    Jon Stewart Apologizes to Megyn Kelly, Fox News for White Santa Jokes (Video)


    Jon Stewart has a new favorite target, and it’s come with a Christmas bow around it.
    “The Daily Show” host continued to skewer Megyn Kelly on Monday’s program for assertions the Fox News anchor made last week that Santa Claus is white.

    Many Americans disagreed with Kelly’s conclusions.
    “People who saw this segment, or read about it, expressed an opinion that what she said was wrong and inexplicably defensive and oddly definitive for a discussion of a fictional character and, people thought it was really f–ked up,” Stewart said. “People thought it was like really f–ked up. That was actually the Economist’s take on it.”

    “I guess we all owe you an apology,” Stewart said. “What appeared to me to be another example of a Fox News segment expressing anger and victimization over the loss of absolute power and reframing that as persecution of ‘real America’ by minorities, freeloaders, and socialists — that’s trademarked, by the way. What I thought was that was a jest, a jape, a bit of wise-crackery.”
    Apology accepted?

    Fox News has already lost its War on Christmas

    [​IMG]

    While Fox News was busy insisting that Santa (and Jesus) are white, a couple of new polls pointed to something that the network has been warning about for years: Christmas has gradually become less of a religious holiday, and more of a cultural one.

    So what happened to America? In a word: Aging.
    Younger Americans are far less likely than older ones to view Christmas as a religious holiday. Much like how same-sex marriage, marijuana legalization, and other once-untouchable wedge issues have been blunted by the nation's shifting demographics, the same phenomenon is evident in America's changing views of Christmas.

    i love jon stewart... a lot of the time. but when he has guests on i often get very frustrated with him, because he's so soft on them, even when they're responsible for terrible things. but he sucks up to them.

    anyways, jesus was brown, santa's imaginary. lol :)
