‘Dangerous Hateful Goon’: Twitter Unloads on NBC For Upcoming Alex Jones-Megyn Kelly Interview

On Sunday, Megyn Kelly teased her upcoming interview with Alex Jones. Jones, the creator and chief mouthpiece of the website InfoWars has pushed a long list of fantastical conspiracy theories including claims that 9/11 was an “inside job”, the Sandy Hook massacre was staged and “animal human hybrids”

Long confined to the fringes, Jones has taken on considerable new relevance with the rise and election of Donald Trump. Trump praised the host during an interview with Jones on the campaign trail and InfoWars appears to be closing in on White House press credentials.

Twitter was overwhelmingly negative on NBC’s decision to give Jones a wider platform, and Sunday’s teaser suggests the fast talking Texan isn’t planning to give Kelly an inch.
