MyPillow pulls ads from Fox News that disagree with the network
The CEO of MyPillow Inc., one of Fox News’ major advertisers, said he was pulling his ads off the network following a disagreement over a scheduled commercial.
Mike Lindell said he made the decision after Fox News refused to run a commercial in connection with its efforts to promote its claims of widespread fraud in the 2020 presidential election. Security and election officials said there was no evidence of widespread election fraud.
“It is unfortunate that Mr. Lindell has decided to pause his advertising time with FOX News given the success he’s had in building his brand through advertising on the leading cable news network,” Fox News said in a statement.
Fox didn’t say if the ad was blocked.
Mr Lindell said he wanted to cancel the ads as soon as possible and had told his ad buyer to notify Fox News.
