Fox Chicago news anchor decides to tell the world "There's no Santa Claus"

It seems the "war on Christmas' is being waged by FOX itself.  FOX News Chicago anchor Robin Robinson is under fire for saying on television over and over that Santa doesn't exist.   Then she apologized profusely for doing so:

“Stop trying to convince your kids that Santa is Santa,” Robinson said to co-anchor Bob Sirott during a segment Tuesday night. “That’s why they have these high expectations. They know you can’t afford it, so what do they do? Just ask some man in a red suit. There is no Santa.”

A bewildered Sirott responded, “Hey, Ebenizer, what’s with you?” a reference to Ebenezer Scrooge, the Christmas-hating star of “A Christmas Carol.”

The station was flooded with angry responses to the segment, with parents demanding an apology. ABC News reports:

Robinson, who has been on the station since 1987, apologized to her audience the following day on a segment called “The Talker,”  which shares reader opinions. Robinson read many of the Facebook posts that angry parents wrote to her about the comments, noting that she did not realize that children would still be awake for the 9 p.m. broadcast. She apologized multiple times.
