Fox News Cuts My Pillow Ads
If you watch Fox News, the one person you see on there all the time is My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell selling his products.
That will not be happening for the foreseeable future, as it is being reported that Lindell owes Fox News millions of dollars for unpaid ad invoices.
Lindell is blaming the ads being suspended on censoring by Fox News, but the reality is that he has fallen on very hard times due to supporting Trump’s 2020 election narrative.
Fall from Grace
It was only a handful of years ago that Mike Lindell was worth an estimated $300 million, in what was one of the greatest rags-to-riches stories ever heard.
Lindell, however, started to fight the outcome of the 2020 election out of his own pocket. He also wound up facing a defamation suit from Dominion Voting Systems for the statements he made about their company after the election.
In October, Lindell made news for his attorneys publicly stating that they were going to pull out of Lindell’s $1.3 billion defamation suit because Lindell was not paying his legal bills and owed the firm millions of dollars.
At the time, Lindell had even done an interview stating that every penny of his money was gone, and his credit lines had also been revoked.
Now, Fox News reportedly cut Lindell’s ads from the network for the same reason, stating that once he pays his invoices, it would be happy to post his ads again.
Lindell, however, is pushing the narrative that Fox News does not want him on the air leading up to the 2024 election.
He stated, “I’m bringing some disturbing news. Ever since I’ve been speaking out about our election platforms since January ’21, they’ve been attacking my company, MyPillow, with cancel culture… and now Fox News.”
“Fox News has canceled MyPillow.”
Lindell then went on to suggest that he was called because “my brand is branded right with our great real president, Donald Trump” or “maybe it’s because I brought Lou Dobbs over to my Lindell TV network this week.
“It’s just, it’s disturbing. It’s disgusting.”
Fox News pushed back on that narrative, responding, “As soon as their account is paid, we would be happy to accept their advertising.”
