Yes it’s true. Fox News host Megyn Kelly just wanted ‘kids watching’ to know these two undeniable and universal truths. The right-wing cable network never fails to live up to its reputation for being a white-washed, racist and frankly speaking – stupid – news channel.
While having a panel discussion on a Slate blog titled ‘Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore' Kelly expressed her inability to wrap her head around the fact that this ‘African American’ (why bother being politically correct?) writer, Aisha Harris, would suggest that the concept of Santa should be more inclusive for children.
Firstly, it’s unclear why Fox news felt like a singular blog about on a writer’s personal views is news-worthy. Secondly, why three panelists were needed to debate on the issue is even more ridiculous.
As usual, once Media Matters published the clip from The Kelly File on social media Twitter had a field day.
On any other network Megyn Kelly's bullshit would get her fired. But Fox's viewers are as white as she thinks Jesus and Santa were.— Captain Spite (@CaptainSpite) December 12, 2013
Don't worry you guys, Fox News' Megyn Kelly assures us both Santa & Jesus R white AND she's totally not racist http://t.co/JSgvORsp3K— Rania Khalek (@RaniaKhalek) December 12, 2013

.@megynkelly Anyway, sorry to bother you. Hope you're having a good night. (PS Jesus wasn't "white" and to suggest so is insane.)— Richard Lawson (@rilaws) December 12, 2013
"Jesus was a white man," says Megyn Kelly. Actually, he probably looked like this: https://t.co/Xb7HvVnIFg— Jeffrey Goldberg (@JeffreyGoldberg) December 12, 2013
