Feminism isn't just a brutal philosophy for millions of unborn children. It's brutal on the Internet. Take the website Jezebel.com, a reference to the prophetess in the Book of Revelation who was "teaching and beguiling my servants to practice immorality."

This summer, a Catholic priest in Gainesville, Virginia took to Facebook to help find an adoptive home for an unborn child with Down syndrome. It spurred a little press boomlet when hundreds of people called or e-mailed the church, volunteering to raise the child.

While climate alarmists and the media continue to link everything, including storms like Hurricane Sandy, to climate change, one scientist recently admitted to HuffPost Live that accuracy of forecasts is deteriorating.

Jane Long, Berkeley researcher and associate director of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, cast doubt on climate change forecasts in an Oct. 29 HuffPost Live segment.

Isn't it fascinating that as liberals push for same-sex marriage many of their ilk are always trying to destroy or defame the very institution itself?

Consider author Leah Hager Cohen who actually published a piece at the Huffington Post titled "6 Reasons Never To Get Married":

Chris Noth, a star of “The Good Wife” on CBS, isn’t as restrained a politician in real life as he is on TV. Black leftist Marc Lamont Hill spotlighted him as "fascinating" on HuffPost Live for tweeting: “Highest level of racism was showed yesterday when Republicans forced a shutdown of our government. Mostly because our President is black.”

Noth also tweeted “Every Tea Party member should be horsewhipped.” That wasn’t quoted by Hill. But Noth unloaded all the junk about Obama opponents being Confederates, and being un-American for opposing Obama and should "succeed" [sic] from the Union:

If Obama and his precious "Affordable Care Act" have lost the Huffington Post, they're both in a lot of trouble.

Consider this surprising headline prominently featured on the Post's front page at press time:

Obamacare Nearing 'Holy Sh*t' Moment

Lefty hysteria over the debt ceiling reached a new peak with the Huffington Post’s “A Survival Guide to the Debt Ceiling Apocalypse.” Hyping fears of what they call “defaultocalypse,” the article openly advocated readers to “panic,” “heavily arm yourself” and “train and befriend a wolf.”

This Oct. 14 article detailed the various financial risks of a national default, calling Republicans “insane” for allowing this possibility. Presumably, they intended to be humorous, but the dire warnings over default are consistent with the Huffington Post’s regular fear mongering over the Oct. 17 debt-ceiling deadline.

In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue … and committed the Original Sin of the liberal imagination. Peruse leftwing sites for observances of Columbus Day and you learn that the intrepid explorer brought only pillage, rape, murder, and enslavement to Eden of the Americas.

On Oct. 10, Yahoo promoted the latest attack on Columbus in Jay Bushbee’s “Slavery, disease, death: the dark side of the Christopher Columbus story.” Columbus Day, according to Bushbee, is a “dangerous farce.”

Over at The Huffington Post, socialist activist Jim Wallis is typically insisting that the Bible’s verses on the poor all underline that socialism is God’s demand in the current shutdown. We're not individually responsible for the poor, we must be collectively, bureaucratically responsible. 

“We're hearing lots of babble at the Capitol, but across the street, we're trying to hear the word of God -- what God says about the people, families, and children who will suffer the most because of Washington's babble,” he wrote. Don’t they know God wanted a statist “War on Poverty”?

NewsBusters readers know that one of the problems with liberal media members is their poor math skills.

Barbra Streisand demonstrated this perfectly Thursday publishing an op-ed on the tenth day of the new fiscal year that began, "As we now enter the third week of the unnecessary government shutdown."

 One way to know if a journalist is asking a softball question is when the President of the United States compliments the reporter after he or she asks it. That happened twice on Tuesday as Barack Obama talked to reporters about the government shutdown. The President called on Sam Stein of the liberal Huffington Post website. Stein dutifully wondered, "With Speaker Boehner so far unwilling to hold a vote on a clean CR, what assurances can you give to those affected by a shutdown who are concerned about an even longer impasse?"

He added, "And how worried are you personally that your preferred solution to this -- a clear CR at sequestration levels -- may do harm to the nation's economy and your second term agenda?" Finding the question appropriately fawning, Obama responded, "Sam, you're making an important point." The President looked favorably on a similar query from a New York Times journalist.

(UPDATE: Chad Henderson has locked down his Twitter account. His Instagram account remains, for now.)

Earlier today, I noted (at NewsBusters; at BizzyBlog) that "Obamacare Poster Boy" Chad Henderson, who was written up in the Washington Post, Huffington Post and several other news outlets, and who at one point was scheduled to appear on a Health and Human Services Department conference call (but ultimately didn't), has not purchased health insurance on the Obamacare exchange.

Before letting all of this fall down the media memory hole, John Sexton at Breitbart.com reported that Henderson "claimed earlier this year that he'd 'traveled to Florida' to help with Obama's reelection and also donated $1000 to the campaign" — leading to a further claim, complete with a photo of the alleged invitation, that he had been invited to the 2013 Obama Inaugural Ball. There's even more in Mr. Henderson's Instagram collection for the lazy establishment press to digest, including something they'll secretly love — an immature attack on Sarah Palin — after the jump.

(UPDATE: See Chad's response to Washington Post's Sarah Kliff at the end of this post.) If what Reason's Peter Suderman is reporting is correct — and he certainly appears to have done the kind of digging you would expect conscientious journalists to do — the establishment press's lionization of Chad Henderson the Fantabulous Obamacare Enrollee is about to fall apart.

Suderman spoke at length with Chad Henderson's father, Bill Henderson, and uncovered a litany of contradictions, inconsistencies, and what should have been red flags to journalists who apparently decided that the story was too good to check (links are in original; bolds are mine):
