WATCH: Megyn Kelly Promo Shows She Won't Be Giving Alex Jones a Free Pass

Oh boy, Megyn Kelly is taking heat from both sides of the aisle.

The host of NBC's Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly announced she will sit down with controversial radio host Alex Jones in an upcoming interview. The news received strong reactions --- from both the left and right. The left accused Kelly of normalizing a conspiracy theorist like Jones while the right finds fault with branding him a "conservative."

"Here's the thing. A good journalist shuts up, asks the questions and lets them hang themselves," Glenn said Monday on radio.

One listen to the released promo confirms Kelly has provided Jones plenty of rope:

Megyn Kelly's interview with Alex Jones airs Sunday, June 18 at 7pm ET during Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly on NBC.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Oh, boy. And Megyn Kelly is in trouble now on both sides of the aisle.

PAT: Which is weird. I don't get that.

GLENN: I don't get this either.

Okay. So Huffington Post, you would expect: How can you give a quarter to somebody like Alex Jones? Okay. All right. I get that.

But now the right is also saying: How can give you quarter to Alex Jones?

STU: Is that what they're saying?

GLENN: RedState is. They're saying that their -- what she's doing is legitimizing him.

STU: Legitimizing him. And I think there was an argument to be made about legitimizing Alex Jones.

PAT: Making fun of somebody, are you legitimizing him? And I don't know she's necessarily doing that. But she's providing him the forum to make fun of himself. He's his own worst enemy.

GLENN: Here's the thing: A good journalist shuts up. Asks the questions and shuts up. And lets them hang themselves. I want you just to hear the promo and tell me after hearing the promo for Megyn Kelly that this is going to be an interview that there's no hanging of one's self in.

ALEX: His authoritarianism knows humanity's awakening. And it's moving against humanity on a planetary scale. The great global battle of the future of our species is being fought right now.

MEGYN: They call you the most paranoid man in America. Is that true?

ALEX: Absolutely not. A paranoid person would be hiding out in their house, not venturing out in public. I go out there on the street and battle Black Lives Matter. The Communists. Point-blank range.

MEGYN: We talked controversies and conspiracies. 9/11.

ALEX: Now, 9/11 was an inside job. When I say inside job, it means criminal elements in our government working with Saudi Arabia and others.

PAT: Right.

ALEX: Wanted to frame Iraq for it. Just a fact. Just a fact.

MEGYN: Sandy Hook.

ALEX: Well, Sandy Hook is complex because I've had debates where -- with devil's advocate, said the whole story is true. Then I've had debates where I've said that none of it is true.

PAT: Oh, well, if you've taken both sides of the issue, then I guess that's okay.

GLENN: In debates. Okay. It's complicated. Because I've had debates where I've said the whole thing is true and the whole thing is not true.

PAT: Complicating the issue by taking both sides of it.

STU: Well, he said devil's advocates arguments. But like --

PAT: That's baloney. That's absolute bullcrap.

STU: First of all, that's an absolute lie he's covering. But beyond that, it's like, do you need a devil's advocate on whether Sandy Hook occurred?

PAT: No. No, you do not. Only in Alex Jones' world.

STU: Is there a need for it? Yeah.

GLENN: I've had debates, played devil's advocate, where I said the sun is an actual god. And I made that argument.

STU: And I made that argument.

GLENN: But I've also said the sun is just a giant flaming orb of glass.

MEGYN: When you say parents faked their children's death, people get very angry.

ALEX: Oh, I know. But they don't get angry about a half a million dead Iraqis from the sanctions or they don't get angry --

MEGYN: That's a dodge.

PAT: That's a dodge. Yeah.

GLENN: And a Buick. I mean, what -- what the hell is that -- they don't angry about all the sanctions.

PAT: What about the Black Plague that killed over 30 million people in Europe in the 1600s? What about that? How come nobody screamed about that? Nobody is talking about it. Why aren't you covering that --

GLENN: Wow. Because you just said --

PAT: What the hell. What does that have to do with anything?

GLENN: You just said parents faked the death of their child.

PAT: Yeah, well, that -- what about -- what about the Armenian crisis in the 1917 era.

(laughter)

PAT: Anybody talking about that?

GLENN: Wow. No.

PAT: That's crazy.

GLENN: But wait. There's more.

PAT: There's more.

ALEX: It was not a dodge. The media never covers all the evil wars.

MEGYN: That doesn't excuse what you did and said about Newton. You know it.

GLENN: Stop for a second. I just want to say -- again, the reason why I'm playing this is because both the left and the right is saying that she is legitimizing him.

STU: You're right. Letting him hang himself, but asking -- and pushing him back --

GLENN: But you're, still, okay. He sounds a little crazy. But it's on NBC, right? This is just the promo. Listen.

ALEX: -- looked all the angles of Newton. And I made my statements long before the media even picked up on it. We didn't get any of the really important stuff.

MEGYN: What do you mean? We talked about all the important stuff.

ALEX: Well, here's the big one they always make fun of me -- you probably want to throw this in there. Thirty years ago, they began creating animal/human hybrids. Isn't that the story Megyn Kelly should be doing?

PAT: It's huge. She isn't covering that.

STU: Why isn't she covering that?

PAT: I will say, he's right about that. She's not covering it.

STU: Is it possible she is one, and that's why she's hiding it?

PAT: I think it's likely.

GLENN: So the question is -- the question is, why on God's green earth would you -- would you bring up animal/human hybrids?

STU: Out of nowhere.

GLENN: Out of nowhere.

PAT: Bizarre.

GLENN: That's something that your PR people say, look, we've made a deal. She's not going to bring up the animal/human hybrid thing, okay? If she asks about it, just shut your mouth.

STU: He brought that up in the press conference after his trial too. The same thing.

JEFFY: Yes, he did.

PAT: It's something he believes very deeply.

GLENN: Okay. Well, there's your legitimate interview coming Sunday with Megyn Kelly.

BIGGER than Tiananmen Square? Here's what the China protests are REALLY about

China has been locking its citizens down for over two years under its zero-COVID policy, and it's becoming more and more clear that this isn’t just about COVID but something much more serious: slavery and control. Now it looks like many citizens have had enough. Protests are currently spreading throughout China and, unlike during the Tiananmen Square protests, the word is getting out.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck looked into the protests' "real motivations," explained how they’re different from the 1989 protests at Tiananmen Square, and predicted how these events are a "game-changer for the entire world."
