    The problem with this statement is that Bill is suggesting that 100% of the Christians are offended enough by "Happy Holidays" to take their business elsewhere. I wonder what percentage of that 85% that call themselves Christians care more about their pocket books than what some retailer is calling December this year? I believe that as long as Wal-Mart is 5% cheaper than the stores around it, they could say "Happy Satan's Day" and most customers would be back the next week.

    First, who the freak cares? I care about as much for Orielly as I care about what kind of Christmas cookies I am eating. He could retire tomorrow and my life would be no more different than it is today.

    Second, Your picture proves absolutely nothing. It's two easy to create mirror sites with differences or hack into a site or just photoshop it.

    While I don't know for sure, my opinion is that both captures are legit.

    I can't say that I went to O'Reilly's website on December 7, but if you go to it now, you will see that there isn't any recommended gifts option at all under "About Bill", or any where else on the site. He does have a Christmas store link to the left.

    My opinion: Fake.

    I don't get it, even if it was changed from "Holidays" to "Christmas", how is that "PWND"? It says "Recommended Holiday Gifts" , not "Happy Holidays" as opposed to "Merry Christmas". There are other holidays during this time....Hannaka, New Years....

    Yeah, umm, "Recommended Christmas gifts" is the first item on the "About Bill" menu. I don't know how you could possibly miss that.

    And the rest of you can believe what you want to believe, but wanting something to be false won't make it so.

    (But since you'd all probably say the same thing about me...)

    The web page says "Recommended Christmas Gifts," but if you look at the title of the page, it is still "BillOReilly.com Recommended Holiday Gifts."

    OOPS!

    Sometimes the coverup is worse than the crime.

    Again I ask, how is the words "Recommended Holiday Gifts" in any way shape or form make him a hypocrit? The word changed from Holiday to Christmas (instead of Christmas to Holiday) so I don't see any 'hypocracy' here. And O'Reilly's rant was about using the term "Happy Holidays" versus "Merry Christmas", he never implied you shouldn't use the word "holiday" for anything. This is a pretty sad attempt to attack O'Reilly.

    O'Reilly has been complaining about how people/companies are saying "Happy holidays," instead of "Merry Christmas."
    His War on Christmas, is not limited to to that either, he complained about Sears and Kmart having "Wish Book Holiday 2005," on their website, as opposed to something that says Christmas in it. (link)

    The hypocracy is that, while he was complaining about "holiday trees," and "holiday wish books," and all that jazz, his own website was participating in what he was complaining about.

    Trying to cover it up, after the fact, does not clear him from being a hypocrite.
