George H. W. Bush started this tradition. Not sure they could make much of a controversy out of a democrat continuing a tradition that started with a republican. Plus if they say its somehow bad then they are advocating the death of a turkey. Could be a funny controversy.

I could be wrong but I thought it started in the 40s or 50s. I Think Bush Sr just made the pardoning an "Official" tradition.

The origins of the tradition of pardoning the White House turkey are unclear. Many credit President Harry Truman with starting the informal and lighthearted tradition in 1947. However, the Truman Library says that no documents, speeches, newspaper clippings, photographs or other contemporary records are known to exist that specify that he ever "pardoned" a turkey.[1][2] The Eisenhower Presidential Library says documents in their collection reveal that President Dwight Eisenhower ate the birds presented to him during his two terms. President John F. Kennedy spontaneously spared a turkey on Nov. 18, 1963, just three days before his assassination, but did not grant a "pardon." The bird was wearing a sign reading, "Good Eatin' Mr. President." Kennedy responded, "Let's just keep him." President Ronald Reagan deflected questions in 1987 about pardoning Oliver North in the Iran-Contra affair by joking about pardoning a turkey named Charlie, who was already heading to a petting zoo.[1]

Since 1989 when the custom of 'pardoning' the turkey was formalized, the turkey has been taken to a farm where it will live out the rest of its natural life. For many years the turkeys were sent to Frying Pan Park in Fairfax County, Virginia. From 2005 to 2009, the pardoned turkeys were sent to either the Disneyland Resort in California or the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, where they served as the honorary grand marshals of Disney's Thanksgiving Day Parade. In 2010 and 2011, the turkeys were sent to live at Mount Vernon, the estate and home of George Washington.


-wikipedia

Regardless of when it was started, it was made an official tradition in the 80s. Fox news dont have much leverage to make this into a controversy.

Fox News and Sarah Palin Hate Obama's Christmas Card, Dogs

We already know Barack Obama hates Christmas. Also he loves Christmas a little too much. That doesn't matter right now. What does matter is that Fox News and Sarah Palin hate dogs!
The official White House holiday card makes no mention of the word ‘Christmas’ and instead focused on Bo the First Dog based on the wishes of the First Family…
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin told Fox News & Commentary that she found the card to be a bit unusual.
"It's odd," she said, wondering why the president's Christmas card highlights his dog instead of traditions like "family, faith and freedom."

Sarah Palin then went on to say, "I think this dog situation shows Obama's inability to deal with...uh...gee golly, our economic...uh...situation. Bo? Bo sounds like such a foreign name, i wonder if they have his pedigree papers? I've also heard his dog pals around with a Saluki (arabian hound dog) down the street from the white house. In the end i think Obama just bought a dog to distract us from obamacare, and Benghazi!"
