A harangue, if you like.

If you've been waiting for a long "stop telling me how PERSECUTED Christians are" harangue, wait no more.

Note: Not safe for work. Or home, really. Maybe safe for a cave far, far away from sensitive eyes.


  • The FOX news personalities are paid to be upset about stuff and say outrageous things, aka trolls. Getting upset at them once is kinda acceptable. Getting upset at them at every point is kinda like being a grouchy stalker. Interestingly enough, the domain was registered on 24 Dec 2002 which means that whoever put this up has been upset about Christmas for a while now.

  • Adolph,

    While you are right in believing that FOX news is sort of a silly thing that's easy to ignore, there's a large problem with FOX in that so many people take it as the honest truth. You wouldn't believe the amount of people who only get their news from FOX news, who write insanely inaccurate letters to, ahem, news outlets spouting outright lies told to them from FOX news. Though this one particular person will not change their minds, it is the thinking man's duty to correct the "news" told by FOX news, if only because they are factually wrong so often.

    I wonder if this person puts up a Christmas diatribe every year. This one seemed pretty topical, as the hot-button cultural issue right now is "Christmas" v. "holidays."

    Personally, I don't care. I'm non-religious and love being told "Merry Christmas!"

  • Merry Christmeas, Sara! I fall on your side of the discussion in terms of how many people take FOX news (or any one media source) as 'the word' - hook, line and sinker.

  • I have never watched Fox News, (seriously. never) but innacuracy in the media is pretty widespread. Whenever there is a media report on a topic with which I am intimately familiar, I find that it is riddled with inaccuracies. Names wrong, terminology used incorrectly, basic facts twisted or ommitted... It strains the imagination to suppose that these are limited only to reports I view on topics I know well. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Believing that everything presented on Fox news is beyond question is no more or less a problem than believing the same about any other media outlet.

  • I am rarely able to spot inaccuracies in news reports or news articles; what i am sensitive to, and extremely bothered by, however, is rhetoric, image bombardement, op-ed disguised as reporting, etc. I am turned off by any news program wherein the presentation of the news seems overly-manipulative...
