Local NBC Affiliate In Connecticut Will NOT Air Megyn Kelly’s Interview With Alex Jones — GOOD!

Good for NBC's Connecticut affiliate here.

The local television station owned by NBC that covers the area including Newtown, Connecticut, will NOT be broadcasting Megyn Kelly's highly controversial interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

In an internal memo at the company that was obtained by the Associated Press on Friday, station executives at WVIT NBC Connecticut made the decision to not air the interview after hearing from employees, viewers, and families that were so horribly affected by the awful tragedy that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School there in 2012.

Jones has said repeatedly on the record that the killing of those 26 people -- including many small children -- was a hoax. Kelly has drawn a ton of criticism for even interviewing him, but now at least it seems one station has found a solution.

Good!

All in all, with Kelly's ratings in the toilet and this controversy rung squarely around her neck, it really hasn't been a great start to her career at NBC.

Of course, it pales in comparison to the pain Jones' conspiracy theories have brought to Sandy Hook families.

Hopefully more NBC affiliates across the country take the lead from this one and adjust their programming accordingly.

John McCain Just Called Donald Trump A Dictator!

Now, Senator John McCain has seen a lot in his day -- but he's not exactly overlooking the dangers Donald Trump is posing to America, and our First Amendment, and the freedom of the press.

Speaking to host Chuck Todd on NBC's Meet The Press today, Senator McCain didn't hold back in calling out that terrible Trump tweet about the press becoming the enemy of the American people.

Video: Trump's Ridiculous Press Conference Goes To Late Night!

You remember that tweet Trump sent yesterday, right? It's this one (below):

Well, that attitude didn't sit so well with McCain, who went off on Trump in the interview.

McCain laid it all out there about Trump's dictatorial tendencies, too, with the Arizona Senator saying to Todd:

"I am afraid that we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time [without a free press]. That's how dictators get started ... When you look at history, the first thing that dictators do is shut down the press. And I'm not saying that President Trump is trying to be a dictator. I'm just saying we need to learn the lessons of history."

Uh-huh. Sure you're not saying President Trump is trying to be a dictator.

Suuuuuuuuuuure.

But seriously -- Senator McCain is right.

Trump is a horrifying wanna-be dictator, and the only thing that'll keep him from doing it -- besides his own gross incompetence as President -- is more people like McCain calling Trump out for the person he's become.

#Resist.

She posted :

Sony Pictures TV, Original Film, and AMBI are producing.

Adele Rocks NYC! [PHOTOS]

Adele‘s just like the gift that keeps on giving.

We know. We’ve raped the replay button on that new “25” record too.

But before her American fans press it again, NBC treated them to a “Live In New York City” special, where the diva performed and showed them her human side!

“I love you, but you scare me,” she tells the roaring crowd, who are intent on listening on her hit-filled set.

She also revealed that she sings her smash “Someone Like You” differently now, especially with her special someone Simon Konecki among the crowd.

“I don’t sing this from the same place anymore. I sing it from an amazing place because of my man,” the 27-year-old gushes.

We couldn’t be more happier!

‘SNL’ Harnessed the Donald Trump Hate for Ratings

donald-trump-snl

Donald Trump hosted Saturday Night Live last night giving the show its best ratings since 2012. Not a surprise considering everyone wants to see this doofus fail for being an asshat. Those 200 protestors also helped get some publicity.

How well did the episode do? Trump got the network a 6.6 household rating which obviously means nothing to people who have real lives. To put that in perspective, the season’s previous high was their 41st season premiere hosted by Miley Cyrus with a guest appearance by Hilary Clinton. Their previous high was an episode in January 2012 hosted by Charles Barkley with musical guest Kelly Clarkson. Sadly, this could go down as Trump’s greatest contribution to society.

As for the episode itself, it wasn’t good. The NYT described it as more lifeless than his hairpiece. SNL seemed to play it safe with Trump who said he could “take a joke”. However, Trump himself said he had vetoed some material he found “too risqué”, meaning “wah wah, I don’t like you making fun of me.”

Of course, SNL wouldn’t be SNL if they didn’t parody Drake’s “Hotline Bling” video featuring a horrid cameo by Donald Trump. Yep, Trump is very punchable.
