JP Morgan Chase Pulls NBC Ads Over Alex Jones Interview

NBC's "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly"

By    |   Monday, 12 Jun 2017 09:47 PM

J.P. Morgan Chase has pulled its advertising from all NBC News programs until after a controversial interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones​ airs — an interview Jones himself now wants canceled.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the financial services company does not agree with the network airing Megyn Kelly's interview with Alex Jones, a controversial figure who has said in the past he believes the Sandy Hook school shooting and the Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooting were hoaxes, and the Sept. 11 terror attacks were an "inside job."

The interview is scheduled to air during the next episode of "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly." Jones runs the Infowars website and has floated several conspiracy theories in the past.

The 2012 Sandy Hook shooting left 20 children, six staff members, and the shooter's mother dead. The shooter killed himself before police arrived.

Kelly posted a teaser of the interview on her Twitter account.

According to the New York Daily News, Jones said Monday on his radio program he believes Sandy Hook was not a hoax, but that the media "exacerbated" the tragedy.

He later posted a tweet that called on NBC to cancel the interview "for misrepresenting my views on Sandy Hook."

Kelly defended the interview, saying her role as a journalist is to "shine a light."
