Fox’s, Ahem, “Christmas” Card Isn’t Very Christmassy

Oh my God.  Fox News is such a hypocritical sack of s**t.

Check out Fox News’ and Fox Business Network’s Christmas holiday cards:

Here’s Fox News’:

Look at the little fox riding the sleigh that’s leading the ABC and CBS sleighs, and notice CNN and MSNBC peaking over the ridge on the left.

And here’s the Fox Business Network’s card:

Foxes roasting a peacock.  How cute, and a metaphor for the Fox Business Network “roasting” CNBC, which it’s nowhere near doing, as in here’s the latest on their “anemic ratings” (even after four years on the air).

But the point of this post, and what drives me insane, is that just yesterday — yesterday! — Fox posted an article criticizing the White House “holiday” card because it depicts Bo the dog, “holiday greenery” and poinsettias instead of a Christmas tree!  See it here.

Now you show me a damn Christmas tree in either of these cards.  And what’s so awful about showing Bo lying in front of a fireplace compared to showing cartoonish foxes roasting a peacock and manning little sleighs?

Geezus.  My hair is on fire.

    There’s no cross of element of Christianity to be seen anywhere. Hysterical.

    Way to put “Christ” back in Christmas!

    Notice what’s pulling the sleighs, too: sheep.

    Now, I admit I might be reading a bit too much into this, but it seems rather disconcerting that it is /sheep/ pulling the sleighs of news networks.

    Yeah, I noticed the sheep too. One could assume that’s what they think of their viewers.

    You know, funny thing.

    Those earlier White House Christmas cards are available on line for anybody to see.

    Bush, 2005 – The White House in the snow, with the two Bush dogs. Nothing about Christmas at all.

    Reagan, 1983 – A room in what might be the White House; the only sign of Christmas is a wreath in the window.

    Looks to me like somebody is trying to make a lot of noise about something that’s never applied to any president, ever.

    That, or Reagan hated ‘family, faith and freedom’ more than Obama apparently does.

    Yes, I just put up a post about that and yeah, I got the pictures from the Business Insider. Thanks for the reference though. Love it.

    They are not reindeer nor snow dogs pulling the slay. They used sheep on purpose
