Disturbing Trend: Hating On Santa

Gone are the days of Christmas spirit, I've noticed a number of articles just hating on either Christmas in general or hating on Santa... Here are some notables.
1. "Hey Santa - Put Down That Cookie" - an article detailing America's problem with obesity and even Santa should be concious and aware of his weight, as he influences the youth. IS THIS EVEN SERIOUS? Someone with a journalism degree (and working at the Globe no less) said, this was a good article to run? http://www.bostonherald.com/news/regional/general/view.bg?articleid=1047979
2. "Police Hunt Rogue Elf" - an article talking about how the post office and police in Canada are searching for a "rogue elf" who has been sending filthy letters to children on behalf of Santa Claus (ex: Your letter is too long, you dumb shit kid). http://www.smh.com.au/news/world/police-hunt-filthy-santa-elf/2007/12/15/1197568301692.html
3. "Santa Is A Drunk" - It's "Santa" who is drunk, not the person wearing the Santa suit... so many holes in this story. http://slog.thestranger.com/2007/12/santa_drunk_and_at_liberty
