(INTELLIHUB) — Megyn Kelly’s Sunday newsmagazine show on NBC has tanked since its debut two weeks ago, drawing only 3.6 million viewers, a 42% decline compared to the week prior when the over-famed TV anchor interviewed Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow.
Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly is set to air its next biggest interview on June 18 featuring Infowars founder and radio talk show host Alex Jones.
The interview is considered controversial and may have already landed Kelly in hot water after deep pocket advertiser JP Morgan Chase pulled local TV and digital ads from Kelly’s show.
On Monday, JP Morgan’s chief marketing officer, Kristin Lemkau, tweeted:
“As an advertiser, I’m repulsed that @megynkelly would give a second of airtime to someone who says Sandy Hook and Aurora are hoaxes. Why?”

The shitstorm even prompted Alex Jones himself to chime in in on the matter who appears to be mad about Kelly’s misrepresentation of his views on the Sandy Hook school shooting which aired in an NBC promo for Sunday’s show.
On Monday Jones tweeted:
“I’m calling for
@megynkelly to cancel the airing of our interview for misrepresenting my views on Sandy Hook.”

Jones said on air that he knew what he was getting into when Kelly called him for an interview and that he just had to see it with his “own eyes.”
“In the interests of the families of Sandy Hook, I agree with them, that this piece not air because it misrepresents what I stand for and what I’ve said and uses me as a sock puppet or a straw man, out of context with edited video, very deceptively, to hurt peoples feelings and to drive a wedge in this country,” the radio talk show host said.
Now other outlets, such as ABC News, have jumped on the bandwagon reporting on the “furry and fallout” all the while attacking Jones who’s agency recently received White House press credentials.
