Media Christmas: The Germans Wore Gray; O'Reilly Wore Blue

We're hearing those sleigh bells jingling, sure, but we're not hearing much more than that. Why no reports from you people? Friday night brought a bunch of big Media Christmas parties. There's was a bunch of TV — GMA, Fox News, the Food Network — plus notables like Google and the CBS Evening News. We count on you for the good goss from these get-together, and so far: nada.

We imagine an incident at the Fox News party much like the Marseillaise scene in Casablanca, but with Bill O'Reilly as Victor Laszlo, forcing the band to strike up a rousing Silent Night after the evil secularists, led by Maj. Strasser, start drunkenly singing something horribly ecumenical, like Winter Wonderland. (In our imagined version, Capt. Renault is also then forced to shut down Fox News. One can dream, no?)

Meantime, in the reality-based world: Please? Reports? Thanks.

There's also the latest edition of the big list is after the jump. Just a few little additions and corrections.
