MyPillow Chief Executive Officer, Mike Lindell, would like for Fox News to pivot away from reporting on the Manhattan indictment of former President Donald Trump, and to consider reporting on conservative efforts to do away with voting machines.

Ron Filipkowski shared a clip of Lindell's rant, writing, "Mike Lindell is outraged that the media is giving so much coverage to Trump's indictment but they won’t do stories on his battle against voting machines."

The CEO, who contributed to efforts to overturn the 2020 election in favor of Trump, said, "I can't stand when all these outlets — like your Fox News's...pick and choose what they want to make the news. What about all the great things that are happening to get rid of these election machines and going to paper ballots?"

Lindell, according to The Guardian, recently "pledged to support" to majority-Republican Shausta County in California in its decision to "end its contract with Dominion Voting Systems, the company that has been the subject of a conspiracy theory that it played a role in swinging the election for Biden."

The Guardian reports the decision "has left the semi-rural county without a voting system and no replacement ready to implement when its Dominion contract ends," which occurred last month.

Fox News is currently facing a $1.6 billion lawsuit filed by the voting machine company.

Twitter users were quick to shoot down the conservative CEO's inquiry.

JMPWA: Well, Pillow Man @realMikeLindell - if you ever get real, legitimate info. about the voting machines that will hold up in court, the media will cover it. The fact is you've been promising evidence for 3 years and haven't delivered a thing - except crazy soundbites.

@Bric_Mitchell: "Hypothetically, What if the jury used voting machines to enter a "not guilty" verdict? Would he still rail against them? I assume not because hypocrisy but you never know"

Kathy Santini-Lighthizer: "You almost have to feel sorry for this dolt... he is living in a dream world..."

gene2459: "I can't wait to buy my first Dominion Pillow."

Elizabeth Reed: "Maybe because no other network wants to pay Dominion the millions/billions Fox Entertainment is going to have to pay for perpetuating that lie?"
