As we know from watching Fox News, Chick fil-A is a sacred institution - right up there with the Vatican and Liberty University. Earlier this year, when evil secular forces of the gay agenda attacked Chick fil-A, Fox News took up its mighty media vorpal sword to defend Jesus' very own chicken. Bill O'Reilly defended the free speech rights of Dan Cathy, president of Chick fil-A, to defend "traditional marriage." So does Bill O'Reilly know that Chick fil-A has committed an egregious sacrilege involving Bill's sacred seasonal traditions by using the profane word "holiday" in part of its advertising? OMG, Chick fil-A is part of the "War on Christmas!" Don't know about the Baby Jesus; but Bill O'Reilly should be pretty pissed off about this!
It’s the hypocrisy that riles us, Joshua.
Actually three: viz the parting query of your second post.
“Any cable news channel exists to make a prophit.”
Josh, my man…..we can’t help you with your faulty logic, but we can suggest ‘Spell-Check so you don’t look so dumb.
No need to thank me….it’s Christmas!!!
The so-called “war on Christmas,” however… is just a few Fox News an RW radio hosts baselessly telling people that “Happy Holidays” is part of some kind of attempt to censor the Christian Holidays.
Our entire point in our coverage is pointing out that they don’t believe a word of their own rhetoric. They say anythng other than “Merry Christmas” is an affront, but they say Happy Holidays themselves. They have no problem with the term, they just don’t want the opposing view to have the right to say it.
However, judging by some posts here, there are those who wouldn’t mind if there were no religious people in the world. If there was a war on Christmas, the headquarters would be here.
Ellen and other wouldn’t be here if Fox News wasn’t such a fountain of hypocrisy, and unfair and unbalanced news.
But I think they will be glad to see that you agree with them : the Fox News War on Christmas is totally phony.
Any cable news channel exists to make a prophit. If pointing out that some people hate Christmas gets ratings that’s a good thing. It’s kinda like this site milking the notoriety of FOX news to make a buck. I am sure Ellen and others wouldn’t be here if it didn’t line their pockets with at least a little cash.
When I first read that story, my very first thought was “I wonder how O’Reilly will react?”
“Obviously this phony annual War on Christmas is to only boost ratings and increase advertising revenues which is all the suits at Fox only really care about.”
Especially “Jabba the Ailes” (i.e. truman’s nickname for Roger Ailes, head of Fox Spews Channel) and Herr Goebbels II (i.e. Rupert Murdoch).
They definitely have a double standard if a community does not have religious symbols or displays on government property to promote their beliefs, but don’t feel offended at all when it comes to accepting money from advertisers that do the same.
