Happy holidays from Fox News

Bill O'Reilly's bringing back the "war on Christmas," but maybe he should be careful about throwing stones.

Ah, the signs of the holiday season -- the first falling leaves, the first Christmas lights, Bill O'Reilly bringing up old conspiracy theories. Last night, Think Progress reports, O'Reilly started up the "war on Christmas" theme again, this time bringing a message of hope to his viewers: that liberal bastion Wal-Mart has finally caved and will be expanding its use of Christmas-themed language this year.

Congratulations on your victory, Bill. With that behind you, you may want to spend some time casting out the secular progressives inside News Corp., Fox News' parent. As New York gossip blog Gawker reported last week, News Corp. will be holding a "Holiday Party" -- for at least the second year in a row.
