Sandy Hook mom shreds Megyn Kelly’s Alex Jones interview: ‘Evil doesn’t need another platform’

Published

on

Megyn Kelly’s decision to interview Alex Jones for her new show on NBC is drawing fierce criticism from many quarters, including a mother whose daughter was killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre that Jones called a “false flag.”

Nelba Marquez-Greene, whose daughter Ana Grace was slain in the 2012 elementary school mass shooting, has taken to social media to attack Kelly for “normalizing” Alex Jones, who once said that the shooting was a hoax conducted by the government as a pretext for taking away Americans’ guns.

Addressing Kelly, Marquez-Greene said that promoting Jones through her show reopened old wounds for Sandy Hook parents who lost their children more than four years ago.

“By making this choice, you grieve our hearts and the memory of our child,” she wrote. “You have a powerful platform. I encourage you to ‘shine light’ on affirming the losses suffered here- NOT on a person who mocks those losses…. Evil doesn’t need another platform.”

Marquez-Greene also pointed out the bitter irony of Kelly’s interview with Jones airing on Father’s Day this coming Sunday.

“In Megyn Kelly’s America, cruelty gets you on national TV,” she wrote. “Sandy Hook grieving dads will go to the cemetery.”

Android phones to get ‘ShakeAlert’ earthquake warnings — and phones may double as tremor detectors

Published

on

Android phones will receive warnings triggered by a "ShakeAlert" earthquake early-warning system implemented on the West Coast by the US Geological Survey and partners.

ShakeAlert uses signals from hundreds of seismometers across the state to trigger warning messages that "an earthquake has begun and shaking is imminent," according to the system's website.

"We saw an opportunity to use Android to provide people with timely, helpful earthquake information when they search, as well as a few seconds warning to get themselves and their loved ones to safety if needed," principal software engineer Marc Stogaitis said in a blog post.
