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.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
