To prove to her formerly loyal Fox News following that she hasn’t gone soft following her move to jihadi-loving liberal fake news purveyor NBC, Megyn Kelly’s decided to make one of her very first guests Alex Jones. You know, the Infowars founder and Trump backer who doesn’t think there’s been a single mass atrocity on U.S. soil that wasn’t cooked up by the CIA to take away our guns and enslave us. This puts Jamie Dimon and the whole JPMorgan Chase team in something of a bind. Jamie D. has bent over backwards trying to stay on the president’s good side, which has put him decidedly on the bad side of those who are less than enamored with the commander-in-chief. So the appearance of one of those feel-good Chase ads immediately preceding the sight of Jones’ chubby, spittle-and-sweat covered visage saying there’s something fishy about those 20 dead grade schoolers might be taken, you know, the wrong way.

J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. has asked for its local TV ads and digital ads to be removed from Ms. Kelly’s show and from all NBC news programming until after the show airs, according to a person familiar with the matter. The company doesn’t want any of its ads to appear adjacent to any promotions for the interview, the person added….

On Monday, Kristin Lemkau, J.P. Morgan’s chief marketing officer, questioned why Ms. Kelly would conduct the interview. “As an advertiser, I’m repulsed that @megynkelly would give a second of airtime to someone who says Sandy Hook and Aurora are hoaxes,” she tweeted.
