Last Sunday’s exposé of Alex Jones on NBC’s Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly was considered by many to be a tasteless and heavily edited attempt to smear the Infowars host and vocal supporter of Donald Trump. Despite a week of heavy promotion, the segment backfired – sending Kelly’s ratings further into the toilet a week after her embarrassing interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin – an encounter which director Oliver Stone said she was ‘not prepared for.‘
This lack of preparation was obvious in the Jones interview – as Kelly and NBC aired footage of the grieving father of a Sandy Hook massacre victim which contains a major contradiction to the official story.
Prominently featured in the exposé is Neil Heslin – a father of one of the victims. During his interview with Megyn Kelly, Heslin described what happened the day of the shooting when 20 year old Adam Lanza murdered 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary school before committing suicide.
I dropped him off at 9:04. That’s when we dropped him off at school with his book bag. Hours later I was picking’ him up in a body bag. I lost my son. I buried my son. I held my son with a bullet hole through his head.
Except this does not comport with the official story.
Jim Fetzer, Professor Emeritus at the University of Minnesota who wrote a book claiming Sandy Hook was staged, notes that based on the facts of the case, Heslin’s statement that he ‘held his son with a bullet hole through his head’ could not have happened. According to Coroner Wayne Carver, M.D., the parents of the victims weren’t allowed to see their children’s bodies – and were instead shown pictures to identify the deceased. Anderson Cooper even interviewed the parents of one of the victims about not being able to see their child.
While it’s entirely possible that Mr. Heslin had access to his son after the shooting, given the highly contentious nature of the Sandy Hook massacre in which every aspect of the case has been pored over and dissected – it was incumbent upon Megyn Kelly and NBC to familiarize themselves with all sides of the argument so they could have identified and explained Heslin’s statement.
By airing such an obvious contradiction to the official narrative, Megyn Kelly and NBC have lent credibility to Fetzer and other conspiracy researchers who often point to inconsistent reports from the MSM to support their theories.
She lied… While Megyn Kelly can be heard weeks before the interview on a leaked recording promising Jones that the segment wouldn’t be a ‘hit job,’ a promo released by NBC revealed she lied – as it was obvious Kelly was going to focus on statements made on Infowars about the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, MA committed by Adam Lanza.
