Is there no beloved American tradition the liberal media won't try to sour? "A Warning on Nutmeg," a silly post from the New York Times' health section, failed to come close to justifying its alarmist headline, and functioned as a near parody of liberal media handwringing. But it's far from the first time the paper has flubbed Thanksgiving, either politically or by just being ridiculous

"Horrible Bosses 2" features the kind of raw, unexpurgated comedy you'd expect from the franchise.
The studio behind the film is extending that coarse brand to social media.

Are you about to enjoy your Thanksgiving turkey? Well, Salon writer Lindsay Abrams wants you to stop. Stop right now! Not content to give liberal ideology a rest even on this holiday, Abrams attempts to guilt trip her readers into giving up turkey for Thanksgiving.
NY Times Hypocritically Spreads Skepticism on Ferguson Grand Jury; Calls Cops an 'Alien, Occupying Force'By Clay Waters | November 27, 2014 | 12:27 PM EST
The New York Times continued to spread skepticism about the decision by a grand jury in Ferguson, Mo., not to seek criminal charges against a white police officer who shot a black teenager. The Times hypocritically upended its own liberal sensibility by suggesting more prosecutorial zeal would have been a good thing in this particular case. And a lead editorial likened the Ferguson police to "an alien, occupying force that is synonymous with state-sponsored abuse."

This is literally unbelievable. On November 25, Time.com posted an article by Darlena Cunha titled "In Defense of Rioting," insisting that peaceful protests are only a "luxury" to those safely in “mainstream culture”, that riots are a “necessary part of the evolution of society”, and even brought the Tea Party into the mix by comparing the peaceful Tea Party protestors of today to those of the Boston Tea Party rioters in the past.

Erin Burnett’s bizarre suggestion that yelling “Burn that bitch down” might not be a call to violence was challenged even inside CNN on Tuesday. Jake Tapper’s blog for his show The Lead notes that one local official on the scene felt the mood shifted into rage after Michael Brown’s stepfather yelled that phrase repeatedly.

CBS and 60 Minutes hailed Cardinal Sean O'Malley for his handling of church sex-abuse cases. The lesson here is that if a Church official is willing to criticize the Church over the topic of sex abuse, the media will fête him as a media darling no matter what he has actually done as a Church official.

During his MSNBC show on Wednesday night, Ed Schultz and guest Mike Papantonio devoted five minutes to promoting, among other things, their beliefs that Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson “crafted his answers” to the grand jury and in his interview with ABC News “to match the law” and that Fox News, the tea party, and conservatives will soon want their “made-for-TV folk hero” in Wilson to run for Congress and appear on Dancing with the Stars.
Following a series of clips from Wilson’s interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Schultz welcomed in Papantonio and felt it was crucial to warn viewers that “I’m going to judge here, okay” that Wilson had “got crafted answers to match the law so he could escape justice.”

On Wednesday's Today, NBC co-host Savannah Guthrie confronted Michael Brown's mother, Leslie McSpadden, as gently as you possibly could about her husband encouraging the latest round of Ferguson rioting. After showing a video of Louis Head screaming "Burn this b--ch down," McSpadden refused to hold him accountable for the aftermath. Instead, she blamed the white governor for the unrest. Guthrie had no pushback beyond "Can you explain what you mean?"

Mike Rowe, the former host of “Dirty Jobs” and now host of a new CNN series called “Somebody’s Gotta Do It”, is no stranger when it comes to attacks on his political beliefs. Recently, he was attacked on his own Facebook page by a liberal -- who incidentally tried to hock his liberal books by using Rowe’s Facebook page as a marketing platform (and did it poorly).

In speech at the National Press Club on Tuesday, New York’s senior Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer expressed regret over how Democrats handled their large majorities following the 2008 election in passing ObamaCare when they should have focused first on economic issues to address the recession.
Since then, the remarks have received no coverage from any of the “big three” in ABC, CBS, and NBC on either their respective morning or evening newscasts in a situation that undoubtedly would not be the case if a Republican Senator had expressed doubts about an initiative by a Republican-controlled Congress and White House.

During Wednesday's edition of MSNBC's Morning Joe program, Joe Scarborough asserted that if he behaved like 18-year-old Michael Brown did during the August 9 incident in Ferguson, Mo., a police officer would have reacted the same way Darren Wilson did even though the co-host is “a white guy.”
“There are two criminal justice systems in America,” Scarborough claimed at the start of the segment. “Black young men especially are not only treated worse on the street, they're treated worse in the court system, they're treated worse all the way through. What white kids get away with, black kids don't get away with.”

The Grinch stole Christmas, and liberals have been trying to steal Thanksgiving.
Liberals are always looking for a platform to push their economic policies and bash capitalism via the media. Thanksgiving provides an opportunity for them to do both. Leading up to Turkey Day, liberals have consistently discovered inventive avenues for attacking businesses and philosophies they don’t like while promoting their left-wing policies.
