Fox News QUITTING Announcement – End Of An Era!

Citing a payment dispute with CEO Mike Lindell, Fox News quietly “canceled” MyPillow advertising.

Lindell took to X and called the move “disturbing.”

“We don’t know why,” the outspoken Trump supporter said in a video statement. “We can only make a couple of guesses.”

“Maybe it’s because Lou Dobbs was added over here at Lindell TV,” he suggested.

In February 2021, Fox News abruptly canceled Dobbs’ weekday program on Fox Business Network, “Lou Dobbs Tonight.” Dobbs was shown the door one day after the election systems company, Smartmatic, filed a pre-planned $2.7 billion lawsuit against Fox Corp. that named Dobbs as one of several hosts (including Jeanine Pirro and Maria Bartiromo) who’d “irreparably harmed” its reputation by accusing it of committing election fraud.

Dobbs’ first interview on Lindell TV was with Donald Trump, whom Lindell referred to as “our great real president.”

“Or maybe it’s because they don’t even want my face on their network leading up to the 2024 election in support of our great, real president, Donald Trump,” Lindell speculated.

“I believe this is all about stopping me from talking about the election platforms and the elections and getting rid of my voice,” he added.

According to Fox spokeswoman Irena Briganti, the issue isn’t his voice, it’s Lindell’s money — or lack thereof.

“As soon as their account is paid, we would be happy to accept their advertising,” Briganti said, according to The Associated Press.

In an interview with AP, Lindell “acknowledged that MyPillow owes money to Fox,” the outlet reports.

“He put the figure at $7.8 million, but he insisted that the sum is within his credit line with the network,” AP states. “He said MyPillow has long spent an average of $1 million a week to run its ads on Fox. And he said the network had long allowed him 12 weeks of credit until it recently cut that to eight weeks.”

On FrankSpeech.com, Lindell said he’s been with Fox “since MyPillow did its first infomercial in November of 2011.”

“We’ve ran an average, I believe, of about a million dollars a week in advertising with them,” he said. “That’s hundreds of millions of dollars.”

In November, Fox told the CEO that it wanted to move his credit down from the normal 12 weeks it extends to advertisers to eight weeks.

“I didn’t like it, but I said okay,” Lindell said.

In December, he said, the ad agency he works with paid roughly $1.2 million a week to Fox.

“On Wednesday, I get notice from the ad agency that Fox is cancelling us,” Lindell said. “It was very disturbing.”

On X, Lindell’s supporters have had it with Fox.

“Time to put a metaphorical pillow over the face of Fox and end their suffering and be done with them,” wrote one user.

“I just bought one of your pillows last night,” one user told Lindell. “I don’t care at all about your politics one way or the other, that pillow is amazing.”
