just did not think it would be before her second show. That's quick.

    Next stop CNN. Apparently they don't care how stupid their BROADcasters are.

  8. Well, that's a real quick call from Grace. Alex Jones isn't as whack as a leftist, true, but he's whack enough to cause pause. As for Kelly.....well, she's old tuna that's been left out in the sun. Can you imagine the consternation at NBC? They've invested some serious money in that woman. Well, this tragedy is just getting started. I'm expecting a whole Greek chorus momentarily.

    I remember her from years ago....she wasn't like this now. Can NBC claw some money back? I'm a deplorable redneck, it's true...but I feel pity for the folks who have to deal with this festering situation.

    1. "Fall." As a sidenote...the question has been raised...who, exactly is her audience? Sandy Hook? Really? That is vile. Leftist thought patterns, true....but come on now....using dead children as a prop? Some folks take serious offense at such things. When duels were legal, such tactics were paid for in blood.
