Alex Jones’ Ex-Wife Threatened to Trash Megyn Kelly if She Wasn’t Included in Interview With InfoWars Host

Alex Jones’ ex-wife allegedly threatened to trash Megyn Kelly in an op-ed if she wasn’t included in her interview with the controversial InfoWars host.

Kelly Jones reportedly approached NBC producers this week ahead of the highly anticipated interview with her ex-husband, which is due to air this Sunday, and demanded she be included, Mediate reports.

An NBC source says it is clear Ms Jones was planning to attack her ex, after their recent divorce and bitter child custody battle.

The producers of Megyn Kelly’s show reportedly told Ms Jones that it was too late to include her in the interview, as the segment had already been shot.

At that point, Ms Jones apparently threatened to publish a scathing op-ed, trashing both Kelly and her ex-husband. She had reportedly sent the op-ed to NBC for them to view.

The decision whether or not to include Ms Jones in an additional piece was left to Kelly who decided to omit her.

She reportedly told NBC execs that she feared giving Ms Jones air time would amount to nothing more than a ‘hit piece.’

‘I said I wasn’t going to do a hit piece. I’m not going to a hit piece,’ she told them, according to Mediate.

The revelation came just days after Alex Jones released the ‘secret audio’ he recorded of Kelly over the course of 14 hours last week, when the NBC host interviewed the radio personality and conspiracy theorist in his Texas studio.

The 30-minute recording went up on Jones’ YouTube page early Friday, after he spent the better part of Thursday talking up the astonishing and shocking things that the NBC host said to him when the cameras were off.

A quick listen however proved that the tape is anything but damning, featuring audio of Kelly from just a single phone conversation that lasts less than a minute.

The exchange also gives the appearance that the NBC host and conspiracy theorist had a very cordial and professional relationship, which while admittedly shocking is not the revelation which Jones and the InfoWars staff seemed to be teasing earlier in the week.

An NBC News spokesperson said in a statement on Friday: ‘Despite Alex Jones’ efforts to distract from and ultimately prevent the airing of our report, we remain committed to giving viewers context and insight into a controversial and polarizing figure, how he relates to the president of the United States and influences others, and to getting this serious story right.’

However, the furor over the upcoming interview does appear to have sent NBC execs into a panic over the negative publicity.

They reportedly spent the whole of Monday in crisis meetings to work out how to handle the backlash from parents angry that Kelly has given a platform for Jones’ ludicrous claims – including that the Sandy Hook shootings were faked.

‘It’s a s**t show,’ a source told Page Six. ‘No one wants to withstand a whole week of criticism over this. There are a number of people who want to pull the interview.’

Kelly’s woes began when she tweeted a clip of the interview in which she presses Jones about his claims that Sandy Hook was a ‘false flag’ government operation.

The mother of one of the children killed in the 2012 shooting took Kelly to task, asking why she was giving publicity to Jones; Chelsea Clinton soon joined in.

And then JP Morgan Chase dropped its advertising from all NBC shows until after the interview’s proposed airing date, on Father’s Day, and things got serious, Page Six said.

Kelly responded to the statement saying she did ‘understand and respect’ the decision but that she was ‘disappointed’.

‘I find Alex Jones’s suggestion that Sandy Hook was “a hoax” as personally revolting as every other rational person does,’ she said.

‘It left me, and many other Americans, asking the very question that prompted this interview: how does Jones, who traffics in these outrageous conspiracy theories, have the respect of the president of the United States and a growing audience of millions?

‘President Trump, by praising and citing him, appearing on his show, and giving him White House press credentials, has helped elevate Jones, to the alarm of many.

‘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 has promoted with near impunity.’

Jones, who hosts the online ‘news’ site InfoWars, had initially said that the children killed at Sandy Hook were slain by government agents who wanted to restrict gun laws.

He then modified that claim to say the Sandy Hook shootings never happened and that the dead children were actors.

On Monday, he changed that stance yet again, telling InfoWars’ listeners that he now believes Sandy Hook did happen, and that children died there.

He claimed that his remarks to that effect had been edited from the promotional clip, and added: ‘I’m tired of being misrepresented.’

After Kelly shared the two-minute clip of her and Jones, in which she challenges him about the claims, then slaps him down twice for evading the question, bereaved mom Nelba Marquez-Greene took her to task.

Marquez-Greene, who lost her six-year-old daughter Ana in the shooting, posted a school photo of her deceased daughter.

‘Here you go @MegynKelly – her name is Ana Grace Márquez-Greene. Say her name- stare at this & tell me it’s worth it,’ she wrote.

She also posted a message she had been sent by one of those taken in by Jones’ claim, who asked her: ‘Did Ana really die? Everyone knows SandyHook is SandyHoax. Did you sell her into a Child-trafficking ring?’

That the government faked deaths at ‘Sandy Hook’ isn’t the only absurd conspiracy Jones has come up with.

In 2012, in the wake of the Aurora cinema massacre that saw 12 killed and 70 injured when a gunman opened fire during a screening of The Dark Knight, Jones claimed it was a ‘false flag’.

‘If you look at the full spectrum of information unfolding right now, 100 per cent chance that the mass murder committed in the suburb of Denver, Colorado, right next to Littleton and Columbine was a false flag mind control event.’

He even blamed President Obama for being behind a series of deadly tornadoes in Oklahoma back in 2013 that claimed the lives of over 30 people.
