Alex Jones is threatening to release a secretly recorded conversation between himself and Megyn Kelly before their interview airs on NBC.
The Infowars founder took to Twitter to post a recording of an alleged pre-interview phone call between himself and Kelly, the Daily Mail reported. He said he released the audio because he believes Kelly will edit the interview to make him look crazy.
In the video, a woman is heard saying:
All I can do is give you my word and tell you if there's one thing about me, I do what I say I'm gonna do, and I don't double-cross.
You know you just became very fascinating to me. I just always thought you were this maybe, one-dimensional guy, like this is your thing…
My goal is for your listeners and the left - you know, who will be watching some on NBC - to say, 'Wow, that was really interesting.'
And then the next time I wanna get somebody, they're gonna say, 'Look what you did to Alex Jones!' It's not going to be some gotcha hit piece, I promise you that.
Kelly has faced a lot of backlash from both sides of the political spectrum for interviewing Jones, who is known to be a Sandy Hook conspiracy theorist. She was fired as the host of a Sandy Hook charity event, and JP Morgan Chase dropped their adverts from NBC until after the interview airs on June 18.
But Jones believes Kelly will edit the video to make him look crazy. He plans on releasing an unedited version of the interview.
"Tonight at Infowars.com, we're going to have the full behind-the-scenes with Megyn Kelly released," Jones said in a video posted on his Twitter account. "God, she was like, 'I want to get steaks with you, I'm obsessed with you, oh my god,' you know, wailing around in her seat - it was all c**p.
"And I knew it was all a lie. I said Sandy Hook happened, everything, she wouldn’t even put it in the promo pieces.
"And so we’re going to release - oh yeah - we're gonna release the pre-interview.
"And then when they put their fraud out on Sunday - which I've asked them not to air because they're misrepresenting who I am and saying I'm as bad as Saddam Hussein of Jeffrey Dahmer, or, god, Charles Manson... It's crazy.
"We've got the whole interviews here, when she was here from 9:30 in the morning till 11 at night, we got it all. And so you're going to hear what I actually said."
In the promo video, Kelly asks Jones about his remarks on Sandy Hook being a hoax. Jones said his answers were poorly edited and not his actual responses to some of the questions asked.
"It has all the markings of a PR stunt," Jones told The Hollywood Reporter. "They just want me to be the devil because I'm the alternative media... Fake news lives at NBC.
"They basically made me look like a Halloween character."
Jones isn't the only one lambasting the media. President Donald Trump took to Twitter on June 16 to give his daily assessment of the fake news media.
"The Fake News Media hates when I use what has turned out to be my very powerful Social Media - over 100 million people! I can go around them," the president tweeted.
"Despite the phony Witch Hunt going on in America, the economic & jobs numbers are great," Trump added. "Regulations way down, jobs and enthusiasm way up!"
