Megyn Kelly Wants to EXPOSE Alex Jones, Not Legitimize Him

Megyn Kelly's upcoming interview with Infowars host Alex Jones has caused a firestorm this week, complete with sponsors pulling ads, the media crying foul and now Kelly being disinvited to host a charity event. Kelly was scheduled to emcee Sandy Hook Promise’s annual Promise Champions Gala on June 14.

When did journalists doing their actual job become controversial?

"As far as I know, Megyn Kelly has been the only one that has really pushed him on this. Everybody else has done profiles, but they have not pushed him on this. She pushed him on this," Glenn said on radio Tuesday.

Kelly issued a statement following the news she'd been disinvited from the gala:

I understand and respect the decision of the event organizers but I’m of course disappointed that I won’t be there to support them on Wednesday night. I find Alex Jones’s suggestion that Sandy Hook was ‘a hoax’ as personally revolting as every other rational person does.

President Trump, by praising and citing him, appearing on his show, and giving him White House press credentials, has helped elevate Jones, to the alarm of many. Our goal in sitting down with him was to shine a light --- as journalists are supposed to do --- on this influential figure, and yes, to discuss the considerable falsehoods he has promoted with near impunity.

"I don't have White House press credentials. He does. He does. Shouldn't that guy be examined?" Glenn asked.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Bill O'Reilly is going to be joining us at the top of the hour. We also have some commentary on -- on this Megyn Kelly stuff with Alex Jones. She has just been disinvited to be the host of a Sandy Hook charity gala.

JEFFY: What!

GLENN: That's supposed to happen next Wednesday because she was exposing -- now, listen to the logic of this. Because she's exposing the guy -- just like the New York Times has, just like New York magazine has, just like we have, exposing Alex Jones to be the lunatic that he is, that says he's -- he's, by the way, asking for this, not to play on NBC, because he said he was taken out of context on Sandy Hook. I want to play the context of what he said on Sandy Hook. Here it is.

ALEX: They have staged events before. But then you learn the school had been closed and reopened. And you got video of the kids going in circles, in and out of the building. And they don't call the rescue choppers for two hours. Then they tear the building down and seal it. And they get caught using blue screens. And an email by Bloomberg comes out in the lawsuit, where he's telling people get ready in the next 24 hours to capitalize on a shooting. Yeah, so Sandy Hook is a synthetic, completely fake, with actors --

GLENN: I haven't seen that.

Okay. Stop. As far as I know, Megyn Kelly has been the only one that has really pushed him on this. Everybody else has done profiles. But they have not pushed him on this. She pushed him on this. So far, a sponsor has asked to be moved off the show. For what? For TIME Magazine putting Adolf Hitler on the cover and saying he was the man of the year in 1938 -- yes, he was the man of the year in 1938.

To be able to have a logical, rational discussion with the irrational is important. Not when he's a nobody. But when the president of the United States has given him press credentials and made him into a legitimate guy.

I don't have White House press credentials. He does. He does. Shouldn't that guy be examined?

STU: I mean, this exact show with this exact host, two weeks ago, interviewed Vladimir Putin. I can't stand Alex Jones. Other than the fact that he's hilarious, I never want to hear a word from him. But he's certainly not as bad as Vladimir Putin.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Why on earth would you want to move your advertising out of this, when clearly -- and in her statement, she's --

GLENN: This is her statement, from being disinvited. We're going to get to the Russia stuff here in a second. Listen to this.

STU: I understand and respect the decision of the event organizers, but, of course, I'm disappointed that I won't be there to support them on Wednesday night. I find Alex Jones' suggestion that Sandy Hooks was a hoax as personally revolting as every other rational person does.

GLENN: She has done a lot for Sandy Hook.

STU: Yeah. It left me and many other Americans asking the very question that prompted this interview -- which is a completely reasonable question -- how does Jones, who traffics in these outrageous conspiracy theories -- have the respect of the president of the United States and a growing audience of millions? President Trump by praising and citing him, appearing on his show, and giving him White House press credentials has helped elevate Jones to the alarm of many. Our goal, in sitting down with him, was to shine a light, as journalists are supposed to do, on this influential figure and, yes, to discuss the considerable falsehoods he has promoted with near impunity.

How could you possibly pull out of an interview with a person who is taking that approach to Alex Jones? I mean, unless you're an Alex Jones fan -- I mean, is JPMorgan Chase -- are they just huge fans of Alex Jones, and they're just like, well, I don't like that they're attacking his Sandy Hook conspiracy, that we really believe. Because that's the only reason you would want to pull out of that interview.

GLENN: No, the only reason -- that's the logical reason. The emotional reason is, the families are against this interview. And nobody wants to stand against the families.

But the families -- it's the reason why we have a jury of our peers and the reason why we have a judge give the sentencing to the -- to the criminal and not the victim. In other countries, the victim gets to sentence. That's all emotional.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: There has to be a line of separation.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
