‘Kelly’s job as a journalist — I mean, she interviewed Vladimir Putin, and he’s a horror….I think Alex Jones is disgusting’

Joy Behar Says Megyn Kelly Should Go Ahead with Alex Jones Interview: ‘He Deserves to be Vilified’ (Mediaite)

On Thursday, The View hosts were split over Megyn Kelly‘s soon-to-be-aired interview with controversial commentator Alex Jones. Joy Behar and Jedediah Bila both thought Jones was an “awful” figure, but one still worth interviewing. Sunny Hostin, on the other hand, criticized Kelly’s decision to interview him.

Whoopi Goldberg introduced the Kelly/Jones subject and pointed out that “the New York Times interviewed him recently. He was booked here at one point at The View; but then, he canceled, and he’s not going to be rescheduled.”

Goldberg continued by wondering, “Is Megyn right when she says, you know, you can’t just interview the good guys? She wants to expose the garbage being spewed by a guy who has the President’s ear. Is there value to that?”
