Kelly-Jones Updates

A Connecticut NBC affiliate won't air Megyn Kelly's interview of Alex Jones, and Maureen Ryan argues NBC shouldn't air it in the first place. Sandy Hook families are threatening legal action. NBC News insists the show will go on despite the controversy, though there's word that the segment has been overhauled in light of the backlash.

For his part, Jones has scooped Kelly by releasing pre-interview audio of Kelly courting him for the interview. Charlie Warzel says this is another case of the mainstream media not being able to navigate the new troll order.

Multiple writers are saying this debacle also shows the mistakes NBC News has made with Kelly -- Michael Schneider, Dylan Byers, and Grynbaum and Koblin -- while Jason Damata says no one should be surprised by what's playing out.
