(Page Six) As families of the Sandy Hook victims continue to pressure NBC to ax Megyn Kelly’s Sunday interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, the network has been holding crisis meetings about how to handle the backlash.
Insiders told us that staff were in panicked meetings all day on Monday. “It’s a s?-?-?t show. No one wants to withstand a whole week of criticism over this. There are a number of people who want to pull the interview.”
But another source told us NBC needs the controversy to shake up their Sunday night and to bring new viewers. “No one expected sponsors to pull out, but this is why they hired Megyn. They expect to lose and gain viewers and they want the buzz.”
