Megyn Kelly was Fox News Channel’s ratings queen. She has since moved to NBC to help the flailing network improve ratings. Unfortunately for Kelly, she’s not getting the numbers that NBC had hoped for. Even after Vladimir Putin suggested she didn’t know what she was talking about and Alex Jones said that Sandy Hook never happened, her ratings are tanking.
In a demonstration of good taste, one NBC affiliate in Connecticut has decided not to air the interview with Alex Jones.
JPMorganChase is the only advertiser to have announced pulling out of the broadcast due to the controversy of Jones’ claim.
“That comes with the territory,” NBC News Chairman Andy Lack told the Associated Press when asked about the commercial response. “It’s not unusual. We kind of know when we’re doing controversial stories, that’s going to happen. It doesn’t stop us from doing controversial stories.”
Jones went on the record saying that the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut that resulted in the deaths of 26 people, including 20 children, in 2012 never happened.
