Republicans have been hammering CEOs for being making political decisions following their party’s enactment of restrictive voter laws. But, to them, it’s OK for MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell to be political to the point of wanting the presidential election overturned. Lindell is a true bootlicking Trump sycophant, and Republicans have become the party of victimization. Recently, Lindell threw a hissy fit over Fox News for the network allegedly refusing to let him on the air.
However, Smartmatic filed a $2.7-billion libel lawsuit against Fox News, The Daily Beast reported, adding that “three hosts (including recently canceled Lou Dobbs), and former Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, saying they all spread false information that the company rigged the 2020 election. Dominion, another voting machine company at the center of debunked election conspiracies, has sued Lindell himself for $1.3 billion.”
So, it’s not too hard to figure out why the network may not want him on the air. It’s not that Fox News doesn’t allow lies to be spewed on the air. It’s that they are being sued for a fuckton of money.
On Friday, though, Mr. Big Brain claimed on Steve Bannon’s “War Room: Pandemic” podcast that he’s hired private investigators to find out why Fox News isn’t letting him go on the network as a guest. “I’ve spent a lot of money on them,” Lindell said after Bannon asked why he hasn’t appeared on Fox News.

“You know, I’m gonna have those answers soon because I’ve hired private investigators, and I’ve spent a lot of money on them to investigate everything,” Lindell told Bannon.
“The bots and trolls, who’s behind them? Why is Facebook involved, Wikipedia involved? And then the big question, why isn’t Fox having people on? Why isn’t Fox on there talking about Dominion and Smartmatic and the election fraud?” he added.

The answer is right there in his question, but OK. Also, he’s still spreading the Big Lie of widespread voter fraud that doesn’t exist.
