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.

I dont think sandy hook was a hoax, I think it actually happened exactly as it was orchestrated to happen. No doubt if Hillary had won they would have slauightered another bunch of children by now in order to build support for her gun grab.

Not really.

The people who make it all work will still be here making it all work even when the string-pullers pull their last string.

They need us and we don't need them. We'll get on fine without them and they know it. This worries them.

A lot.

You just have to maintain a proper perspective. When enough people find it doesn't pay to go along to get along, they'll quit going along and start raising hell. They're going to have to piss off a lot more people to get that effective 3% that gets things done.

That's the way it works.

All at once Easiest and Most Effective is to unplug the "TV."

You don't even need to call Megyn a media whore that way; she'll magically disappear...  

and be sent to pasture.

No muss, no fuss.

JP Morgan has been the beacon of intergrity ever since they looked the other way to Bernie Maddoff's swindle.  Save me the sanctimonious bullshit you jagoff bankers.

Jpm is appalled that Kelly would risk waking some of the herd. What does she want a stampede? Jpm is a breathing conspiracy in daily operation.

The irony is steeped in....well, irony. Makes me head hurt!

This interview was never meant to be aired. Its another sad attempt to make "right wingers" look like conspiracy theorists. Didn't work the first time and it certainly won't work now.  

Attempts like this prove alternative news is winning the infomation war.

alex jones talk about stuff that fake media doesnt by picking controversial topics or taking different angles.Some of the facts are hard to dodge. At least there is an alternative to the repulsive orwellian shitshow pushed by oligarchic media matrix. 

I dont have to agree with alex jones to support what he is doing.

Wow, Alex touched the cranial nerve.  If it is not true then why bother ? Their anger says a lot. Why JP Morgan ? what is their link ?

The way AJ is squawking and backpedaling he must look nuttier than usual and his Ego gave her 12 hours to do it.

Not a Jones fan but must say I followed him closely during the Presidential election and he hard it right a month in advance.

but think how much easier chanting "lock her up" in the streets is to trying to do a #unrigged with him in office is...

 

i'm  saying no confidence 2016 was the way to go. if it was hillary, think how much easier this wouldabeen to "pull".

Would love to have been a fly on the wall when their lawyers wrote the script for that interview (I mean terms, of course)

Alex we'll give you an additional $500,000 every time you come across as racist and an additional $300,000 for general buffoonery. Just make her "amazing" in the eyes of the NBC audience. How much pecker hardener do you have to sell to equal this windfall? Come on play ball, your base is cemented, were transforming a new shill here from the dark side to the darker side. 

Reinvention is tough, but easier than swallowing Ailes heirs by the billion.

Kind of sounds like the whole Russian election tampering theory doesn't it?

 Don't see what the MSM is doing with the Russia conspiracy is at any diferent level and probably below the evidence in a Alex Jones conspiracy

JPM may be corrupt but they know a liability when they see one.

Big fracking whoop de do. I don't care what their alleged motives are. Anything that takes money out of NBC's pockets is golden as far as I am concerned. What would be even more delicious would be if NBC turned around and tried to take it out of Kelly's salary and it started a contractual dispute that got her suspended. Well I can dream can't I?

Alex Jones AKA Comedian Bill Hicks ( real name unknown ), has always been controlled opposition. I won't go into the Aurora or Boston as they have been deconstructed by many others including myself. Sometimes they out other spooks or tell you something you already know to build cred. They will steer you off the path at some point though as they are known as Gatekeepers. This is not unknown to the other players in the media, so what the purpose is of this double layered brain swirl I do not know. Makes good entertainment anyways. Now time to make some popcorn!

Mmm Hmm.  It looks like Alex hit a sore spot there.  Call the FBI and ask them why the Sandy Hook massacre isn't showing up in their stats.  The way I see it, Alex didn't say anything that the FBI isn't saying.

Kristin Lemkau is an idiot to tweet about Megyn Kelly interview.  I dislike Megyn, but dislike Kristin even more because she is part of Chase, which is a pus-filled maggot eating the middle class.

From helping Bernie Madoff’s $50 billion Ponzi scheme and rigging electricity markets to fraudulently selling more than $33 billion in toxic mortgage securities and ripping off credit card customers, JP Morgan Chase is a criminal organization. I am repilsed that anyone would allow this criminal organization to advertise on it's network.

Exactly why am I supposed to think Sandy Hook actually did happen?
Where might I find the police reports, the autopsy reports, the ballistics reports?
Or am I just supposed to take some jackass' word for it?

Alex Jones and InfoWars are the only ones telling truth to power.

They're one of the few outlets who aren't scared to tell the people what is really going on.  Everything that AJ and IW have said over the past few years, has come true.  Every. Single. Thing.  Jones knows what he's talking about, and he's not afraid to stand up to the globalist cabal.

Further, AJ was a true supporter of the things that Trump stood for, and he was right (like me) that Trump would win.

Between here as Surveyor4Pres, and on IW/Breitbart as 007_Conservative, mark my words--Alex Jones is one of the Patriots.

You gotta be kidding considering AJ is your hero at this time, he is a wolf put there by the deep state to kill true alternative news.

How 90% truth and 10% lies or for that matter 99% truth 1 % lies/deception changes the perspective of the whole thing of subject matter and while you perplexed on the way AJ alike puts the news the real criminals fade away unobserved.

For all his rough edges, Jones is a true patriot.  A modern day Paul Revere, "The globalists are coming! The globalists are coming!"

HMMm, the hasty action of pulling their and announcing it is gonna do what????

Bring more event awareness by the msm to the plebs.

goldman sachs at war with nbc, finally things are getting interesting.

just the tip's picture

this is not war.  this is the new advertising M/O.  advertising by not advertising.  advertise by issuing a tweet you are pulling your advertising, thereby increasing viewership / interest of the program.  thereby getting lower advertising rates after said controversy dies down.  win/win.

Sandy Hook and Aurora were FUCKING hoaxes - so what is JP Morgans problem ??
