NBC Under Fire Over Megyn Kelly
NBC’s storied news division is coming under heavy fire for what its critics say is a botched handling of its new hire Megyn Kelly’s interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones – and for its overall rollout of Megyn Kelly as a broadcast network news star.

NBC is determined to air the Jones interview Sunday evening despite enormous pressure to cancel it from parents of children who died in the Sandy Hook massacre, which Jones has previously alleged was faked.

NBC News Chairman Andy Lack, 70, has said the story on "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly" will be edited with the sensitivity of its critics in mind.

Jones is the far-right radio host whose allegations about Sandy Hook being a hoax have sparked widespread outrage. A deranged gunman killed 20 first-graders and six educators at the Newtown, Connecticut school in December 2012.
