Megyn Kelly is expected to feature controversial conservative firebrand Alex Jones on her NBC newsmagazine show in the coming weeks.

Jones said on his “Infowars” online program Thursday that he was set for a one-on-one with Kelly next week. NBC News declined comment. Jones vowed to challenge Kelly about statements she made about him during her previous tenure at Fox News. Jones has drawn condemnation for provocative statements such as suggesting that the 2012 school shooting massacre in Newtown, Conn., was a hoax.

Megyn Kelly Hopes to Spark ‘Sunday Night’ for NBC

Jones said the Kelly interview marks a rare example of his agreeing to a sit-down with a mainstream media figure. He said he has turned down many other recent offers but realized that Kelly will likely have a big platform with “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly.”

“I’d be dumb if I didn’t do some of these interviews,” Jones said. 

“Sunday Night” premieres this weekend with Kelly’s interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin as its centerpiece. Kelly joined NBC News earlier this year after making a high-profile departure from Fox News.

  1. Do NOT care for Megyn Kelly ! Alex Jones is a person I enjoy listening to and brings out The Truth behind the scenes, with God’s help. Get rid of Megyn Kelly as far as I am concerned. I do not plan to watch her shows. Did tune in to hear and listen to Alex Jones !

    Jones never said it was a hoax he called it a false flag

    Alex Jones very good

    Why would she do this?

    Alex Jones isn’t a firebrand, he’s an incoherent loose cannon. It would make for a better television if you just put an ape in the studio that spent an hour throwing its faeces for Kelly to dodge. That would make more sense than Alex Jones, who will just go on and spout some unsubstantiated nonsense, and then shout over Ms. Kelly whenever she attempts to question him about his ridiculous ideas.

    Please, just book the real ape instead.

      one day jim you won’t be able to slander anymore. On this day you’ll meet the moment of truth giving. and the devil won’t be going “haha”

      • jimdroberts says:

        Ahem, think you might be a little confused regarding the definition of slander, it’s application relative to international law, and especially its enforcement, which right now you seem to think will be carried out by a fictional, supernatural entity.

        Clearly you’re as daft as a brush.

    Is this going to be recorded live to prevent directors at NBC from editing the footage to slander Jones as 60 Minutes attempted with Cernovich?

    If not, I hope Jones records every second of this and releases the full interview.

  7. John Whitworth says:

    My money’s on Alex Jones..he’ll eat her alive

  9. Ani Baner says:

    Please ask him why he said during his divorce hearing that he didnt mean what he says, it just a public act.
