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.

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.
