Lindell said the commercial didn’t specifically mention election fraud but admitted the event would prove Trump lost in 2020 because of voter fraud.
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell pulled all ads from Fox News after the network did not accept a commercial about an online symposium:
Mr. Lindell said he wanted to cancel the ads as soon as possible and that he had told his ad buyer to inform Fox News.
Mr. Lindell said he had asked the network to air a commercial promoting a cyber symposium, which he is scheduled to live stream next month. Mr. Lindell said the commercial wouldn’t specifically mention claims of election fraud. But he has said the symposium will prove the 2020 election was stolen from then-President Donald Trump through manipulation of election machines.
Lindell told CNBC he demanded Fox News stop airing every single ad.
“If there are any stragglers today, it’s a fluke,” he said.
Lindell has continued to press the claim President Joe Biden beat former President Donald Trump due to fraud. Dominion Voting Systems sued Lindell and MyPillow for $1.3 billion. He countersued.
Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s stopped selling MyPillow and other Lindell products. Lindell claimed his company lost 40% of their business in January and February.
In 2020, Lindell spent around $50 million to run ads on Fox News. He forked over almost $19 million in 2021.
Fox News said: “It’s unfortunate Mr. Lindell has chosen to pause his commercial time on FOX News given the level of success he’s experienced in building his brand through advertising on the number one cable news network.”DONATE
