Fox News host Sean Hannity is demanding that NBC release the full tapes of Megyn Kelly's interview with Infowars host Alex Jones.
Kelly's interview with Jones aired Sunday, but Hannity said the complete and unedited tapes should be posted on NBC's website for the world to see.
"In all the too common style of the mainstream, left-wing, destroy-Trump media, the interview, OK'd by NBC, was highly edited," Hannity said. "Now, it raises a question: Do networks now, in the day and age of having websites, do they have an obligation to release the full interview?
"After the hours of video they apparently taped, NBC only released a few minutes of it. Now, Jones has called on NBC to release the full unedited version of the interview. And, by the way, in this case, I have to agree.
"Whether you agree or disagree with (Jones), this is the right thing to do. I want to be very clear: I am in no way, as some in social media suggested, being critical of my colleague, and somebody I've been friends with, Megyn Kelly. She is a journalist. She was doing her job."
Hannity maintained he was "sick and tired" of the mainstream media editing interviews to fit a predetermined narrative.
And he added: "Again, I'm not saying that Megyn Kelly did this. As a matter of fact, I know she didn't.
"I really do hate to disappoint all of you people in the media that would love to see a battle and fight break out between Megyn Kelly [and me]. That's not happening. I truly wish her the best.
"I do believe NBC News should release the tapes, the full tapes of the Alex Jones interview. Let Americans decide."
The hourlong "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly" program was strongly criticized before it aired because Jones had in the past called the 2012 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut a hoax, Fox News pointed out.
