Alex Jones threatens Megyn KellyAlex Jones, conspiracy theorist and host of “InfoWars,” on Saturday intensified his call for NBC News to release a full, unedited recording of his controversial interview due to air Sunday on the network’s “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” program.

During a 15-minute rant posted to the live-streaming app Periscope, Jones said that if NBC did not publish at least about 100 minutes of his unedited interview on their website, he would release eight or more hours of secret audio recordings and footage he has of Kelly and her news team.

Megyn Kelly Exposed by Alex Jones in Leaked Audio Recordings

Megyn Kelly exposed by Alex JonesAlex Jones, the conspiracy-theorizing host of the Infowars website whose controversial interview with NBC’s Megyn Kelly is set to air Sunday night, has fallen back to the argument of every disgruntled interviewee: “They took me out of context.”

Except in this case, Jones may cause serious trouble for Kelly, who he apparently took the precaution of covertly taping in pre-interview calls and, he claims, the interview itself, which he is now publicizing on Infowars and his YouTube channel. And in those clandestine clips, the former Fox News host appears to promise to go easy on him in the interview.

Fox News drops 'Fair and Balanced' slogan: report

FOX news drops sloganFox News is dropping its legendary trademark slogan “Fair and Balanced,” New York Magazine reported Wednesday.

A Fox News spokesperson confirmed to the magazine that the network is no longer using the slogan, but that the decision won’t impact programming or editorial decisions.

The catchphrase, coined by late Fox founder Roger Ailes, has been used at Fox since its founding in 1996.

TVNL Comment:  We have ridiculed the FOX News slogan for years.  News cannot, ever, be fair or balanced.  News is not up for discussion or debate..  Journalists bear the responsibility of reporting facts and verified information to the public.  Commentary and opinion are one thing.  NEWS is another.  Let's hope FOX learns a lesson with this change and earns some credibility.  Don't bet the ranch on it.

NPR journalists killed in Afghanistan in 2016NPR journalists David Gilkey and Zabihullah Tamanna died a year ago this week, ambushed on a remote road in southern Afghanistan while on a reporting assignment traveling with the Afghan National Army.

Since their deaths, NPR has been investigating what happened, and today we are sharing new information about what we learned. It's a very different story from what we originally understood.

The two men were not the random victims of bad timing in a dangerous place, as initial reports indicated. Rather, the journalists' convoy was specifically targeted by attackers who had been tipped off to the presence of Americans in Afghanistan's Helmand province.
