Check out this Newsmax appearance with Mike Lindell, the appendage to insurrection-era Donald Trump and CEO of MyPillow, posted by Media Matters’ Lis Power:

Lindell was invited to discuss “cancel culture” (after his personal account and the MyPillow account were banned for spreading lies about the election). Instead, Lindell started rehashing the same debunked claims of voter fraud that got him kicked off Twitter—only to get kicked off Newsmax, too.

Anchor Bob Sellers did everything he could to shut him down, including interrupting him, asking producers to get him off the air, and, finally, leaving the set altogether.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2021 demands.
