Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has released a secretly-taped audio Thursday of what appeared to be an off-the-record conversation with former Fox News host and current NBC host Megyn Kelly. Jones, whose interview with Kelly, is set to air Sunday, threatened in the same video that he will release the unedited version of the interview as he believes that the one which will be aired might misrepresent him.

The Infowars founder also said in the Twitter video that although he had never secretly recorded any journalist in 22 years, he had to do this time as he knew that the interview which will be aired would be a "fraud" and a "lie."

Jones also mocked Kelly in the video and said that before the interview she told how obsessed she was with him. Jones said that he knew that his version of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre will be misrepresented and hence he will release the original interview video on Infowars so that viewers can see what he actually said to Kelly.

Despite criticism over Jones' interview and advertisers pulling out of Kelly's show, the head of NBC News said Tuesday that the network would move forward with plans to air Kelly's interview with Jones. Although, it was not known how many companies actually pulled ads from this week's "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly," financial firm JPMorgan Chase was the only one to say it was doing so publicly.

JPMorgan Chase's Chief Marketing Officer, Kristin Lemkau‏, tweeted questioning Kelly that how can an interview of someone who believed that Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax, be aired.

Kelly's plans to broadcast the interview with Jones, Sunday, also cost her the role that she had as an emcee for Sandy Hook Promise, which was created to bring awareness to gun violence prevention after the 2012 massacre.

Jones had previously claimed the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook in Newton, Connecticut that killed 20 children was staged. He also maintained the alleged fake attack was carried out by the government.

Amid all these backlash, Liz Cole, the executive producer of Kelly’s Sunday night NBC News show, told CNN Monday: "He's a controversial figure for sure, but as journalists it's our job to interview news makers and people of influence no matter how abhorrent their views may be...He is someone who is worthy of examination, by sitting down with him, there's value in that."

In an interview with the Associated Press on Tuesday, Kelly defended her interview with Jones. She said: "What I think we're doing is journalism...The bottom line is that while it's not always popular, it's important. I would submit to you that neither I nor NBC News has elevated Alex Jones in any way. He's been elevated by 5 or 6 million viewers or listeners, and by the president of the United States. As you know, journalists don't get the choice over who has power or influence in our country."

Kelly who worked for Fox News for more than a decade, moved to NBC News earlier this year. After the debut episode of "Sunday Night" drew about six million viewers on June 4, the show's second episode drew just 3.6 million viewers, less than half the number drawn by a repeat episode of CBS' "60 Minutes," Fox News reported.
