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.

WTF! Sandy Hoax - How can you not believe this. It was a wonderful production with some of the best crisis actors money can buy.

WTF! Sandy Hoax - How can you not believe this.

 

I still can't get over the traffic sign they had set up at the school that said; "Everyone needs to sign in here".  But it was a "real" event . . . yeah, right.  Not to mention one of the "dead kids" (little "Noah") has been seen in at least two other locations since then (once in Pakistan of all places). Not to mention that Sandy Hook Elementary School had been closed for at least 3 years prior to the "shooting" due to asbestos inside the building.  I could go on . . . .

there were 2 different video clips showing a teacher leading the kids out of the building. 1 kid was in 2 different positions in line, at the same physical location.   CUT   THATS A WRAP

Listen, if we're going to stop lying douchbags from being interviewed on TV we've got a whole mess of congressmen and senetors we should start with.

Personally, I would live a more happier life if I never had to hear another piece of stupidity uttered by that moron Maxine Waters.

She tweeted her condolences to Muslims of London and suggested poor healthcare and global warming have pushed them to this. Not sure what this is? Killing, raping, pillaging? I thought it was their lovely Koran.

Maybe if they were all institutionalized in fancy insane asylums, they'd be happy. But no air or heat. We don't wish to contribute to global warming, which will further enrage them.

Long time fan of Alex Jones and Infowars. How did I learn about him? Beck went on a rant for weeks and weeks and I finally started listening to Jones. Haven't listened to the little orange-faced Cheeto huffer, Beck, in years.

As for skanky Kelly? She always dressed like a two-bit hooker when she was on FOX. I remember counting the flying camera shots of her shoes. Over 30 flying camera shots of her fucking shoes through that clear plexi desk. I knew this chick was for sale to the highest bidder many years ago.

Home Run!  LMFAO!

Kelly can interview whom she wants....actually, her stance of definace increases her cred with the average American people who most likely Hate bankers anyway. I would brag about it if I were NBC and turn lemons into lemonade. Also, shorter (but classy) skirts are a big plus.

They can even play the Banker anti-feminist card.

BTW:

 

The new gig means that Kelly will also raise her salary from the previously reported $10 million to $12 million range at Fox to likely between $15 million and $20 million at NBC, according to The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.

$20 million

  Struth! That will buy a lot of "truth". Paul Craig Roberts is correct. They are prestitutes.

She is giving prostitutes a bad name.

HRH Feant2's picture

She always dressed like a NYC street ho. Look at the outfit she wore to interview Putin. Kelly will never be a new Barbara Walters. You can love, or hate, Barbara Walters, but at least she dressed like a lady and kept it classy.

Kelly faked like she was on the right for years and then people realized she was nothing but a fraud. Kelly wanted to be famous. What is that old saying? Be careful what you wish for.

Lotta miles on that clapped- out squoitch...&nbc paid full price.

Global Douche's picture

I listen to both. Beck, on an AM radio station some 40 miles from me, and InfoWars when it's live if I'm off work. Beck seems to want to bash Jones more than Jones to him, but I'd pay to see them in a cage match. Lock them fuckers in and let Nature take it's course. Better than two cats with tails tied together on a clothesline!

HRH Feant2's picture

Jeez dude you listen to AM radio? Get the Talk Stream Live app. Beck is on there almost 24/7 and Jones is on in the am. My days of listening to actual AM radio are long gone. It would have to be the end of the world before I fired up my am radio. Just saying.

There is an older app for Infowars that I use, too. Show repeats and, again, you listen via smart phone app. I port my audio to a Bose Soundlink portable speaker. Superior audio quality. And it has a mute button.

It is good to have a radio, nobody tracks what you are listening.

Portable, earphones, rechargeable batteries and short wave and you are good to go.

I KNOW! Whats so hard? AAbatteries last 4 days continuous use & et niggt ican get almost any station in usa on am... Sw alittle glitchier...but not too herd...

I can't bring an app into the shower at the gym,where i burn the jew's ass who runs the place by using all that hot water for 45 minutes.

HRH Feant2's picture

I always listen to AJ in the shower. Plunk my Bose down on the counter and blast it.

There are some phones that you can get wet. Samsung has a couple.

45-minutes in the shower at a gym? Ewwwwwwwwwwww. I don't even want to know WTF you are doing for that long in a public shower.

My showers last between 20 and 25 minutes. I use both shampoo and conditioner on my hair, apply a Japanese enzymatic facial scrub, shave under my arms and my legs, and finish up by washing off using L'Occitane milk soap and and finish with an in-shower body oil.

Whatever. To each their own!

Easier to get a smarphone with a data plan, get the app, sign up for streaming, pay to upgrade the phone every year, pay for cellular data with spotty coverage, have your every move and listening choice tracked, recharge the phone twice a day, etc; or just turn on the AM radio, tune in the station and listen for free -- forever.

King of Ruperts Land's picture

Yes the end of the world. AM transmitters can be put together fairly easily. Most cars have AM radio. In certain SHTF situations AM radio may be usefull.

fuk, Jones would rip Becks tongue and heart out and eat them in front of him before he died.

Fuck 'em. A large majority of America is repulsed by JP Morgan.

Alex Jones is FAR more accurate and honest than the MSM Fake News propaganda.

Yep . . . you may not like his views or his take on certain topics but that is the truth.

He has broken many news stories. I like his chuztpa! Esp since he has to deal with all those libtards in Austin 24/7.

I am not a real fan of Jones but I used to listen to him pretty frequently.  The guy does have some balls . . . except when it comes to criticizing the Tribe.
