Most major broadcasters are no longer interested in having Mike Lindell as a guest. Even Fox News, where the pillow magnate ran commercials for years, apparently cut Lindell off.
During a recent appearance on Steve Bannon's podcast, the pillow guy tore himself into his former favorite network. Lindell even agreed when Bannon suggested that the Conservatives stop watching Fox and turn on MSNBC instead.
Bannon, who led Donald Trump's campaign in 2016, told his podcast listeners: "Take a look at MSNBC. Check out Chris Hayes or Rachel Maddow. They get better coverage … they get better coverage every day. "
Lindell replied: "Much better than Fox. "Bannon then continued," They blow us up and hate you and the audience, but they still do real coverage. "

The My Pillow guy has long been angry with the Fox network for believing they didn't support his attempts to overturn the 2020 election results with enough force.
Already in March Lindell grumbled on the Eric Metaxas show: "I want to say one thing here – here are things that don't make sense. Let's just talk about Fox. You are already sued! It's too late to close the gate. The cows are already out of the barn! You're already sued, Fox. What do you have – are you double sued? What's wrong with you? What are you doing? I do not get it. Is it a fake lawsuit? "
