NBC's Megyn Kelly defended her heavily criticized interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones by saying at the start of the Sunday broadcast of her program that the man who called a 2012 CT school massacre a hoax has the attention of President Donald Trump. She has defended her decision by noting that President Donald Trump has praised Jones and appeared on his radio program. I've watched the footage. AFHV boasted an audience of 3.7 million viewers to Ms. Kelly's 3.5 million.
Jones, for his part, live streamed a response to the interview - watched at its peak by almost 20,000 people on YouTube - slamming the episode as "fake news".

On Father's Day evening, ABC's repeat episode of "America's Funniest Home Videos" (AFHV) outperformed NBC's "Megyn Kelly", the subject of a firestorm of controversy due to interview subject Alex Jones, Entertainment Weekly reported Monday.

Lawyers who represent 12 people who lost loved ones at Sandy Hook urged NBC News officials not to air the interview.
Kelly challenged Jones from the start, introducing him as a "radical conspiracy theorist" and promising to confront him on his "notorious lie" about Sandy Hook. Relatives of some of the victims also spoke in the Sunday segment on NBC. The two frequently interrupted each other as Kelly kept asking if he would admit to his wrongdoing and a visibly tense Jones kept deflecting her questions, blaming the media for distorting his remarks or veering between acknowledging and disputing the tragedy.
Merely sitting down with Jones did not go over well with Sandy Hook families and a few advertisers.
