Let’s talk about this – I’m somewhat torn about it.
I’m against giving crazy people any exposure or airtime, because to them and their core followers it legitimizes their positions — especially when the interview is by someone notable.
On the other hand, as Megyn Kelly points out, it’s about ‘shining a light’ on Jones, particularly since he now has unprecedented access to the President.
Piers Morgan did that previously, and I would hope that Kelly was aiming for a similar sort of on-camera meltdown.
NBC anchor Megyn Kelly’s plan to air an interview with right-wing provocateur Alex Jones has caused a firestorm to erupt on social media, but so far advertisers have remained quiet—with at least one notable exception.
