The “Right” Before Christmas

(8 pm – promoted by ek hornbeck)

The Right Before Christmas

Twas the day before Christmas

And all through the news

The networks were vying

To peddle their views

The Secular Media

Pretending to care

Broadcast their services

Over the air

CNN’s query for

Me and for you

Was what would Lord Jesus

Himself really do


Wants to share with us all

The party from Radio

City Music Hall

But one network more

Than the others declares

Its devotion to

Christianity’s prayers

From 24 hours

Its schedule was sliced

To give almost half

To the glory of Christ

Which compels one to wonder

Regarding Fox News

T’would be better to hail

The net as Fox Pews

On this holiday eve, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the programming served up by the big three cable news networks. Not surprisingly, they all offered specials related to Christmas. It is, of course, entirely appropriate to produce programs that will be of interest to such a prominent percentage of TV consumers on a day of great national significance. But it was nonetheless a little jarring to discover the extent of Fox News’ sermonizing.

Christian content consumed nearly half (11 hours) of the 24 hour period pre-Christmas. The programs included an airing of “Miracles: Facts, Fictions, and Faith,” two airings of “One Nation Under God” hosted by Newt Gingrich, three airings of “The Birth of Jesus,” and five airings of “The Rick Warren Christmas Special.”

Despite the declaration of victory issued by General Bill O’Reilly, the War on Christmas is still raging and Fox doesn’t appear ready to stand down. After all, both Rupert Murdoch and the White House sent out “holiday” greetings this year. So as an extra measure of security, Fox is implementing its own surge strategy by scheduling nine straight hours of Gen. O’Reilly himself on Christmas day. Who better to spend the Lord’s birthday with than the man who proclaimed that:

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

Now that’s Christmas spirit! I wasn’t even aware that companies had knees. But it is uplifting to know that Jesus was born to increase profit margins. Never mind those moneychangers in the temple.
