Ever since Virginia O'Hanlon wrote The New York Sun asking if Santa Claus was real, the media has treated the existence of the jolly old elf as sacred. Until now.

During a live broadcast on Tuesday, Robin Robinson of Fox News Chicago loudly proclaimed there is no Santa. What a Scrooge!

In fact, Robinson even suggested that kids should be taught that Santa isn't real "as soon as they can talk."

He's not coming down the chimney. He's not eating those cookies. He's not bringing you anything," she added.

Well, we can think of at least one person who'll be getting coal this year. Watch one serious holiday Grinch below. And if there are any small children present, please shield their innocent ears.
