Media Matters: Bill O’Reilly Covers The War On Christmas More Than Actual Wars

Media Matters reviewed the content of Bill O’Reilly’s December programming and discovered something that reveals the truth about his long-standing “War on Christmas.”

“Every year, ‘Culture Warrior’ Bill O’Reilly devotes considerable time on his Fox News show to the ‘War on Christmas.’ This December, O’Reilly has covered the imaginary ‘War on Christmas’ more than three times as much as the actual wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Bill O'Reilly's Christmas

That should tell you something about O’Reilly’s priorities. But it’s not really a revelation about his sanctimonious persona and fixation on pretending that Christmas is under attack.

If Christmas actually was at risk from clandestine secular-progressives bent on deposing Santa, O’Reilly would be amongst those responsible. His own concept of Christmas is a perverse vision of greed and consumerism. This is how he expresses the meaning of Christmas:

“Every company in America should be on its knees thanking Jesus for being born. Without Christmas, most American businesses would be far less profitable.”

Heartwarming isn’t it? It’s a sentiment that just oozes with the season’s warmth, joy, and humanity. He seems to believe that Christ died on the cross for your net receipts and a favorable business environment. That’s a far cry from the guy who threw the moneychangers out of the temple.

O’Reilly is not much of an advocate of the values that Christmas represents to so many Americans. Neither is he much of an advocate for those who are burdened with fighting real wars. His idea of supporting the troops is sending them free copies of his unreadable books.

  1. I’m amazed at the jobs people have and thank God we have such a diverse economy. Someone is being paid to study these things and put together statistics like this for guys like you to use – of couse I would need to trust these stats, which in this case I’m sure they are correct. Pretty funny – especially the thanking Jesus for being born quote.

  2. Even though he’s talking about the pagan style (and government suggested) celebration of the holiday; the Christian style celebration is just going to church that early early morning, isn’t it? He’s defending the pagan takeover of the day’s spiritual meaning. His argument is fundamentally retarded and absolutely backwards. What a goddamn boob.
