It's enough to make an MSMer nostalgic for the good old days of the Soviet Union, when the masses didn't stampede into stores because there was little of interest to buy and little money to buy it with, and the good stuff was reserved for the ruling elites at special shops.
Here's how ABC's Dan Harris opened today's Good Morning America: "This morning, Black and Blue Friday. America's annual orgy of capitalism gets dicey." Capitalism? Really? Is that the problem?

Good Morning America host calls Black Friday an orgy of “capitalism.” Ping to Today show list.
Who sells commercials to capitalize on black friday... Hypocrites of the highest order...
Yet they cover it wall to wall.
ABC: “We’d prefer a proper diet of Marxism.”
The people at ABC would have people get in line and be given(issued) FREE (crappy)TVs!!!
I’ve been hearing these stories about how awful holiday season shopping is since I was a kid 50 years ago. Nothing’s changed. The same media types who hated the cruder aspects of a free-market economy (crazy consumers) are still at it. Much better in their eyes to have a soviet-style economy where people could share their misery in their rabbit hutches while reading Marx and Lenin.
This was the first thought that went through my mind. ABC is a for-profit enterprise. Dan Harris is, I feel fairly certain, PAID for his work...
And those who criticize it like this idiot Dan Harris, 1000% guaranteed he lives on the upper West side of Manhattan in a multi-million dollar condo with a pool, gym, doormen,a limo that takes him to work and every other thing that would portray one as a “capitalist pig”. There is no greater example of hypocrisy on this earth when it comes to liberals. And they are absolutely blatant about it.
Yes, check this out - I just looked up this idiot. His brother is a “Venture capitalist”. Oh what an orgy of capitalism!
“Harris’ father is Jay R. Harris, the chair of Harvard’s radiation oncology residency program and recipient of the 2007 American Society of Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology Gold Medal. His mother, Nancy Lee Harris, is a pathologist at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and is a world authority on lymphomas. Harris’ older brother, Matthew Carmichael Harris, is a venture capitalist.”
Will they call Obama’s time an orgy of fascist socialism?
Did ABC call the re-election of a failed President (Obama) an Orgy of Freeloaderism?
Eff ABC right in the MSNBC.
I call it a snapshot of the breakdown of our society.
Then we can all agree to not patronize any advertiser on ABC, tell them so, and why.
Benjamin Rush complained about this, at the time of the beginning of this republic, to being a “bedollared nation”.
But, John Adams then scorched him for what he said.
We are a nation where one can pursue individual happiness unfettered by government. If that means many find this as scurrying about in pursuit of a black friday sale, so-be-it.
These lib dimwits are relentless subhumans...no?
I don’t have a problem boycotting ABC’s capitalistic sponsors peddling their materialistic wares to those black Friday shoppers.
The overall capitalistic side of things: Manufacturers identification and production of a consumer want is fine and healthy.
The thing here is ABC doing its usual, denigrating capitalism when more at issue here is the orgy of consumerism.
