    It's not a 'fluff' piece it's a warning that Christmas Trees are DANGEROUS. It's stoooooooooopid. Get it? Tracking Santa Claus for the kiddies is a fluff piece. Seriously, you can't tell the difference?

    Christmas trees cause sickness is not a 'fluff' news article. It's a leftist, secular humanist bid to degrade Christmas and the MSM is glad to spread it around. It's ridiculous on its face.

    Or it's yet another in a long string of news stories created simply to try to draw viewers. Are you honestly telling me you aren't aware that local news stations sometimes do health-related stories with overly scary headlines? "This food you like to eat might cause cancer!" "Dangerous bacteria could be living in your pipes!" "That rash could be a crippling disease!" I think that on the show Last Week Tonight, they once played a string of clips from local news stations in just this vein.

    But you go ahead and believe it's the Philadelphia CBS affiliate trying to destroy Christmas. :p
