NBC anchor Megyn Kelly's upcoming interview with "InfoWars" host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has resulted in a firestorm of criticism, notably from the families of Sandy Hook shooting victims.
Families of those killed in the Sandy Hook shooting condemned the interview, saying it gives a platform to a conspiracy theorist who encourages others to "harass" families reeling from the tragedy.

Her next segment with Jones is expected to include conversation about "controversies and conspiracies," according to a preview of the interview Kelly posted on Twitter on Sunday.
Next Sunday, I sit down with conservative radio host @RealAlexJones to discuss controversies and conspiracies #SundayNight June 18 on NBC pic.twitter.com/7bVz6Fobf5 In the interview, Jones calls 9/11 an "inside job," and directly addressed parents of children who died in the Sandy Hook mass shooting, saying "none of it's true." "Well, I know, but they don't get angry about the half million dead Iraqis from the sanctions, or they don't get angry about," Jones said, before Kelly interjected with: "That's a dodge."
