Kelly's Alex Jones report seen by just 3.5 million viewers

The fringe element that Jones represents needs to be understood, which isn't the same as needing to be condoned.

Rather than let Jones run away with it, "Sunday Night" let him show himself to be an impertinent, ill-informed, foulmouthed, possibly deranged egomaniac with a forehead constantly beaded in sweat.

Multiple media critics praised the editing of Megyn Kelly's interview with Alex Jones, more so than Kelly's performance in the interview, according to The Washington Free Beacon.

Sheriff David Clarke Withdraws Acceptance of Homeland Security Gig
The Milwaukee County Sheriff reportedly rescinded his acceptance of the position, which he was slated to begin in June. Trump and Clarke met in Wisconsin on Tuesday and discussed other roles he could fill to help advance the Trump agenda.

Reactions to the interview varied widely, with some continuing to argue that giving Jones a platform was the wrong idea.

It's hard to say if anyone started with Kelly and then switched when she was done.

Jones has claimed 9/11 was an inside job, perpetrated the debunked Pizzagate story - though he has since apologized for doing so - and has enraged parents of the children murdered in the Sandy Hook massacre by calling it a hoax. The controversy escalated after Jones leaked a portion of a phone conversation with Kelly to his InfoWars website ahead of Sunday's broadest. He leaked audio of his pre-production discussions with Kelly, hoping to create suspicion that Kelly's real objective for wanting to interview him was to do a hit piece on him.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein says there's no cause to fire Mueller
Spicer had said that Ruddy was at the White House Monday to meet with White House aides, but did not speak with the president. Trump, Ruddy said, "was looking at [Mueller] potentially to become the next Federal Bureau of Investigation director".

"Some thought we shouldn't broadcast this interview because his baseless allegations aren't just offensive, they're risky". It showed viewers how Infowars grew and sustains itself by peddling right-wing merchandise and Jones-endorsed dietary supplements. By contrast "60 Minutes" had 5.31 million.

Even Tom Brokaw was brought on at the end to add a gravitas to the proceedings, just in case you hadn't made up your mind about Jones to that point. What the former "Nightly News" anchor said was perfectly fine, but it felt like an additional level of cover - a window, perhaps, into just how nervous NBC brass were after a week's worth of second-guessing.

Long-running CBS newsmagazine "60 Minutes" easily beat out the former Fox New anchor with 5.3 million viewers, even though the story selection was hardly at attention-grabbing - the program ran stories on first responders in war-torn Syria, chess-playing teens in rural MS and how small, cash-starved countries are effectively selling citizenship for revenue.
