MIKE CERNOVICH (CO-HOST): [NBC is] trying to get rid of [Megyn Kelly], and the Murdoch sons are so beta-eyes that they're willing to potentially buy out Megyn Kelly's contract to bring her back onto Fox News.
ALEX JONES (CO-HOST): Because they thought, "Hey, she already tried to bring down Fox News, she worked for us well, she helped change her story about [former Fox News CEO Roger] Ailes. He's out of the way now." But Fox is now sinking into the mud, they're in total panic mode. They're thinking, "Maybe she'll work better with this audience."
I was at the RNC meeting with people at the Ritz-Carlton.
JONES: I was talking -- I mean, I was meeting with the executives.
JONES: Hell, I mean Roger Ailes, before he died, was calling me wanting to launch a network.
CERNOVICH: That's actually -- people don't know that he wanted to do a new TV network, Roger Ailes did. I don't think that's public yet though.
JONES: Yeah, well, whatever. And that's why they're so pissed. They've got all the phones tapped, they know what's going on. Don't worry, we don't need Roger Ailes to launch this.
