To all of our readers and commenters and twitterers and facebookers and everyone else -- Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Ho ho ho!
December 25, 2021

On behalf of all of us here at Crooks and Liars, we wish you a very Merry Christmas Day. We're so grateful to all of you who keep us online and on alert for the stories you've come to expect from us here.

We are giving all of our staff the day off to spend with their families today. If you're new to our site, try browsing our archives, or come back tomorrow morning when we'll have fresh videos right off the griddle for you.

Your Christmas open thread is below, with some fun Christmas music.

With love and hopes for a better 2022,

John Amato, Karoli, Fran, Heather, Susie, Aliza, Red, Ellen, Capper, Scarce and all of our wonderful contributors and cartoonists!

Can you help us out?

For nearly 20 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
