It seems like the War On Christmas comes earlier every year. For the folks over at Fox News, some of whom are still reeling from the outcome of the election, it seems there are many more reasons to be concerned this holiday season.
In the days before Thanksgiving, Fox filled its shows with dire, sometimes terrifying segments about all the threats surrounding the merriest season of the year. There’s the eradication of free speech by atheist “loons,” the possibility of choking on our food, the diseases spread on airplanes, and the endless depression that comes from Christmas commercials.
If we even make it to Christmas, that is. Fox’s morning man Bill Hemmer charted the possibility that the “apocalypse” would arrive on Dec. 22, and just how sad it will be when we all get wiped out, leaving all those unopened presents under the tree.
So, sit back and take in the best of Fox’s holiday doom and gloom. And as you endure the season, take a moment to think of all those over at Fox News, who clearly need a little cheering up.
