UPDATE: Since other blogs are getting on-board, I will make an official announcement Saturday Night at 7:30 EST calling for a boycott if FOX News doesn’t change this. We specifically want the words “Holiday Ornament” and “Holiday Tree” changed in the description to “Christmas Ornament” and “Christmas Tree”.
I am hereby announcing my intent to launch a massive e-mail campaign against FOX News. The only reason I’m not calling for a boycott of their network immediately is because I already don’t watch the other networks, and I do need some news to watch on TV.
This is coming from Media Matters, which claims Daily KOS broke the story, but they didn’t. It was mentioned this morning on FOX News itself. They reported that FOX News is selling “Holiday Ornaments for your Holiday Tree” on their online store. Since I am not a hypocrite, I don’t find this acceptable.
Because of this, and I’m calling for other blogs covering the War on Christmas to join me, I’m starting an e-mail campaign towards FOX, and unless things change, I will call for a boycott of their network Saturday Night. While I understand I don’t have the necessary readership or support to influence such a campaign, I am hoping other conservatives pick up on this. We cannot abandon our principles just because FOX is the only non-liberal Cable News Station.
We’ve Drafted This Sample E-Mail:
Fox News Employee,
I have recently enjoyed watching John Gibson and Bill O’Reilly’s coverage on the Assault on Christmas. They have provided America with a view that many have not yet seen, and one that I personally share. I believe there is a War on Christmas, and I believe we can win it if the public is educated and companies do what they can to keep Christmas where it belongs. That being said, it was recently brought to my attention by several websites that the FOX News store has several ornaments for sale. I was however saddened to see that your company has fell into the trap of political correctness and referred to them as “Holiday Ornaments” and in one description, said they could be added to our “Holiday Tree”. Obviously ornaments and the tree are clear symbols of Christmas. I think that FOX News should honor the reporting that Gibson and O’Reilly have put out by changing these immediately to “Christmas Ornaments” and “Christmas Tree”. If this isn’t done within a reasonable amount of time (some sites are calling for the evening of December 3rd), I intend to stop viewing your station. Please show that you care for Americans who choose to celebrate Christmas by keeping Christmas where it belongs.

I urge other conservatives to join with this cause, for two reasons. First off, to actually win the War on Christmas, and secondly, to show the other side that we stand by our principles.
Note: While I don’t believe Gibson and O’Reilly are hypocrites, I DO believe they need to do everything in their power to fix this.
