Mike Lindell's War With Fox News Heats Up With Attack On Hannity, Ingraham
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell's war on Fox News comes to a head when he launched yet another attack on the right wing network in which he was once a fixture in both ads and as a guest on his shows.
"Where is fox? Where's Fox? "He demanded weeks after taking his once ubiquitous ads offline." Fox, you have to step it up and help save our country! "
Speaking to the right-wing OAN network, Lindell was still angry at Fox News for having decided last month not to air ads for its "Cyber Symposium" event that he believed contained evidence of fraud in the 2020 election would.
It didn't, and even one of Lindell's own experts called the so-called evidence "a shit heap".
But Lindell called Fox News about it, specifically naming the network hosts Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham.
"The truth is, you don't say anything on your show," he scolded Hannity. "Neither do you, Laura."
He was a little less strict with Tucker Carlson, although he got the name wrong.
"Trucker has tried to talk about the 2020 election a couple of times, I give him some credit," he said.
The failed fortune teller - who had previously predicted Donald Trump would somehow be swept back into office on Aug. 13 - was once a loyal Fox News recruiter. He stayed with Carlson even as other advertisers dropped their seats in response to the host's increasingly extremist, racist, and xenophobic rhetoric.
The New York Times said last year that by mid-2020, MyPillow spots accounted for more than a third of the $ 75 million in ads spent on Carlson's show.
But he said last month it was all over and told The Daily Beast that he had no plans to ever advertise on the network again.
