Lefty rags like Mother Jones wouldn’t exist without dudgeon -- low, high or in between. But surely they can give it a rest on Thanksgiving? No! Thanksgiving is a day to get especially dudgeony for good progressives. (You know, the kind of morally serious individuals that would publicly compare a lost election to the 9-11 attacks.

One blog on the inanities in CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour's impassioned address at the Committee to Protect Journalists dinner against granting any respect to conservatives in the "news" media product is not enough. In a second look at the transcript, one can see how Amanpour complained that Hillary Clinton was judged by an "exceptionally high bar" and Trump an "exceptionally low bar."
She also insisted, as many at CNN do, that the fact-based journalist never accepts a rebuttal on the "empirical scientific evidence" of global warming.

Call it a big-league freakout (in tribute to our new PeOTUS). Or maybe mass insanity. I prefer to call it the National Tantrum.
It’s hard to tell which group has lost its grip on reality more -- liberal activists or their brothers and sisters in arms in the media. The activists are protesting, marching, rioting and vandalizing their way across lefty America, because conservative America wouldn’t tolerate it. Meanwhile, journalists are almost acting worse.

The New York Times released a full transcript of its on-the-record chat with the President-Elect, and while the liberal media sensed a "softening" of Donald Trump's campaign rhetoric, climate skeptics were pleased he brought up the "Climategate" scandal that liberals would rather forget.
Back in 2009, the Times refused to propagate revealing e-mails between climate-change activists (usually described merely as "scientists") because they were "acquired illegally." This was not the Times standard when someone (perhaps illegally) left the newspaper a few pages of Trump's tax returns.

Conservative Google Play and Apple users have taken advantage of an app that is used to review media outlets – taking complaints about liberal bias to the grass roots, which have certain outlets a bit concerned.
According to Digiday, since the election, many news publishers such as CNN, Mic, Quartz and USA Today have been bombarded by one-star reviews and citing “liberal bias” as their main complaint.

Rolling Stone has a new article about how "sex workers" are supposedly so outraged about the election of Donald Trump that they are now actively working to oppose him. Is that for real? The magazine hasn't exactly had a very good track record on sex related stories after that discredited article about a certain rape on campus has proven.

What would Thanksgiving Day be without more gushing over the Obamas? The Washington Post on Thursday declared That Michelle Obama’s “departure from the East Wing signaled the end of a singular era for American fashion.” The piece by Robin Givhan contrasts with the writer’s bashing of the looks of conservative women such as Carly Fiorina, who she mocked as a “style bully.”

Even on his way out the door, they can't get off their bended knee. The last eight years have provided countless examples of media fawning over President Obama -- make that last dozen years, since his coming-out party at the Democrats' national convention in Boston.

Since Donald Trump's election, environmental zealots have mostly had a very rough two weeks — and Donald Trump has had nothing to do with any of it. Two developments they consider really bad (meaning good for the rest of us) far outweigh the single item they're celebrating. First, in Wyoming, just two days after the election, their "fracking is bad" Exhibit A in Pavillion, Wyoming was completely discredited. Second, in Texas this week, a huge oil discovery was reported — so big and unprecedented that the only commenter at the Associated Press's coverage of the story at the Washington Post wrote: "This ... should be front-page news given its economic and geopolitical impact" — but of course it's not.

As soon as the liberal media realized that their candidate was losing the presidential election, they began to have a breakdown – and NewsBusters captured their priceless reactions.

Steven Petrow, the Washington Post’s LGBT political correctness czar (and occasional advice columnist) wrote one of those annoying liberal columns about “surviving” Thanksgiving with the haters titled “How LGBT people can survive Thanksgiving in a President-elect Trump world.”
Captain Politeness shared a tweet that said: “Not all Trump supporters are racist, but all of them decided that racism isn’t a dealbreaker. End of story.”

There are few if any signs that the left's unhinged behavior in the wake of Donald Trump's electoral victory is subsiding, even among those in positions of significant authority and responsibility. In addition to CEOs and university professors, we can now add the category of "high-ranking journalist" to the list of those who, since Trump's victory, have been unable to keep their violent emotional inclinations in check.
Michael Hirsh, Politico's national editor, who has previously served as the foreign editor and chief diplomatic correspondent for Newsweek, has resigned after publishing the home addresses of an Alt-Right leader and proposing that he and someone with whom he was corresponding visit the closer of those two addresses with "baseball bats."

The New York Times not only interviewed Donald Trump on Tuesday, they came out of the interview and made a 45-minute podcast about it. In that, reporters Maggie Haberman and Michael Barbaro demonstrated their liberal distance from the president-elect, comparing his demeanor at the start of the interview to an "unhappy kid." Haberman also suggested he seemed like a child in dismissing two Republican Senators who lost after walking away from supporting him for president.

In a classic example of “Never Say Die,” more than two weeks after Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was declared the winner in this year's race to occupy the White House, a group of computer scientists and election lawyers are urging Democrat Hillary Clinton to demand a manual recount of ballots, saying they noticed some “statistical irregularities” in key swing states.
Computer scientist J. Alex Halderman has asserted that voting machines across the nation “have serious cybersecurity problems” that open them up to hacking. He also emphasized that there’s currently no evidence that machines in key swing states that went to Trump were hacked, but it’s necessary to examine physical evidence to make sure they were not.
