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.

Another example of the extreme left pussyhatters stifling speech that makes them uncomfortable. When will enough be enough?

As an American I am repulsed by Megyn Kelly.

Attempting to sink candidate Trump's run for the Presidency with her opening in your face vile question during a debate, will forever in the hearts of God and Just loving Americans be remembered as one of the low if not the lowest moments in the history of television.

I too am repulsed by the Poster Child of Bitch Face, Megyn Kelly.

Trump and Jim Rickards have been criticizing free trade and comparative advantage, and here's why they're wrong:

J P Morgan have always been an object of interest to conspiracy theorists.  Wasn't old man Morgan the richest man in america shown to be a Rothschild agent back in the day?   Wasn't J P Morgan a major player in the verified conspiracy that involved setting up the Federal Reserve Bank on the sly?   If J P Morgan doesn't like it maybe I need to give Infowars another look, Sandy Hook nonsense notwithstanding

Megyn Kelly defies the "any press is good press" philosophy. Making a deal with the devil is going to do you damage and he had to know that going in. I just don't see how a press shit storm about him being a complete lunatic is helpful

Conspiracist Alex Jones!, what an outrage, however a day earlier parading Oscar Lopez Rivera, an actual Puerto Rican terrorist, through the streets of the same city was a-okay.

I'm glad a few people realise TPTB will pull the advertising plug from neutral and left leaning media, if it clashes, or challenges their narrative. The Left vs Right Kabuki show, is for idiots and the gullible.

As an investor, I'm repulsed the Kristine, what's her face, would politicise an investment banks advertising. Keep to your faduceary duty and keep out of politics. Plus Megan Kelly is so much more hotter then you, whatever your name is!

Is Alex Jones, the one Being discussed here, a member of the evil Knights of Malta? I like this Alex if he isn't the Knight, if he is a member of that bunch of clapdoctors, fuck him.

TV People

Are actors,

compensated provocateurs.

Screen spooks.

Faux-info mercenaries.

Predators of the unread herd,

over-produced, sanitized-silliness.

Turn the TV off. De-energize them all.

I don't like Megan Kelly. She seems to be all about herself, but that is like being all about nothing. Still I'd rather look at her face than that of Hillary which literally makes me sick to my stomach as if I swallowed poison. Most politicians induce a desire to vomit, but Hillary, for me, has a special gift. Perhaps ZH could post Megan's picture everytime we would otherwise have to look at Hillary. Just write next to it, "This is Hillary" when the article is about Hillary. That would be performing a public service. If all sites did this, the mental health of Americans would improve and we might actually have peace in the world. People would rejoice not to have to look at the gorgon and a new sense of optimism would grip the USA.

A new dawn awaits us.

Not a fan of MK or AJ.  MK manipulative, arrogant and condescending persona just looking for the 'gotcha-moment' that bleeds through the screen.  Another overpaid opportunist.  AJ can be a verbose fear peddler that looks like he's ready to pop. Mainstream news media is entertainment only-tabloid drivel.  A waste of time.  Turn it off, people.

Megyn Kelly No Longer Hosting Sandy Hook Benefit Due to Alex Jones Interview

 

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/megyn-kelly-no-longer-hosting-sandy-hoo...

 

The leftties can't stand free speech. If you disagree with a Democrap or libtard, you are "repulsive."

I love to see the Marxists, MSM and soros-funded terrorists go into hysterics every day! Today is special because even Wall Street bankers (jpm) is in a panic. Maybe jamee will get on the podium and shed some tears like Schumer did.

lol

Poor Megyn (with a Y)is going to be dis-invited to the "Teach your kids to sing guns are oogy" Foundation.

Fucks like Kelly and Jones (and most everyone of their ilk) want is one thing:  bigger bank accounts.  They's all pull a Richard Widmark on their grannie to pad their pile of $$$.  Ironically, in America, the more $$$ you have, the smarter you are assummed to be.  What a mess American culture is.

Who the fuck is Megyn Kelly?  Is she the titless bitch?  At one time I thought she was attractive.  I bought a super hi def TV and had all the filters off and MY GOD she is ugly.  I bet she pays that makeup artist a fortune.

Insightful. Kelly's not as smart / streetwise as I thought. Someone else must have been responsible for engineering her split from Fox, and her fat check from NBC. Hope they understood their philly, and got their's up front. 

 

While Jones is total mouth breathing carnival barker, the infobabe isn't supposed to use the their timeslot to provoke anyone to contemplate why Dems / Repubs / Communists / Globalists / SWJ Radicals / Bueacracies (ie SEIU) / Wallstreet / The Courts / MSM --> have all colluded against Trump. What if people just started with that question?

I would fuck kelly if she promised to leave after

Loking at the twitter feed the JPMorgan bitch hangs with losers Shannon Watts and the like minded libturds. It's more of the show folks, as these bitch puppets can't really think for themselves. Critical thinkg - forget it. Becoming middle aged, losing their looks, just in it for the money whatever it takes. It's coming to frutition as they'll be eating thier own.

Up or down, Megyn Kelly new Poster Child for Bitch Face.
