MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is absolutely apoplectic that Fox News has had enough of his absurd conspiracy theories and will not give him any airtime to disseminate his lies that the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump.
Appearing on what he has dubbed “Lindell TV,” Monday, the pillow magnate launched into an enraged rant against Fox:
“Shame on Fox! They’ve done more damage to this country than all the bad media combined because we expected them to speak out! Just at least talk about the, at least be a journalist! Like being a Weather Channel… and you can’t report tornadoes or hurricanes!”
Lindell neglected to mention that Fox is more than a bit nervous these days because the network is already facing at $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems, which has accused Fox of lying about the reliability and security of its voting machines.
Also, Lindell still hasn’t provided a shred of evidence that a single ballot cast in the 2020 election was fraudulent.
Lindell also suggested that Fox is a threat to the United States:
“Fox is in on it! They are criminals to our country! Period! Yes I hope the Murdochs are watching!”

It’s important to remember that this is the very same Mike Lindell who has been saying for over a year now that the 2020 election would be overturned by the Supreme Court, as Salon reported back in September of last year:
“Originally, I had hoped for August and September. I asked all the lawyers just yesterday,” Lindell said. “We are taking this case to the Supreme Court before Thanksgiving. Now maybe Fox [News] will report that today.” That aside was a reference to the pillow king’s feud with Fox News, which has generally ignored his recent claims and refused to cover his August “cyber symposium” in South Dakota.
“This evidence is 100% non-subjective evidence,” Lindell continued, “and that the Supreme Court, they’re going to vote 9-nothing to take it in. We will have this before the Supreme Court before Thanksgiving. That’s my promise to the people of this country. We’re all in this together. We worked very hard on this!”
Clearly, the problem isn’t Fox News. It’s Lindell’s failure to accept reality and get on with his life.
