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.

If things happen the way the official narrative says, they should welcome the discussion. What purpose do they have in oppressing opposing viewpoints if they are being truthful?

no.  you can't assume that forever.  if we are ever to win, to reveal the crimes of the deep state and defeat it, at some point the truth will begin to penetrate even the msm, obviously a little at a time and opposed by twitter feeds like the one referenced above where just contemptuously invoking the name of trump or alex jones or, for that matter, zerohedge is considered a winning argument.  that's why seth rich's murder is so important.  it ties the "resistance" to the killers in the dnc and the deep state (some overlap there), it is completely current, it is a very serious crime that everyone agrees is a crime, and, imo, it can be shown to implicate law enforcement: the d.c. cops with some trying and the fbi seemingly in its first glance.  why again didn't the fbi while investigating the email theft at the dnc, look into the murder of a dnc data analyst/manager, killed between the announcement of the theft and its publication, whose publisher, julian assange, offered a reward for rich's murderer, something he has never done before or since?   not even to glance at his computer?  he could have been a russian spy or trump mole or both.  it is too much for anyone to believe, flat out.  they are caught.

 Coroner Wayne Carver was drunk in Vegas a few years back and told half a Casino that the entire ordeal was a "Fabrication".  Too bad no one had their cell phones running.  Naturally he was angry because he expected his retirement pension to be well into the six-figure range, and Butt-hurt set in when it was in the low 90k range.  Why do you think POS Gov. Malloy was sitting in the press box with the Wookie at the final SOTU address?  He was lined up for a Hildebeast Cabinet position.  Now he's stuck in CT swimming in the Gigantic Financial mess he created.

 https://thegovernmentrag.wordpress.com/2013/01/26/the-motive-at-newtown… are some other details in the article about someone being "Dismissed" from the Coroner's office for showing her husband Lanza's body.  True be told, no one EVER saw Adam Lanza.  No neighbors, friends, schoolmates, no one.  It was like trying to find classmates of Obama.  The only picture that was ever circulated was the photo that was later claimed to be a multi-layer photo-shop image.  It was another story to add to the narrative.  There must be a body if someone was fired, it has to be true.  There is no Birth certificate, Social Security information or Death certificate in Lanza's name.  Shortly after this "Stage Play" when people started looking into the records (or lack thereof), Malloy shut the entire business down and classified everything and it's gone.  There isn't even an FBI record of this event.  Government Farce from Beginning to End.

 They changed the story so many times, no one could keep it straight.  First pass it was Nancy worked at the school.  Then Nancy worked part-time at the school.  Followed by Nancy used to work at the school and finally Nancy never worked at the school.  Take your pick on that one.  The entire narrative was like that.  I live in CT and every network had a different story every minute.  Confusing the facts makes it tougher to nail down a false narrative. There was no shooter because no one was shot.  That school had been closed for a year.  The only people there were FEMA personnel.  The only person to hear shots was Gene Rosen (FEMA employee) 3/4 mile up the street.  Now the school is gone, Lanza's house is gone, everything is gone.  They did a pretty shitty job in execution, but they covered their tracks pretty well, they destroyed any trace of anything.

Bes. Poeple i KNOW died. That I can tell you with 100% certainty. SO YES people (children) actually died. The school was NOT closed. That is a LIE.Those are all the facts the I know, which is more than most people on the subject. Fill in the blanks according to your own judgement and beliefs. BTW people DIED in 911 too, the event was real. Again, fill in your own blanks.

What difference does it make how frequently someone posts?  Is there some unwritten ratio of postings-to-tenure that one must keep to meet your standard for "credible", or are you just some grandstander curled up in your sister's closet? I used to post a fair amount here, but ZH has seen a shift in its membership that is less analytically robust, and far more prone to be all-in on conspiracy theory, so I don't engage as much. Lotsa posters here with militant conviction about things they assume - or wish - but don't know to be true. Party on, Jethro.
