US News Fox TV News Anchor Tells Kids There Is No Santa Clause...Deal With It (w/ Video)

Wow, Robin Robinson. Use good judgment much?

The Fox Chicago news anchor has been at the station for 24 years. So you would think she would know better than to go on live television and say, “There is no Santa.” But no, apparently not.

Earlier this week, the 9 P.M. news program was doing a segment on children’s unreasonable gift expectations from old Saint Nick. At the end of the segment, Robinson and her co-anchor, Bob Sirott, engaged in a little mini-debate on how parents should handle the issue.

Sirott said parents should tell kids that there is indeed a Santa, and if they don’t get what they really want then they should just blame him. That in itself is pretty cynical, but it’s nothing compared to Robinson’s argument.

She said, apparently unaware that children possess the ability to hear, “Stop trying to convince your kids that Santa is Santa...There is no Santa.”

Doesn't seem like a big deal. He was arguing that parents should tell kids that Santa is real. Don't see how that isn't just as bad. Either way, it's basically saying that Santa isn't real, whether the parents choose to tell their kids he is or isn't.

Life is made of the little things, live it well
I believe when a child is ready to say that Santa is not real it should be their decision not the medias.

    I've got some friends in animation department who have been applying for Blizzard, doing interviews and such. They said the workplace seems nice, though now it'd be all remote work I suppose
  • The Helper The Helper:
    good for them I live close to Austin and am trying to get my kids interested in getting into Games but not having much luck. I would never let them move to Cali.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    unless it was huge money
  • The Helper The Helper:
    and even then with the taxes I really could never let them move there
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    Haha fair enough, I have no interest in CA at all as a living place either. Really only here just for the work in LA, but hopefully once I get settled enough in my work, I can move out
