Fox News provides a source of constant amusement and irritation for thinking people everywhere. But at the end of November, news watchers know exactly what's coming: Fox News' stupid "War on Christmas" coverage. While there isn't any war on the country's most beloved holiday, Fox News is going to be sure and at least attempt to spoil it for everyone.
The "War on Christmas" concept started with Evangelical Christians who insist baselessly that they're being discriminated against during the holiday season of December by godless masses who want to "take Christ out of Christmas." With a higher literacy rate, these folks would likely realize that December houses three major holidays including Christmas, along with other minor ones.
Rhode Island is aware of this fact, and as such erected a holiday tree in the State House. Fox News is not happy, and they've invited a state representative to explain how her resolution to call trees for Christmas has been positively ignored. Rather than erecting her own appropriately named tree, Doreen Costa and Christians everywhere will not be happy until every pine tree from coast to coast has been named for Christmas. And they say everyone else is starting the war?
The Fox & Friends segment even caught the attention of CNN, which cited the segment in its report on the Rhode Island tree and noted that "Fox News, as it does every year, went crazy" over the War on Christmas.
Strangely, though, despite Fox & Friends' freakout over the Rhode Island holiday tree, later during the show, they declared that there was "no more 'War on Christmas.' "
