NBC to air Jones interview despite efforts to 'distract'

NBC-affiliate WVIT in Connecticut said it won't air Megyn Kelly's interview with Alex Jones Sunday citing Sandy Hook families'

Jones, who claims 9/11 was "an inside job" and the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School included parents of 20 slain children who were "actors", said in a video posted Thursday to that he secretly recorded the interview because the edited version of it will be "a fraud" and "a lie". It says "the wounds are understandably still so raw" in the state. Out of respect for the families of the Sandy Hook victims, the NBC-owned Newtown station WVIT has decided not to air the interview, regardless of its parent company's decision.

"Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly" airs on Sundays at 7 p.m. ET on NBC.

The interview with Jones, scheduled to air on Sunday, has prompted outrage, especially in CT, where 20 children and six adults were killed by a deranged gunman at the elementary school in Newtown.

The Info Wars radio host has repeatedly dismissed the massacre as a hoax, sparking outrage from victims' families.

Warriors one win away from NBA title
One of the main problems they had with the Cavs in the eastern conference finals were their size inside and rebounding ability. As a team, however, the three-pointer continues to elude the Cavaliers , who shot just 27.3% from behind the line.

"It's not going to be some gotcha hit piece, I can promise you that", Kelly is heard saying to Jones. Nelba Márquez-Greene, whose daughter Ana Grace was killed in the Sandy Hook shooting, blasted the host on Twitter and expressed the anguish she and other grieving parents continue to feel-from their loss and the subsequent harassment.

Kelly, who interviewed Russian President Vladimir Putin on the June 4 premiere of "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly", said on Twitter that President Donald Trump has praised Jones and been on his show.

Kelly has called Jones' claims "revolting" but says there's value in exposing what he says to the American people.

"Our goal in sitting down with him was to shine a light - as journalists are supposed to do - on this influential figure, and yes - to discuss the considerable falsehoods he has promoted with near impunity". The story, scheduled to air Sunday evening, has NBC being buffeted from both sides.

"Kelly's interview implicitly endorses the notion that Mr. Jones" lies are actually "claims' that are worthy of serious debate, and in doing so it exponentially enhances the suffering and distress of our clients", lawyers representing 12 people who lost loved ones in the 2012 shooting Josh Koskoff and Katie Mesner-Hage wrote the network, via A.P.
