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.

Haven't watched NBC (or MSNBC or CNN for that matter) for I don't know how many years? Kinda like saying that some business is boycotting an Australian TV station...affects me the same way...zero.

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.

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!

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

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.

Jack Oliver's picture

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

LightBulb18's picture

Good questions to do polling on the American people. Do you believe that big banks like goldman sachs have pressured governments, bribed government foreign government officials, subverted foreign elections and installed puppet governments thought the world? Do you think the main stream media has covered up for the actions of the big banks in the past and in the present? I bet A big percentage of the population would agree that the big banks have done all of that.

U pay TV? I no see JPM Ad... in my whole life.

So, Business Papers, Investment Digests,... put down the foot. No NBC News by Liberal who interviews Libertarians or conservatives or nationalist.

Bundy Family, Jack Ruby Family, Kocesh from Waco family... they get no play in Wall Street or whatever. States Rights, County Rights, Peoples Rights, Ranchers Rights... Property rights of small guy, small rancher, small farmer,... nada.

So yeah... JPM just inflamed Populist Movement... If Populist Movement reads Wall Street or Pork Bellies, Winter Wheat, Soy Beans, Corn Prices...

- Maybe Rumor... Don Trump Admin turns on Farmers & Williams Jennings Bryan... Farm Insurance

Damn! I just remembered - the rank and file haven't been told yet. How could I have been so careless? ... OK, OK, calm down , I can fix this.

Hey, everybody? Just keep that under your hat, OK? Don't tell anyone - promise? Wait a minute. What thread is this??! #$%^!!

Alex Jones is an entertainer who peddles the most interesting made up shit he can think of.  Unfortunately there are a lot of Edgar Welch's out there that actually can't tell the difference between crap and entertainment.

That Megyn Kelly chose to interview him is just part and parcel of the whole Kardashian mentality that permeates mass media.  Its just entertainment folks.  Don't take it seriously.

Oh, except the chemtrails.  Now thats real.  I know for sure that aircraft are spraying people with chemicals that make them both impotent and docile.  Its happening.  I know it.  My neighbor is acting strange and he spends a lot of time outside explosed to that stuff.   

Tell people the truth, if the Jews can't make us believe their lies then they will gas us with chemtrails. Act now, before its too late.

JPM is attempting to manufacture a new image as a sensitive flower in order to sanitize its image as America’s Most Corrupt Bank, trafficking in bribes, exploitation, fraud, deception and manipulation. And exploiting it to the hilt. It’s all banker propaganda to fight the truth with every psychological weapon the Globalists have, including use of the media.

MS. Kelly is an animal human mutant! :)

konadog's picture

JP Morgan, the company that has been screwing over America since inception, is worried about its image?  That's a good one. Don't worry JP - I'll still loath your fraudster ass just the same even if Alex Jones is in your advertising slots.

NAV's picture

Yes. Trying to polish up the tarnished image with a little free publicity. So clever. Like getting away with offloading bad mortgages on other parties, including U.S. taxpayers, while sitting on the board of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

me thinks ms. kelly is jumping the shark a bit too early in her nbc career.  she is fast becoming the new and hotter version of connie chung. 

show us your tits!

Not that I'm a Megyn Kelly fan, but the J.P. Morgan has always been a part of the "deep state" inner circle that has their filty fingerprints on everything bad from the creation of the Federal Reserve to the attack on the World Trade Center. It makes sense that they would want to distance them from a voice of truth like Alex Jones. If anything, Megyn Kelly should have known better if she cared at all to preserve the revenue stream from JPM to NBC. Or perhaps she is just plain naive.

you talk like its actually Megan Kelly, the reporter, making those decisions.  Bwhahahahaaaa

Lol.

Really. Reading from a teleprompter is not exactly a challenging skill requiring enormous brain power.

We've had 8 years of proof to go by.

Alex is a shill who is funded by various nefarious backers.  That he is being promoted is all part of the agenda. That JPM is protesting is just adding to the publicity.  This is PR 101.

I was explaining to my wife he is a psyop.
Notice she calls him "conservative".

Bull shit. Hes a psyop.

Edit: You get four greens and I parrot what you say in a different way and I get four reds. Drudge can stop linking to ZH now....

Edit 2: The shepwave shill is here and I called them out and then get 4 reds. Got it.

If you're looking for the most kickass market calls, by all means, look up shitwave and their fuckbook page. Man, that's how you invest!

SeekingNuNormal's picture

honest question:  what exactly is the psyop and who is the target?  to what ends?

Akhenaten II's picture

I am dissapointed. I thought at least 75% of ZH'ers were smarter than average. So at 50%....not too bad i guess.

I love Shempwave. We need a Moewave and a Curleywave too.

If the JP Morgan swine can produce the Social Security death certs for all the kids and proof of autopsys conducted (required on all murder vics)... they would still be shitbags... but a bit more credible in their artifical furor.

Meghan "Smegma" Kelly is a repulsive, yeasty asshole. The new Jerry Springer.

As a citizen, I'm replused by JP Morgan.

I don't know much about Aurora, but I have no doubt that Sandy Hook was a cruel hoax, and I find it interesting that they did not throw 9/11 into their hissy fit.  Perhaps they understand that most people on the planet know the official 9/11 story is BS, and they want to maintain some credibility.
