LAist sends news KNBC in Los Angeles gave Kwanza the full treatment in a explanation of the holiday. However, when it came to Christmas, the station seemed ignorant, or willfully ignorant of the meaning behind Christmas.
He broke down the number of times Christmas was uttered and the usage various other words, but there was no mention of Jesus or Jesus Christ:
“Christmas” was uttered 30 times.
“Holiday” was said 10 times.
“Santa” – twice
“pope” – twice
“tsunami” – three times
“savior” – once
LAist counters the “but everyone knows Jesus” argument:
And if their argument is “everyone knows today is Jesus’s birthday”, we would argue back that everyone knew it was nice outside and yet the weather guy got a hearty amount of airtime to tell us just that.
