“My Pillow” Guy: We’re NOT pulling our ads from Laura Ingraham
“We did not take down our advertising … Nor do we intend to”
As reported yesterday, Fox News is standing with Laura Ingraham as she becomes the latest target of a decades-old campaign by Media Matters and others to deplatform conservative media figures and to destroy Fox News:
“We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts. We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back hosting her program next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children.”
In this latest iteration, Parkland student David Hogg plays the role against Ingraham that Sandra Fluke played in the Media Matters-organized campaign targeting Rush Limbaugh advertisers. As I wrote in my prior post, If Fox News cancels Laura Ingraham, it might as well close the network:
It’s not about Laura Ingraham or David Hogg — it’s about an unhinged and emboldened totalitarian movement that seeks to deplatform conservatives. Their primary target for a decade has been Fox News, which is the one non-liberal network in a sea of liberal major media.
Sacrificing Laura Ingraham won’t satiate the beast. If Fox News cancels Laura Ingraham over this faux outrage about her tweet, then Fox News might as well close the network.
Over one dozen advertisers have announced they will not advertise on Ingraham’s show. I don’t know if this list is complete. but CBS News reports that these companies have joined the Ingraham Boycott:
Liberty Mutual Insurance
Atlantis, Paradise Island
Johnson & Johnson
There is one company, however, that just announced it is NOT pulling ads from Ingraham and has no intention of doing so in the future, the seemingly ubiquitous advertiser My Pillow:
On Twitter both the founder Mike Lindell and the company tweeted out that they would not stop advertising on Ingraham’s show or on Fox News:
“We did not take down our advertising … Nor do we intend to”
I’m sure there will be social media pushback, particularly since #TheResistance already hates Lindell because he’s a Trump supporter.
But I’m also seeing a lot of people tweet that they will purchase My Pillow because of the refusal to capitulate to the Ingraham boycott.
I’m going to order.

The BUYcott…a BeeeeUtiful idea…!!!
It’s always worthwhile downvoting Rasputin, no matter what he writes…..
No it isn’t. That’s childish and just the behavior many on the right, rightfully, condemn by those on the left.
I ⬆️ or ⬇️ by what it said – not by who says it.
“No it isn’t. That’s childish and – ”
1) in this particular case it serves a useful purpose – stressing him out prompts him to reveal his true colors. We get an inside look at the character of a Never Trumper. Know thy enemy and such.
2) Up/down vote systems are by their very nature “childish”, a fallacious Appeal to Conformity.
I would prefer to drop them for an edit function, but here they remain. Open the door to Mischief? In walks Mischief.
Mostly it’s just tiresome.
I understand your point, but the irony is that the comment received up and down votes. It reminds me of a bumper sticker I saw years ago: I hate bumper stickers.
I couldn’t agree more with Marge. I didn’t spend 20 years in the Navy to require Rags to agree with me. I invested that time so he could be wrong.
What’s this country about? Conformity? If it were I’d have nothing to do with it.
I prefer a world where where we have different outlooks, even when they are wrong.
Do these pillows actually work? Also, there must be a heck of a markup to compensate for the incessant ads.
But they have a cool jingle though.
“For the best nights sleep in the whole wide world, visit MyPillow.com”
And it sounds as if they resurrected the Andrews Sisters just for this commercial.
If there’s one guy I’d like to see gone, it’s this guy.
I bought one, and I love it. It is the best pillow, and I never wake up with a stiff neck. I am now thinking to buy one for my son, as he is heading out to a college summer course this year.
Best pillow ever. I own five.
I agree with Leslie. My wife got them for each of us and they are great. I never would have believed it but it is the best pillow I have ever owned.
My daughter has a couple and LOVE them.
Not much more expensive that than good down pillows I have, but they will definitely be my choice when these need replaced
proofread Murky, proofread
My daughter bought one and claims she sleeps much more restfully.
Eventually, the smart businesses will figure out that social media outrage is mostly faux outrage, and is best ignored.
We Americans seem to manufacture and export more OUTRAGE than any country in the world.
There is a whole industry allowed to profit from outrage and grievances, so no surprise there.
As well as an entire political party.
This is known as the ghetto lottery, being in the wrong, while suing those who are right. That is a big part of why people fled cities, it was not that people were black, it was about them allowing their little monsters to run wild, and theft, assault and property destruction.
It was about low class children of all races making schools unacceptable. Schools which cannot teach because parents never instilled a love for learning – unruly, obnoxious little monsters.
And then they become teens, like Trayvon Martin & Micheal Brown.
Where was Trayvon’s dad when he was in desperate need of a firm hand, out for the night getting laid.
If Trayvon had been my son he would have lost all the gadgets, been grounded and his useless tail would have been doing hard work dawn to dusk. Good parenting is about knowing how much slack to leave in a kids leash, and then making them sorry when they screw up. It is much better they have lots of small sorries than a big one ending in them being maimed or dead.
I have two (they only come in pairs) and they’re great.
That’s a long list of companies that have left, I did call
Looks like my work is not done.
When calling, tell them that people who are really sick of this are getting ready to organize a boycott.
Also, look into what legislative issues each company is promoting, and then threaten to weigh in on those.
And last, start attacking the lefts people, dig for dirt and give them a dose of their own tactics.
I ran a DC lobbying operation for two decades, it is much easier to torpedo legislation than to pass it, by at least a factor of ten.
So, to Resist the Resistance, it takes a hard man to sell a soft pillow.
Activate the Leslie Signal!
The Climate Cons just got their heads handed to them by the judge
And WattsUp has discovered a lethal error in climate science and sent it in as an amicus brief for both parties to respond to
This could be TrayvonMartin-level smackdown. Pack your notepads and a swimsuit!
Back on topic
“Do these pillows actually work?”
Don’t care. I’m placing my order today. Yay free speech! Yay right to self-defense!
I will be switching all patients on the Invokana (J&J) franchise medication to either Farxiga or Jardiance as their scripts come due.
I bought 2 long ago and inherited 2 more when my sister died
My gut reaction: If I see one more my pillow commercial, I’m going to shit YOUR pants….
Like the product, hate the commercials… But will re-think that now… 🙂
Will share on FB to drum up biz as well…
Fox news should draw a line and curtail the relationship with advertisers across the board if they pull from the Ingraham show.
So, you deplore market choices?
Figures. They can support one or several shows, but you’ll cut them off if they don’t support the ones you want.
Good thing we have choices, and that market players offer us products that cater to those choices.
Otherwise, we’d all be forced to buy 10 foot red ties…
No, he’s advocating a market choice.
I think I’ll buy a couple. Wouldn’t have thought of it before this Hoggwash.
If I were a shareholder in: Bayer, Miracle-Ear, Liberty Mutual Insurance,Ruby Tuesday, Atlantis, Paradise Island, Jenny Craig, Nutrish, Hulu, TripAdvisor, Wayfair,
Stitch Fix, Expedia, Nestlé, Johnson & Johnson or Office Depot, I’d be very unhappy with a management that is messing with that company’s profits. Mismanagement is something you can see for. #class-action
I bought a couple just now.
My general rule is to never buy this type of advertised on TV product, But now I might make an exception. I certainly developed more respect for this guy.
It’s ironic that the guy selling pillows is the one who has the spine to stand up to the deplatform movement. I hope his business does well.
I’m doing my part by sending a contribution to the NRA Political Victory Fund. It’s disgusting how the left has made opposition to one of our fundamental civil liberties into a virtue-signaling movement. We need the NRA and other pro-2nd-amendment groups to help us keep our freedoms. The progressives are using everything from blackmail to boycotts to voter initiatives, all financed by billionaires, to attack our rights. We must stand together and become more vocal.
The thing is I would approve of MyPillow’s decision not to remove their adds if it were Rachel Maddow. I despise this sort of extortion. The good news is it generally backfires. I had never been in a Chik-Fil-A until gay activists declared a boycott. Then I’m like, “I’m eating at Chik-Fil-A.”
No kidding. Eff off, people.
Spread this far and wide. The left eats this stuff up….
