It seems that Megyn Kelly thinks the best way to get ratings, is talk to villains and hucksters.
Kelly's show has not even hit NBC's air and reports are that Kelly has scored interviews with President Trump's BFF Vladimir Putin and Infowars host Alex Jones.
It seems Kelly is using he right wing ties from her Fox News days to help kick off her new show on NBC.
Page Six says that Kelly is heading to Austin, Texas, to interview the controversial host Alex Jones. “She’s coming to town next week,” Jones told former Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone on Jones’ YouTube show.
“It’s taped,” Jones said on Thursday. “They’re going to be able to edit however they want. The producer was so over-the-top fake nice . . . Megyn’s like, ‘We’re going to get dinner — a nice big steak!’ I said, ‘Megyn, you don’t like me, stop acting like it.’ And she said, ‘I do.’ ”
Jones, who added that Kelly’s pitch for the interview was an “off-the-record” conversation, continued, “I want it known, I’m not doing the interview because she’s a pretty girl. I’m doing it because I can’t be a wimp and turn it down.”
The conspiracy theorist — who also talked about something called the “Z-Shield,” a “game-changing toxic metal and chemical-defense support formula” — said that NBC “will act like they’re your friend and every time screw you over . . . I know I am walking into a trap.”
NBC declined to comment.
Maybe at some point Kelly can interview some decent people as well. Then again, maybe that won't bring in the ratings.
