MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell isn’t happy that Fox News hasn’t written about his firm’s lawsuit against voting-machine company Dominion.

During a livestream for the launch of his new social-media site Frank, Lindell urged the network to invite him on air so he could speak about his lawsuit. MyPillow sued Dominion for $1.6 billion on Monday, accusing it of trying to stifle free speech. The suit also repeated debunked conspiracy theories that Dominion facilitated voter fraud.

“Isn’t it big news that MyPillow sued a company called Dominion that is paid for by tax dollars?” Lindell said, addressing Fox.

MyPillow’s suit follows a $1.3 billion lawsuit Dominion filed against both Lindell and MyPillow in February, after he spread baseless claims that it had developed technology to switch votes from Donald Trump to Joe Biden.

MyPillow’s lawsuit has been covered by other news outlets including The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, and CNBC, but not on Fox News or Fox Business’ websites.

“Why don’t you report? Fox, report, have me on,” Lindell said during the livestream. “We can talk about Frank, talk about this lawsuit,” he added, after naming Fox hosts Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity, and Tucker Carlson.

Fox didn’t respond to Insider’s request for comment.

In the past, MyPillow has advertised heavily on Fox News, but relations have soured over 2021. Lindell previously told Steve Bannon that he had hired private investigators to find out why Fox News isn’t letting him go on the network.

Fox News has also been sued by Dominion, as well as fellow voting-machine company Smartmatic. They accuse the network of airing baseless segments about the companies’ roles in facilitating election fraud.

Fox News said in a statement earlier this year that it was “proud” of its election coverage, and that it would “vigorously” defend itself against the lawsuits in court.

Lindell said during his livestream Tuesday that “Fox has already been sued by Dominion and Smartmatic, so if you’ve already been sued, why would you not want to pour out the evidence that you were talking about before anyway?”

He added that MyPillow was “suing Dominion because they’re suppressing our right to free speech and it affects you Fox, it affects all the outlets, why not have me on?”

Lindell also asked Newsmax and its CEO, Chris Ruddy, to invite him on again.

He even urged CNN’s Anderson Cooper to speak to him. Cooper sparred with Lindell during an interview in August after the CEO pushed an unproven “cure” for the coronavirus.

“I’ll even come on your rotten show,” Lindell said, directed at Cooper, during Tuesday’s livestream.

Larry Kudlow said ‘bulls—‘ repeatedly in a Fox News hot mic incident after criticism from VP Harris of the Trump vaccine rollout

Kudlow hot mic
Larry Kudlow was heard swearing in response to criticism from Vice President Kamala Harris shortly after the segment shown above.

  • Larry Kudlow reacted angrily to criticism of Trump’s vaccine plan on Fox News Tuesday.
  • Kudlow said “bulls—” several times in a hot mic moment after hearing a clip of Kamala Harris. 
  • Harris claimed that the Biden administration had to start “from scratch” with its vaccine plan.

Former Trump administration economic advisor Larry Kudlow swore on live TV in a hot mic incident at his first day working for Fox.

Kudlow repeatedly said “bulls—” in response to claim by Vice President Kamala Harris that the Biden administration was “starting from scratch” in its vaccine distribution strategy.

Kudlow was appearing on “America Reports” Tuesday afternoon to tout his new Fox Business show which debuted that evening. 

During the show a clip was played of an interview in which Harris criticised the lack of vaccine rollout plans from Kudlow’s colleagues in the Trump administration.

“We were leaving it to the states or local leaders to try and figure it out, and so in many ways we’re starting from scratch on something that’s been raging for almost an entire year,” Harris said in the interview with Axios.

While the clip played, Kudlow, who was not longer on screen but whose mic had not been switched off, could be heard repeating “bulls—! bulls—! bulls—!”

His response starts around 45 seconds into this clip:

As producers moved to cut off Kudlow’s audio-feed, the hosts apologized, with host Sandra Smith remarking: “That is Larry Kudlow weighing in… Wow.”

In his first Fox Business show later Kudlow apologised for swearing, but doubled down on his rejection of Harris’ criticism. 

“I’m not usually a guy who swears but what the Vice President said burned me up and it’s simply not true, okay? It is somewhere between cognitive dissonance and an outright falsehood lie,” he said. 

Kudlow was a member of the Trump administration’s coronavirus task force, and repeatedly downplayed the importance of the pandemic during his time in office.

Early last year he falsely claimed the virus had been “contained” before it went on to ravage the US throughout 2020. He was also a part of the administration’s Operation Warp Speed vaccine rollout plan. 

The plan achieved its objective of helping develop COVID-19 vaccines, but by the time Biden took office in January its distribution strategy had become mired in chaos.
