Faux News and the War on Christmas


Sure, there are a lot of real issues related to this news item, from Crooks and Liars and Newshounds, about an ‘interview’ conducted by John Gibson from Fox, like:

  • Why would a reputable news agency let a news personality conduct an interview on a subject he had written about?
  • Why would a reputable news agency even cover this story with the intensity that Faux has?
  • Is it appropriate to flash the news personality’s book cover on screen twice during an interview that is FAIR AND BALANCED?
  • But all of that pales in importance, when compared to the joy of watching John Gibson implode on air. Merry Christmas, John!
