Bill O'Reilly is at it again
It seems as if everyday, Bill O'Reilly does something else to prove what a vile human being he is.
On his show the other night, O'Reilly responded to the criticism of his "war on Christmas" talk over the past several months, most notably from Dateline's Josh Mankiewicz. Mankiewicz, like me and others, said that the whole anti-Merry Christmas thing is a myth. And what does O'Reilly use as proof that the whole anti-Merry Christmas story is valid? This:
Well, I guess they missed the Gallup poll that said 69 percent of Americans opposed dropping the greeting "Merry Christmas" and nearly half the country thinks Christmas is under siege. Why is that laughable?
Here's why Bill...Just because the Gallup poll conducts a phone poll about something, doesn't mean that particular something is legit. I mean, why are they even conducting the poll in the first place? Not because it's a legitimate news story, but because news organizations like you are making it into a news story. See the difference? Let's put it in the right context.
And look at that poll question! If someone called you and asked you if you were against getting rid of the phrase "Merry Christmas" of course you would say you were against it! How does that prove that there is a real "war on Christmas" going on from the left? "Nearly half the country thinks Christmas is under seige." You know why? Because you keep telling them it is.
