Fox Santa science vs. PBS Santa science

Fox's war on Santa got pretty mean last year, with craters in residential neighborhoods, at least one four-letter word, decapitated baby dolls, gratuitous full frontal male cartoon nudity and Santa's face turned into hamburger and licked by a dog in the fireplace. (Not to mention cruel child labor manufacturing of toys and the allegation that the Chinese eat reindeer genitals for health.)

This year, PBS counteracted the scurrilous notion that Santa couldn't possibly deliver toys to all those children, reassuring kids that, through clever usage of time zones, Santa actually has 32 hours, not 24, to deliver presents and may well be using quantum mechanics to get the job done. Whew. Ball's in your court, Roger Ailes.
