Kelly presses 'Infowars' host Jones on Sandy Hook denial

Megyn Kelly Alex Jones

"Megyn Kelly Presses Alex Jones on Conspiracy Theories in Edited NBC Interview", read the initial New York Times headline on the interview, still visible in a tweet.

The NBC program was seen by 3.5 million viewers, according to Nielsen, an audience dwarfed by CBS rival "60 Minutes", which drew 5.3 million viewers.

Despite high-rated U.S. Open golf coverage this week on Fox, "Sunday Night" finishes within 0.1 of a point of last week in adults 18-49 (0.5 vs. 0.6) and adults 25-54 (0.7 vs. 0.8) and retains 98% in total viewers (3.527 million vs. 3.608 million).

The program took a nosedive in comparison to Kelly's debut on June 4, which featured an interview with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

On her new show with NBC, Megyn Kelly reported on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and the influence he has had on current conservative politics. Members of that community, where 20 children and six educators were killed, were among the voices raised against NBC airing the interview.

Green stays in Game 4 after technical foul fiasco
Late in Game 4 past year , Green swiped at LeBron James' groin and was subsequently given a flagrant foul. The first half tech just got changed from Draymond Green to Steve Kerr and is now on DeMarcus Cousins.

Jones dubbed the interview as "fake news" before it even aired, and started releasing secretly recording recordings with Kelly in an attempt to show her dishonesty in the process.

As you'd expect, the reviews were split over the NBC newbie's one-on-one sit down with the conspiracy theorist, who outrageously claimed the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax.

In the meantime, Alex Jones is still threatening to release the full version of the interview he promises will lay bare the mainstream media's lies, as well as expose even more members of this vast conspiracy of people who absolutely can not give a shit about what Alex Jones says.

Kelly said Jones never completely disavowed his previous statements about the killings being a hoax.

A week before the episode aired, group founded by the parents of Sandy Hook Elementary School victims dropped Kelly as an event host due to the then-unaired interview. Nicole Hockley, who lost her 6-year-old son Dylan in the shooting, publicly announced she wouldn't view the interview for "obvious" reasons. Jones leaked audio of his conversations with Kelly days before the broadcast.
