JPMorgan Pulls Ads From NBC News After Megyn Kelly's "Repulsive" Alex Jones Interview

Tyler Durden's picture

While Megyn Kelly's interview with Russian President (and all around global bad guy if one were to believe the daily barrage of leftist headlines)  Vladimir Putin did not raise the ire of advertisers, it appears her interview with right-wing provocateur Alex Jones has lurched from social media firestorm to real-world dollars and cents for NBC News.

The sit-down has been promoted as a discussion about “controversies and conspiracies.”

In a video promoting the interview, Jones talks about the 9/11 attacks as an “inside job.” In the clip, Kelly also brings up Sandy Hook, saying: “When you say parents faked their children’s deaths, people get very angry.” Jones replies: “But they don’t get angry about half-a-million dead Iraqis from the sanctions.”

And now, as The Wall Street Journal reports, J.P. Morgan has asked for its local TV ads and digital ads to be removed from Kelly’s show and from all NBC news programming until after the show airs, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The company doesn’t want any of its ads to appear adjacent to any promotions for the interview, the person added.

This comes hours after Kristin Lemkau, J.P. Morgan’s chief marketing officer, questioned why Ms. Kelly would conduct the interview.

As an advertiser, I’m repulsed that @megynkelly would give a second of airtime to someone who says Sandy Hook and Aurora are hoaxes."

On his radio program Monday,  Jones said that he thinks Sandy Hook happened, or at least that children died, though there are anomalies about the event. However, he said that was edited from the NBC promotion. “I’m tired of being misrepresented,” Jones said and added that he demanded Kelly’s “hit piece” not air on Father’s Day.

WSJ reports that other NBC advertisers have stayed mum on the planned episode, at least publicly.

if i was a "sandy hook parent" and had been pimpin my child out for some conneticut banker joan benet christmas pagentry, i

mighta participated in the ritual myself.

that's IF there was any dead kids.





mutchless all the outta state/imternational gay dead peurtoricanish we sacrificed a year ago.

jeff montanye's picture

and i too look for a place to interject.  were i the deep state and felt that the zionist conspiracy of 9-11 was getting too much attention and starting to unravel, i might try to start other "conspiracy theories" about actual real world events that truly did happen.  and, going on that line, then "suspicious" things that various government officials did can be read in a different way: still suspicious but done to hook the unsuspecting into a hoax played on truthers.

in fact i know very little about sandy hook/newtown other than my sister grew up there a long time ago so i noticed it more than the other ones like aurora and the orlando gay bar, etc.  but having read this in new york magazine and seeing how eager they are to spread the parent's pain, truther debunking to other, much more likely to be true "conspiracy theories" (jfk, 9-11, gold price manipulation), i think there's a chance i'm right.

"I think there's a chance I'm right" 

Seeing as you were not there and "know very little about" it, not sure how you conclude that.  Let's be clear: if you were not there, you don't know what happened. You're viewpoint is definitively second-hand.

Not having a contextual framework for a commenter is a classic elitist strategy of shilling.

Sort of how you're attacking our pointing it out while essentially calling us fundamentalist hicks named Jethro.

I do plenty of analysis, I just do the sort people such as yourself do not really understand. You don't understand it, so you dismiss and attack it as a "belief".

Here's the thing, once you determine a person's ethnicity, their behaviors tend to follow a preset of guidelines. Certain positions and comments will always give your ethnicity away.

There's a very well laid out method for analyzing textual formats for shilling. It's actually quite analytically rigorous, but what would I know?

To you shills, I'm just a hillbilly named Jethro, nevermind that I'm not even Irish, and there are no Germans with that name or in the hills.

mayhem_korner's picture

OK, Billy-Bob.

I don't doubt your capacity for analytic rigor.  Probably read some of my work to get you there.

But to the matter at hand, Johnboy, what I take issue with is people's conviction about certain things - namely what happened at Sandy Hook - when they don't actually know.  It's self-reinforcing group-think.  There's nothing rigorous about it.

Soldier on, though.  I'll look for your shilling analysis of me in my mailbox.  Obviously that minor datum would be included in your profiling.

Did you read that before you hit save?  Is that the best you can do - a "me too" comment about something as inconsequential as the frequency with which YOU observed another's posts? 

I'm going with my gut that more insightful people than you have been kicked off of ZH.

You weren't around when we had the math captcha.  At least, not under your current handle you weren't. 

It did keep out the riff-raff, somewhat.  We had a much smarter class of riff-raff at least.  The level of discourse was an order of magnitude higher.  Many of today's more-prolific posters wouldn't have had the balls to post partisan drivel, not twice.

Flower, now you understand the intellectual level you are dealing with. Since I have been a member since they were in diapers, but somehow they never looked at any of my many posts, and Alex Jones never mentioned me, I must be part of the conspiracy (I, along with ZH itself; we have somehow hoodwinked them).

Here's their line of reasoning (pretty much all of them unfortunately):

1. I never saw it

2. I never read it on Alex Jones.

3. Therefore it does not exist and it is some kind of conspiracy.

Basically a mentally handicapped abiltiy to reason. But they can spell.

False flags always have tells.  

1) There will be operations already in the area.  2) The perpetrator story is already canned and ready to go.  3) The evidence is not allowed good forensic and legal scrutiny after the fact.  4) The Evidence is cleaned up quickly in a sweeping operation.  4) The canned narrative is echoed to then cement it into the publics consciousness.

Operations in the area are usually some sort of exercises, or actors, or a ruse of some type - to then cover for the actual event.

False flags work mainly because the human animal can be programmed.  The animal's amygdala fires some 500mS before his hippocampus, and hence any emotional  response is given a pass by the hippocampus with some sort of rationalization.  The brain tries to fit facts to quench the amygdals fear centers, and if it can't it will invent superstitous things.

The human animal also myelin sheaths information that it receives first.  This create a permanence memory that is hard to over-write.  In other words, undoing a false memory is very difficult, as the brain is now programmed.  

Echoing a canned narrative is something ((Edward Bernays)) learned early on as part of the propaganda tricksters manual.

To stop the lying media, will first require undoing Clinton's tellecommunication act, which consolidated the media into one cross directorate.

Yep. Humans are easily fooled thanks to selective attention. But if you look where they don't tell you to look, it's amazing what you can see hidden in plain sight.

James Wesley Howell is the smoking gun that proves terror events worldwide are sponsored by intelligence agencies. He asked Santa Monica police for protection June 12, the morning of the Orlando “massacre.”  He told them he was supposed to bomb the gay pride parade but had backed out when he learned Omar Mateen had been killed in Orlando. He said he had trained with Mateen at a CIA camp in Virginia.

Spotting a false flag 101:

  1. Culprits’ names are released within hours of the attack
  2. Contradictory reports emerge after attack, then quickly forgotten
  3. Culprits were “under watch” by inteligence services
  4. There were "exercises" happening at the same time
  5. Culprits (and/or their families) claim innocence
  6. Culprits “forget” stuff (ID cards, passports, Corans, etc.) on scene
  7. Conveniently incriminating videos immediately appear on Youtube
  8. Political timing of the attack is suspicious
  9. Attacks are immediately used to justify an attack on individual liberty
  10. MSM speaks in unison, parrots the same given narrative
  11. Calls for in-depth investigation are labeled “unpatriotic"
  12. If found, culprits are not allowed to live and go to trial
delacroix's picture

the cars at sandy hook, were from an impound yard, and they were not parked right. the school had been scheduled for asbestos removal, and had mold issues, and there hadn't been an internet connection to the school, for around 2 years. you are a liar . crisis actors everywhere, and the news story released the day before it happened. you kikes aren't as smart as you think you are, but you've got chutzpah up the ass.

mayhem_korner's picture

You have no idea what you are saying.  Never mind the truth, just keep believing what you want.

kiwidor's picture

yes, and notice how they parked the firetrucks.  all neat in a row.

lol.  some emergency

mayhem_korner's picture

Are you serious?  I don't even have to know what you're referencing to call out that comment as and idiot's spawn.

Do you know the location of the fire house relative to the SHES - and why it was used as a staging area for parents?  Probably not, because like most (all?) here you don't know Newtown, don't live there, and weren't there that day.  Which means you don't know what happened.


Buckaroo Banzai's picture

>Poeple i KNOW died. That I can tell you with 100% certainty. SO YES people (children) actually died

oh. So you saw the bodies? Or, you personally witnessed the children get shot?

Did you ever ask any of these "PEOPLE'S" (presumably you mean, CHILDREN'S) "parents" why they moved to Newtown less than four years before the "shootings"? 

Answer: they started stage-managing this event right after Obama's 2008 election. One does wonder what happened to all the cute little orphan child-actors after they were "shot".

mayhem_korner's picture

What a sad display.  You have convinced yourself about what is true from a far distance.  Yet you don't know a thing. 

Anything that runs counter to what you want to believe is subject to all-out assault.  Yet you don't know a thing.

Shift the onus of "proof" away from the alternate reality that you believe.  Yet you don't know a thing.

Sad.  But more over offensive.

No amount of evidence will convince you of the truth, Hillary.

i saw one of those child actors right here in wellington, new zealand.  with his dad.  after the shoot, they go ON HOLIDAY.

and they distract the chillens from what they participated in.  real simple.

all crisis actors, and their parents, and their children, are enemies of the human race.

Dude, ask the parents of someone who has lost a child why they moved to Newtown? Are you out of your fucking mind? Do you REALLY believe it didn't happen??

Child-actors? My, you are quite the brainwashed little fellow aren;t you?

Seriously, when did ZH become a ghetto InfoWars?


Keyser's picture

Let's cut to the chase, you show me your anecdotal evidence and I'll show you mine... I already went first, so it's your turn... Name some of the people that YOU KNEW who died in this incident...  Come on, we are waiting with baited breath... Probably much like the crew of the shuttle Challenger, the dead mysteriously reappeared at a later date under new names... I mourned Dick Scobee for years, until I found out the fucker was still alive!!!

Marge N Call's picture

So driving past a school and seeing the lot full of cars, and seeing buses and school children coming and going is "anecdotal" proof that the school wasn't closed?

I saw it. I didn't "know" someone who saw it.

I personally talked to children who were there but survived.

Wait, no, those must have been child-actors just like your chuckleheaded tinfoil hat buddies think. LOL.

Let's see which scenario passes the straght face test, shall we?

A. there's a bunch of actors out there who "acted" (and continue to "act", wait are they still getting paid?) as survivors, children and adults, yet NOT ONE has ever come forth and told their secret?


B. there's a bunch of poeple who actaully survived.

Keyser.  Here's a little credibility riddle for you:

Pose question to which only someone who lived in Newtown, CT in December 2012 would know the answer.


max_leering's picture

Marg, People I know didn't die. I can tell you that with 100% certainty. So NO, people (children) didn't die.

The school was closed. That is the TRUTH.

Blanks!... what blanks?

And my better judgement tells me that "GUN CONTROL" was the only result the perps of Sandy Hoax wanted me to believe. Or believe in.

BTW, people died on 912 too, but it was just a real car wreck. I'm totally drawing a blank to fill in.

I've always been intrigued that there were no injured survivors...all that were shot were killed...that kid was like "special operator" good...

Precisely.  My .223 24" barrel puts FMJ 55gr through a 1/4" of steel at 180yds.   There should have been a lot of through and through injuries.

There were injured survivors.  You just choose to ignore them in your narrative.

name them, cunt!  got any pictures of the bodies?  no.  i figured you wouldn't.  fuck off!!

you won't tho. you'll never offer evidence of anything

Little riddle for you and the rest here.  Figure it out or shut the hell up about what you "know."
