CNN Cuts Away From My Pillow CEO as He Announces Mask Production, Praises God for Trump

CNN cut away from President Donald Trump's coronavirus press conference on Monday just as the president welcomed My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell to the podium to announce how his company is producing cotton masks to help curb the shortage of N95 face masks. Lindell went on to praise God for Trump's election and to encourage Americans to read their Bibles and pray during the coronavirus crisis. Yet CNN's audience would miss out on this inspiring message.

Just as Lindell began speaking, CNN's Wolff Blitzer cut away from him.

The Daily Caller caught the footage of Lindell's speech for anyone who had the misfortune of watching CNN at the time. The My Pillow CEO announced that 75 percent of his company's manufacturing has been redirected to the production of cotton face masks.

Yet his more notable comments came after this announcement.

"God gave us grace on November 8, 2016, to change the course we were on," Lindell said, referring to Trump's election. "God had been taken out of our schools and lives, a nation had turned its back on God. And I encourage you to use this time at home to get back in the word, read our Bibles and spend time with our families."

He praised Trump for having presided over "the best economy, the lowest unemployment, wages going up, it was amazing."

Lindell concluded his remarks with hope. "With our great president, vice president, and this administration and all the great people in this country praying daily, we will get through this and get back to a place that’s stronger and safer than ever," the CEO concluded.

Synopsis: CNN: "It's against our policy to show conservatives doing more to help than progressives/leftists."

It's also against their policy to show that there are still Americans who believe in God and Jesus Christ.

Instead they have been RANTING all over social media about Trump bringing in a guy to provide an "advertisement" while completely neglecting to mention the real reason he was there.

I am an Atheist and I think that all religion is ridiculous, BUT I strongly defend the right of people to live their religions as long as they do not try to impose their beliefs on others who do not want them.

After calling Trump Stupid for pulling America out of that stupid Paris Climate Accord CNN is still a total waste to watch it

Forcing any news organization to cover something is as bad as them not covering something.

The fact of the matter is that Mike Lindell was not going to say anything newsworthy as Trump had already announced what he was going to do.

As CNN did not have Lindell's remarks, it is ridiculous to assert that he was cut off for religious reasons.

There are thousands of press conferences held every day where people who really have nothing to say or add to the conversation are not shown live or mentioned in the print media.

Anon 1:43,

Your opinion will be given all the consideration it is worth.

If you care to actually dispute what was said, then please do so.

CNN is under no obligation to carry the remarks of anyone. Government compelling speech (ie the broadcast of something) is just as bad as the government telling people what they can't say.

There is no indication, much less proof, that CNN knew what Lindell was going to say. Therefore the idea that CNN didn't cover his remarks because they were religious in nature lacks any foundation and is clearly not logical.

There are thousands of press conferences held across the US every day and the media doesn't cover them in totality either.

This is case of people making up reasons to feel hurt.
