Todd Starnes caught lying about war on Christmas again

Dammit Todd, what is wrong with you?!

Not even a week after Fox News contributor Todd Starnes had been caught lying about a Christmas card display, he was back at it again.

This time, Starnes "reported" that an elementary school in Frisco, TX had "banned Christmas trees and the colors red & green from an upcoming 'winter' party."

"Boys and girls who attend the Nichols Elementary School 'Winter Party' will not be able to make any reference to Christmas or any other religious holiday," Starnes claims. "Christmas trees are also banned — along with the colors red and green."

Starnes' latest "journalism" is as much an epic mound of B.S. as the last.

Though to his credit, he actually does have something vaguely resembling a source this time. Unfortunately, that source is state rep. Pat Fallon, author of the "Merry Christmas" law signed by Gov. Rick Perry this year, and as much of a pathological liar as Todd Starnes.

"An unfortunate misunderstanding regarding an email that was sent by a room mom has unfairly portrayed a school and the Frisco ISD as having violated the 'Merry Christmas Law'" a statement by the Frisco Independent School District read. "This is simply incorrect.

"The email being referenced was not an official PTA email nor was the school aware of it being sent. The email that was sent by the room mom was sent two weeks before the party planning meeting had even been held. At the party planning meeting held on November 19, prior to any knowledge of the email, the school leaders went over the new law as part of the meeting. Please understand, there has never been a ban on what is worn, what is said, or what is brought to the party."

"When the email was forwarded to Mr. Fallon stating no red or green or Christmas trees and no reference to Christmas or another religious holiday, he sent a letter to our Superintendent regarding the law. Our Superintendent called him and assured him these were not our rules. We are still unsure of why the campus and District’s position was misunderstood and why there is the feeling that there is some sort of ban of items or greetings regarding the winter holiday parties at that school."

Again, what the hell is wrong with you Todd? When you got caught red-handed lying the first time, did you seriously not think you would get caught again?
