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

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.

Alex Jones does a great radio news show. If you don't listen to it regularly and your opinions of him were given to you by someone else, then you probably wouldn't know that.

He doesn't do the false narrative Fake News crap all the Big Mainstream outfits do.

He breaks and covers stories the MSM won't touch because they are off narrative.

He often has real interesting guests and spends enough time with them to cover their story in depth. MSM only has little sound bites.

He doesn't adhere to Political Correctness.

He gets hyper and rants, which are kinda interesting. I have found though, that If Alex says they are out to get us. They probably are.

TheRideNeverEnds's picture

Tell us Alex, who is that is controlling the media, brainwashing kids in schools, controlling the government and financial sectors. Who has pushed this anti white agenda? Who invented the "melting pot" myth. Who blocks any action to try to fight against the aforementioned in the judiciary?

He still refuses to name the Jew.

Savyindallas's picture

His listeners know full who Alex is talking about. Alex has his role  -just because he doesn't specifically blame Jews doesn't mean he is a sellout or controlled. If he talked like david Duke -regardless of whether Duke is right or wrong-do you think he would ever have achieved such prominnence and even had Donald Trump as a guest on his show? 

Cut the guy some slack. He has his role in telling the truth, and he does it well. 

 

Give Me Some Truth's picture

I don't know much about Alex Jones. But since I know a great deal about the fake news spread by the MSM I quickly gave you an up vote and feel comfortable agreeing with your statetment.

It's the news they do not report that makes the MSM blatant purveyours of fake news.

Ask a CNBC host to ask a JP Morgan spokesman how much physical silver the bank owns and how much money it has made shorting the silver and gold markets. These questions will NOT be asked.

Give Me Some Truth's picture

Alex Jones ought to ask some tough questions about JP Morgan and silver rigging on his show. I doubt that JP Morgan runs any commercials on his show so he doesn't have to worry about losing any advertising.

I read her first show was beaten by a 60 minutes rerun...I don't give a flying flip...I wouldn't watch either show. I think the Super Bowl was the last damn thing i watched on network TV...

The only way NBC will get their money out of her is by hosting a pay-per-view Tijuana donkey show with Megyn as the star.

Make it weekly, change out the animal, and they might see a profit.
