There’s just no win­ning when it comes to sat­is­fact­ory levels of out­rage.

Fox News con­trib­ut­ors struggle with the nar­rat­ive that the protests in Fer­guson, Mo., cen­ter around civil-rights is­sues. The St. Louis Po­lice Of­ficers As­so­ci­ation finds the St. Louis Rams play­ers’ “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” ges­ture dis­taste­ful. Nowadays, every­one has an opin­ion about the prop­er way to ex­press an opin­ion.

Plus: A Christ­mas tree of ques­tion­able pro­por­tions ar­rives at the White House; the World Health Or­gan­iz­a­tion has a warn­ing for those re­cov­er­ing from the Ebola vir­us; and the first fam­ily sends out an in­ter­act­ive hol­i­day card.
