One America News Network slammed Newsmax for “censoring” , CEO of MyPillow, during a Thursday segment.
During the right-wing news outlet’s morning broadcast, anchor Mike Dinow accused Newsmax of playing into viral “cancel culture” by trying to subdue conservative voices.
“It has become a disturbingly familiar series of events in recent weeks,” , OAN’s White House correspondent, added.
Pellegrino claimed that Lindell is the latest target of big tech’s attempt to stop the spread of information in order to benefit their own agendas, and that Newsmax is playing into the censorship attempts.
For your enjoyment, here’s One America News shivving Newsmax for “censoring” MyPillow’s Mike Lindell: “Newsmax touts itself as real news for real people. But is this yet another case of a so-called fair and unbiased network being swept up by leftist censorship?” pic.twitter.com/fO95js5UaK

“In a segment to discuss social media censorship, watch as Newsmax censors Mike Lindell,” Pellegrino said before a clip of the Tuesday interview plays, during which anchor Bob Sellers walks off set mid-conversation.
“You’re talking about machines that we at Newsmax have not been able to verify any of those kinds of allegations,” Sellers said during the interview, interrupting Lindell. “We just want to let people know that there’s nothing substantive with what we’ve seen.”
Sellers then read the MyPillow CEO a statement regarding Newsmax’s view on alleged election fraud.
“While there were some clear evidence of some cases of vote fraud and election irregularities, the election results in every state were certified, and Newsmax accepts the results as legal and final, the courts have also supported that view.”
Pellegrino then stated that Newsmax tried to “muzzle” Lindell during a previous interview as well.
OAN then played a clip of Lindell discussing the Tuesday Newsmax interview, stating that the outlet had sent his assistant a memo telling him not to bring up the topics of election fraud or voting machines.
“Newsmax touts itself as real news for real people. But is this yet another case of a so-called fair and unbiased network being swept up by leftist censorship?” Pellegrino concludes.
The Hill has reached out to Newsmax for comment.
Lindell has been banned from Twitter on his personal and business accounts in recent weeks.
In his last tweet from the MyPillow account, Lindell attacked Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, accusing him of being involved in election fraud.
No evidence has been substantiated to back up claims that the 2020 election was rigged.
