So the supposed “War on Christmas” has been raging for years, according to Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly. Mind you, in Canada Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News is classified as an “entertainment” channel because it cannot qualify as a bonafide news channel due to numerous misrepresentations of the news according to the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).
