From Conservative Brief:
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell hosted a Frank Free Speech rally in Michigan with headline guest Donald Trump and he did not disappoint in bringing the hammer.
As of this writing the rally is still going on in Michigan on Saturday and Trump has not yet spoken, but Lindell took to the microphones early to call out Fox News.
As liberal outlets like Comedy Central’s The Daily Show were in attendance, no doubt to mock the event, Fox News was nowhere to be seen.
Even as other conservative news networks like Newsmax and One American News were present at the event attended by thousands.
“I want to say one thing. Where’s Fox?” the CEO said. “This is part of our cancel culture and our free speech being suppressed. When you’ve got Fox who is supposed to be conservative, whatever, and you can’t even go on there and say anything anymore. It’s disgusting.”

Lindell has investigators looking into Fox News, he has said, because of them silencing them on their network.
Lindell appeared on Steve Bannon’s “War Room: Pandemic” podcast to discuss his upcoming documentary film on the 2020 election which he continues to believe was stolen from Donald Trump, when he was asked about Fox News, Business Insider reported.
“I don’t remember seeing you on Fox recently…Why are the Murdochs afraid of Dominion? Why is Mike Lindell not on Fox and why do they seem to say, hey, when Dominion says something, we’re just gonna shut up about it and talk about Biden’s tax bill?” Bannon said.
“You know, I’m gonna have those answers soon, ’cause I’ve hired private investigators and I’ve spent a lot of money on them to investigate everything,” Lindell said.
“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 said.
Lindell complained last month to the “Eric Metaxas Radio Show” that Fox News would not let him go on their programming to talk about his documentary “Absolute Proof.”
“I want to say one thing here — here’s things that don’t make sense,” he said. “Let’s just talk about Fox. You’re already sued! It’s too late to close the gate. The cows are already out of the barn!”
Dominion Voting Systems sued Fox News and Lindell for defamation last month, seeking $1.6 billion and $1.3 billion, respectively. The conservative news network is also facing a $2.7 billion lawsuit by Smartmatic allegedly spreading election misinformation earlier this year.
“Mike Lindell presents Absolute Interference,” an email promoting the video said, Newsweek reported. “The sequel to Absolute Proof with new evidence foreign & domestic enemies used computers to hack the 2020 election.”
A trailer for the newest Lindell production features the MyPillow CEO discussing the 2020 election conspiracy theory with retired General Michael Flyyn. The former Trump administration official previously pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his communication with Russia’s ambassador in 2016. Although Flynn initially agreed to cooperate with investigators looking into allegations that Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign conspired with Russia, he later became uncooperative and changed his plea to “not guilty.” Trump gave Flynn a full presidential pardon last November.
“We’ve always had pressure from foreign influences, foreign interference from different countries. Back in the beginning of this country it was Great Britain and France. It’s just migrated to countries like China, Russia, Iran, Venezuela, North Korea,” Gen. Flynn said in the trailer for the video. “And these are all countries that have some play in our election processes for the last—probably for the last decade.”
