Megyn Kelly interview with Alex Jones gets praise on social media
NBC News’s Megyn Kelly drew mixed reaction on social media for her interview with Infowars’s Alex Jones.
Kelly started her Sunday night show acknowledging the controversy surrounding her previously taped interview with Jones, noting that “some thought we shouldn’t broadcast this interview” with the man who has said the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting is a hoax.
#Megyn Kelly did more to expose the real Alex Jones and than anyone else on TV. Solid journalism.

Watching @megynkelly interview with Alex Jones, I’m even more convinced that her piece wasn’t just ok to do, but important journalism.

If you’re unfamiliar with Alex Jones, and are watching this Megyn Kelly report, hard to imagine you walk away believing anything he says.

In the end, Kelly delivers piece which gets positive reviews. But was it worth it? Has week of negative stories already done its damage?

So I watched the Megyn Kelly piece on Alex Jones. You could see the producers cutting and re-cutting it to meet various points of objection.

Alex is not doing well on Megyn Kelly. Certainly not the way it’s edited. He’s sweating and bumbling and stammering.
