MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has refused to bow to intense pressure from the corporate media and the Black Lives Matter movement to pull his company’s advertisements from the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” television show on Fox News, stating that “MyPillow believes all lives matter.”
Tucker Carlson’s vocal condemnation of the race riots, violence, and politically motivated deplatforming sweeping the nation has resulted in a concentrated campaign to remove all advertisers from his nightly television show.
Disney, T-Mobile, Home Advisor, and other major corporations have pulled advertising from “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” fueling left-wing hopes that Carlson could be forced off the airwaves.
One company that advertises on Carlson’s show, however, has refused to bow to the outrage mob. MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell told Newsweek last week that “MyPillow is not changing its advertising. I make all my advertising decisions based on what is best for my customers and my employees.”
Lindell added, “MyPillow believes all lives matter and values all our employees and customers, treating them like family.”
The massive success of Tucker Carlson’s television show has long stoked fires of angst among his detractors.
On June 1, “Tucker Carlson Tonight” was the most watched television program in the United States, on cable or broadcast networks:
Monday’s night’s edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight, in which the eponymous host went on an impassioned and prescient monologue about the riots ravaging The United States and the role of the current power structure in supporting said riots, was the most watched television program in the Western Hemisphere.
Cable news shows are typically among the most viewed programs on weeknights, but rarely are the most popular program airing on every given night. Tucker Carlson’s 8 p.m. show has been redefining the demographics and popularity of cable news viewership since it launched in 2016.
According to ShowBuzzDaily, the Fox News channel dominated the airwaves on Monday night, with Tucker Carlson Tonight leading Hannity and The Ingraham Angle with over 5 million viewers each.
