Stephen Colbert catches Gretchen Carlson making stuff up about the war on Christmas

Gretchen Carlson, the pride of Anoka High School, and Steve Doocey’s best pal on Fox and Friends, probably has a clause in her contract to make sure we know there’s a war on Christmas. That’s the only logical reason she keeps obsessing on the subject.

Well, that and ratings.

But in her zeal to keep America safe for Santa and Jesus, she keeps making stuff up and spreading rumors, like the story about the Florida school that’s banned the colors red and green.

"It’s crazy!" she says. Also, it’s not true. And Stephen Colbert swooped in last night to try and keep her anchored to the reality-based community.

Gretchen Carlson Makes False Claim About School’s “War on Christmas Colors.” video

Gretchen Carlson reports that a central Florida school has banned the colors red and green.

A spokesperson for the school, which hopefully isn’t getting death threats from the nice Christian Fox fans, told Media Matters that this just isn’t true. Fox’s report is based on a local Florida news item which reported that one parent complained that the students can’t use red and green. As noted by Media Matters, Carlson ran with the story and made no mention of whether her crack research staff contacted the school for verification. Not surprisingly, ace Fox culture clubber, Todd Starnes, has run the story which is linked to on “Fox Nation.” But this type of one sided, dare I say “bogus” reporting is nothing new on Fox.

You simply have to read this article, in “Connecticut Magazine,” about Gretchen Carlson. It’s quite an insight into the life of a Fox “News” diva who hosts a morning opinion show which she actually thinks is a “fair and balanced” news show. Read about Gretch’s Connecticut “crib.” Read about how Gretch doesn’t think the reporter should base her questions on what she sees on blogs that track Fox News. Read about how Fox wanted the magazine to drop the article and threatenened to sue the magazine if anything is printed without Fox’s approval.
