Jon Stewart Ridicules Fox For Their Annual 'War On Christmas'

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart took Fox to task for their annual ritual of pretending that there's a so-called "war on Christmas."

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart opened his show this Tuesday evening by letting Fox "news" have it for their annual ritual known as the "war on Christmas." Stewart started out mocking them for their over the top fearmongering over a swimming class for Muslim girls, then Sarah Palin's miserable failure of a Christmas book she's trying to peddle this year.

And of course, last but not least, Bill-O and his rantings about how the retail stores are somehow participating in this phony "war" of his as well. As Stewart reminded them at the end of the segment, if Palin and O'Reilly really believe that commercialization of the holiday is what's "spreading Christmas cheer," they may have a new nemesis who is waging the "war on Christmas" as well -- Pope Francis.
