Chicago News Anchor Apologizes For Claiming There Is No Santa On-Air!

| Filed under: TV NewsOops!Wacky, Tacky & True

Oh man, did those Whos down in Whoville put the Grinch through the ringer, or what?!

We recently reported on WFLD's Robin Robinson telling everyone watching the 9pm news in the Chicago area that there was no Santa Claus, and as to be expected, there was some SERIOUS backlash against the news anchor!

Therefore, during last night's telecast, gurlfriend spent an entire segment apologizing for her error in judgment, and was even set loose on the streets to be scolded firsthand by her own viewers!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

But will her apology be enough to get her taken off the naughty list this year?

What do U think??

    Perez is now a punk for not allowing comments on every story!!

    oh my gosh…this is ridiculous, leave it to people these days to watch horrific things going on in the world with their children and not take a second thought, but freak out over something so trivial. you want to get worked up about something? get worked up about what's happening in the news and do something about that. sorry, but after 9pm, you shouldn't be watching television with kids unless it's specifically a kids channel. anything that happens at that time is known to be not suitable for kids, it's your own fault.

    They're sitting there watching FOX with their kids. Hello. Not to mention some of the things fox has actually said over the air the last decade but no outrage there? Lol.
    I'll bet the kids loved watching Beck crying and fear mongering.

    Re: TheRealJerseyShore – He wants some people to look bad Like Kris HUMP. so he doesn't let you comment on to many stories of him.

    Re: boshemie – I agree. Why parents have to watch the news with their kids, its just awfaul. The news are like 95% bad news!.
    Its ridiculous to think you are taking away your children "innocence" (lol really??) by telling them about St. Nich not being real. The dutch at least got the best St. Nich ever.

    The "backlash" was ridiculous. Hey Perez, run the story about the "rent a toy" program for up to four months. How are the parents going to explain Santa taking the toy back. or even how are some parents going to explain to their children that Santa forgot them?

    Fox news is reporting that the Kardashians are dissemenating fake stories about Kris H. to discredit anything he might say. Would they be using you Perez?

    It's not like kids are intently watching every news story. They shouldn't even understand words like rape and murder yet. But they DO understand SANTA and you know their little ears perked up at the sound of his name. This news anchor should feel bad! If she doesn't want her kids to believe in Santa, that's fine, but don't spoil it for everyone else.



  11. 11

    Wow seriously?? Here i'll do it for her. SANTA CLAUSE, KRIS KRINGLE, SINTERKLAAS, etc etc IS FAKE HE does NOT EXIST!!! Not anymore at least… he died like AGES ago. And he wasn't similar to today's santa clause. I don't know WHY adults force this story down children's throats and then call dare it CHILDHOOD innocence. Delusional is more like it. gtfo.

    What parents should tell their children (especially the boys) is never to sit on Perez Hilton's lap because you'll get the North Pole up your butt and he'll want you to play with his sack full of goodies.

    Robin Robinson. Typical FOX "news" nimrod. Forget Santa. Her words of apology in the beginning of the clip would seem to cover most everything said on FOX News.



  14. 14

    Parents who lie to their kids should be punched in the throat.

    Excellent job in trying to discredit FOX. What about the Occupy pooples who brought their kids along for trashing public property, inhaling tear gas, rape, stealing, and squatting as a warped version of the First Amendment. (Wink, wink, nod, nod from 'Bummer.) I was raised on the TV news as a child. It did not freak me out. It made me an activist. And yes, boys and girls, my parents are two die hard Democrats.

    I love The US. So much bull.
