Anchor Has Hot Opinion About Santa. Gets In Trouble.


 A Chicago news anchor enraged parents when she announced during a segment on children’s gift expectations that Santa Claus isn’t real. During a conversation with her cohost about how long children should believe in Santa, Robin Robinson, a news anchor at Fox Chicago since 1987, argued that kids should learn early on that Santa isn’t real.  “Stop trying to convince your kids that Santa is Santa,” Robinson said to cohost 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.”


For all you kids out there, of course there is a Santa. There is no way on Earth that your parents would lie to you about a fictional man who somehow is able to make iPads and x-Boxes in a shed at the North Pole, and then deliver those gadgets and toys all over the world in one night when the rest of us can't even make it past Denton because of all of the traffic. If they were going to lie, they'd do a heck of a lot better job than that. So don't worry about it. The anchorwoman is probably just grumpy because Santa gave her a hideous yellow jacket. 

But when you watch the video, she sounds just like Clair Huxtable on a rant.
