NBC radio station refuses to play Megyn Kelly's Alex Jones interview

"Because those wounds are understandably still so raw, we have decided not to air this week's episode of Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly". Kelly has drawn a ton of criticism for even interviewing him, but now at least it seems one station has found a solution.

Already, 138,988 supporters have flooded NBC with demands to pull this interview and stop promoting Jones' hateful lies - but to get other stations to follow suit, we need you to sign our petition immediately.

Megyn Kelly's new NBC has gained more backlash than expected after news of Megyn interviewing Alex Jones on Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly began to go viral when the below interview snippet was released, as reported by the Inquisitr.

The interview with Jones, scheduled to air on Sunday, has prompted outrage, especially in CT, where 20 children and six adults were killed by a deranged gunman at the elementary school in Newtown.

Sandy Hook Promise, an anti-gun violence organization, disinvited Kelly from its gala, which she was scheduled to host.

In response, Kelly released a statement, saying, "I understand and respect the decision of the event organizers but I am of course disappointed that I won't be there to support them".

Kelly has called Jones' claims "personally revolting", but she said she believes there's a value in exposing what he says to the American people. "Our goal in sitting down with him was to shine a light - as journalists are supposed to do - on this influential figure, and yes - to discuss the considerable falsehoods he as promoted with new impunity".

"It's not going to be some gotcha hit piece, I can promise you that", Kelly is heard saying to Jones.

Jones said that he was considering the fact that today is Father's Day, and how "parents should never have to bury their own children". The decision to offer Jones a wider platform via Megyn's interview has caused one Connecticut NBC network TV station to not air the interview.

Kelly, who gained prominence as an anchor at Fox News, joined NBC at the beginning of this year.
