MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell said he directed the removal of his company's advertisements from Fox News programming after the network declined to run one of his commercials. The ad he sought to have aired promotes his cyber symposium event that will discuss the 2020 election. Lindell has repeatedly asserted the election was fraudulent, claiming Dominion Voting Systems machines were manipulated to steal votes from former President Donald Trump. Election officials and the company have rejected the claims. Lindell asserted the commercial would not discuss claims of election fraud, according to the Wall Street Journal, but he has said the event will prove election fraud.


Stupid move by Fox, but I won't miss his constant commercials one bit.

I agree with OP. I support Mike but his constant I'm-interrupting-this-commercial commercials that never change have become almost more than I can bear.

I haven't watched Fox since that fated night, but this is so ridiculous simply from a business point of view. Maybe I'm not remembering correctly, but I'm sure I'd seen commercials for their competitors' shows being run. They have no problem with the cash from those advertisers, but ML is too toxic? He pays their freight! And, aside from that, I pretty much tune out all commercials, and there are plenty that run ad nauseum..

Got my ever-so-deserving wife a pair of my-slippers. Not crazy about the pillow, but the slippers are fantastic and a lot cheaper than Uggs. Guess it's time to try the sheets.

No Fox no more, since election night. As to commercials, record your show and FF. Or, voice control your remote to mute the volume. The guy's got to make a living, he's doing the hard work for Trump/us, at least we can cut him some slack over a little bother. I dislike most commercials cause they're stupid.

We were Fox viewers at one time. Weaned ourselves off as each program began muting election fraud. We have two sets of My Pillow towels...fabulous! We have given the pillows as gifts and are ready to give the sheets a try.

I haven't watched Fox to the point of 'not at all' since 2015 when that horrible hair spray, lip gloss, cleavage touting harridan attack Donald Trump in the republican debates and after. I wrote Fox off. I haven't seen a ML commercial in ages but it might be fresh air after all the black face commercials on television now. Lindell would have to get a black face to promote his goods on regular TV these days. Good move Mike Lindell you don't need Fox or motor mouth Karate Kid Sean Hannity to promote your product.

I appreciate Mike, but when he announced his symposium, I thought it was a bit ignorant of him to think that any of the global media would advertise much less air it. Mike is being attacked, and we need to support him. I'm not a fan of his pillows (have two for guests), but I'll have to try the sheets or something else.

My little chihuahua Sofie loves her mypillow. She digs a hole in it and curls up in it to sleep all night. She confiscated mine and I had to buy a new one for myself. I also have the towels and really like them. They are more absorbent than the softer ones I usually buy.

I give Lindell much slack too, #6. I find FNC’s drug pushing commercials far more offensive than Mike’s ads. The word patriot is used a lot nowadays when few measure up to it as Lindell. If he has to do a lot of extra ads to keep up sales because stupid places like my Texas HEB removed his product, its okay with me. May God continue to bless and prosper Mike Lindell and his awesome American employees. MAGA.

Mike Lindell is doing more than any other single American to expose the vote fraud of 2020. They tried to cancel him, costing him $69 million in revenue. I have bought his sheets, towels and slippers--all great--and will continue to support this fine American entrepreneur.

I stopped watching Fox News when I learned that the suits ordered Arizona called for Biden while the polls were still open. This 'call' was the signal to start stealing the election in the swing states. Pennsyvania was up almost a million votes for Trump, but after Arizona that lead vanished in seconds. Brett Baire and his never-Trump colleagues like Cavuto and the execrable Chris Wallce were giddy with excitement. more Fox News!

My Pillow is about as close to Donald Trump as I could ever get. So I love me some Mike LIndell, I love his testimony and I wish him all the cyber opportunity he can hold and all he can carry. Before 2016 I owned 2 Kings, a Travel pillow, and some thanks from people I have sent pillows to. Now I have a big hankering for a pair of My Slippers, some thirsty towels and before being reeducation by some friendly Ldotters, I want some of those ''geezer sheets.'' Unexpectedly, my personal purse went up 6% and 4%, so it is in a near future purchase. Go MIKE! Do MAGA.

The federal government provides tens of millions of dollars each year to a nonprofit group that supports the movement to defund police departments and dismantle the criminal justice system. Officials with the Brooklyn-based Vera Institute of Justice have urged the government to "radically dismantle" police departments in order to fix a system they say dehumanizes people of color. The institute is heavily funded by the federal government. So far this fiscal year, the Department of Justice, Department of Health and Human Services, and other agencies have awarded the Vera Institute more than $89 million in contracts and grants.

President Biden's Justice Department warned states on Wednesday that they could face legal action in rolling back COVID-era voting procedures. "The department's enforcement policy does not consider a jurisdiction’s re-adoption of prior voting laws or procedures to be presumptively lawful; instead, the department will review a jurisdiction’s changes in voting laws or procedures for compliance with all federal laws regarding elections, as the facts and circumstances warrant," reads a document released by DOJ. It proceeds to outline a long list of statutory protections on voting rights, including those surrounding mail-in voting.

The Biden administration’s Executive Office of the President (EOP) has 560 employees and a payroll of close to $50 million — the highest of any administration in at least 12 years, according to data released Thursday. While President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are making their legally specified annual salaries of $400,000 and $235,100, respectively, more than 250 other officials are making at least six figures this year. White House press secretary Jen Psaki, for example, is one of 22 West Wing employees pulling in a taxpayer-funded salary of $180,000.

Vice President Kamala Harris has finally announced her intentions to visit the US-Mexico border after former President Trump made his plans to tour the border with Texas Governor Greg Abbott. Harris will be in El Paso, Texas, on Friday, June 25. She will be attended by Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, according to Politico. While countless media outlets and 56 GOP lawmakers have chastised Harris for not going to the border, despite being tasked with dealing with the border and immigration crisis by her boss President Joe Biden, it appears to have taken Trump's announcement to light a fire until the VP.

One of the most obvious misconceptions about liberals today is that they personify tolerance. The Oxford English Dictionary defines tolerance as "the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with. A recent poll by the Survey Center on American Life at the American Enterprise Institute found that Democrats are twice as likely as Republicans to report ending a friendship over a political disagreement (20% versus 10%). Liberals are also "far more likely than conservatives are to say they are no longer friends with someone due to political differences" (28% versus 10%).
