Megyn Kelly of Cluster Fox News is a much better tap dancer than Fred Astaire.

I wonder why so many people on here like to hate Fox News.
Their viewership ratings are higher than CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, HLN all combined. By a large margin.
Someone must like what they have to say.

I dislike all of them equally. I pick my news channel by which one has the cutest weather girl. ;)

Well, tefinn, I guess you won’t find the weather girl on Fox very cute, I don’t think they do weather, just news and commentary. But, Megyn is certainly not hard to look at IMHO.

Mark – My mistake, as you are correct. What I should have said was; Megyn Kelly knows how to do a better dance routine than Fred Astaire to get out of the bigoted remarks she made.

And Crank, you’ve been listening to Cluster Faux News for way to long. ;o))

This is a debate for people who just want to debate. You can find all sorts of things to point out as “terrible” if you don’t like Fox News… or MSNBC, CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC…

Jimbo4, Fred Astaire does not dance. If you think he does, well, ok.

Jimbo – of course you are likely quoting some other “professional victim” like Sharpton – editing her remarks.
What of the story that started this show?

Aisha Harris on Slate wrote this piece of claptrap….and it got picked up on Fox

Two decades later, America is less and less white, but a melanin-deficient Santa remains the default in commercials, mall casting calls, and movies. Isn’t it time that our image of Santa better serve all the children he delights each Christmas?

Yes, it is. And so I propose that America abandon Santa-as-fat-old-white-man and create a new symbol of Christmas cheer. From here on out, Santa Claus should be a penguin.

That’s right: a penguin.

Why, you ask? For one thing, making Santa Claus an animal rather than an old white male could spare millions of nonwhite kids the insecurity and shame that I remember from childhood.

The latest “I am a Victim mentality: that a white santa is “Not inclusive” or a harmful stereotyte is pretty pathetic.. worse is the idea that children of color are crying themselves to sleep in December 24th because according to “The night before Christmas” Santa is fat and has rosy cheeks.

We get fox news in the united kingdom ie britain it is prejudiced rubbish they hate your president and don’t mind saying so trying to ridicule mr Obama at every oportunity.Over here or news broadcasters are not allowed to give us their viewpoint and dish out the news per script and not off script if a discussion comes up yes they get some programmes where they do ask awkward questions but never sink so low as to make either side seem hated .In other words your fox news is what we call tacky but then again, we do everything according to the book and we seem to prefer it this way.Now after watching some of your representatives there is a marked almost laughable cheapness about some things you do fox news is to broadcasting what judge judy is to lowerring markedly the dignity of the long established legal profession she’s like fox opinionated and rude.At least it’s just at the end of the day entertainment and we never mix serious newsworthy broadcasts with entertainment ours are kind of classier without being snooty.MY 3 cents you can keep your fox news Judge judy and aLL the other clowns all they lack are the big shoes and the red nose.Alistair

Both Jesus and Santa are white inventions, thusly they are white no matter what PC has to say.

Santa’s skin color makes no nevermind to me as long as he keeps finding my house.

Unless I’m mistaken, Jesus was a Jew. Santa is probably a Presbyterian.

The Easter bunny is amoral and an agnostic.

Being born in Turkey around 270 AD, I would imagine that the real Saint Nicholas, aka Santa Claus, looked more like a Kebab Shop owner.
