Shopping Mall Santas Scaling Back Kids’ Expectations, Profiling Parents: MyFoxCHICAGO.com

Fox anchor Robin Robinson didn’t mince words when spoiling a long standing Christmas tradition on the nightly news — should she be reprimanded?

It looks like we’ve found the real-life grinch! HollyBaby.com has stumbled upon a video of a Chicago Fox news anchor who didn’t have any issue taking Santa to task at 9:45pm when most children are still awake watching TV with their parents!

“Stop trying to convince your kids that Santa is Santa. There is no Santa,” Robin screamed. “Santa’s a generosity of the season. But he’s not coming down the chimney, he’s not eating those cookies, he’s not bringing you anything!”

The anchor later apologized after receiving hate mail to the station. Do you think she should be suspended or even fired?
