Cannibalism In The Morning
Everyone knows that Fox News has been pumping raw right wing sewage into the public for decades. But amazingly it’s still not raw enough for some folks.
I don’t know what to do with this Mike Lindell guy. He’s obviously got a screw loose. He’s in major hot water litigation-wise and he still thinks he can potentiate the return of Donald Trump and the removal of Joe Biden. He’s a clearinghouse for stolen election information. He’s wasting money on some third-rate Twitter platform. All of it says he’s on the path to self destruction.
Clearly he needs attention, because he’s now sowing mistrust of Fox:
According to a report from the Daily Beast’s Zachary Petrizzo, on Friday night MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell announced plans for a protest outside the New York City headquarters of Fox News, claiming the conservative network is “a big part of our country being taken from us.”
Lindell has been at war with Fox after they banned him as a guest for pushing 2020 presidential election conspiracies, including one accusing Dominion Voting Systems of allowing their voting machines to be hacked which then led to a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit filed against him in February.
After pulling his ubiquitous ads from the network for a brief period, they have since returned, but Lindell’s war with the network is still ongoing.
This is not good, because I’ve seen the Fox-plus networks and the disinformation and propaganda they are purveying can be shocking. And people are into it. The alternate reality of the right wing is deepening.
