Rock ‘n’ Roll has always been about rebellion. But now rock’s latest transforms an innocent first kiss into a lesbian make out and even includes throwing babies on the floor. (For reference, please turn to Avril Lavigne’s latest music video).

In the midst of Avril Lavigne’s new “Rock N Roll” video released August 20, the music halted for a make-out session – or, rather, a “first kiss” – between the pop star and “The Wonder Years” actress Danica McKellar. When their alcoholic dog dies in a car crash, the two weep in remembrance that “no one could lick his own balls quite like he could” and console one another by embracing.

No, really — it has. And it’s all Congress’s fault. (Well, not all of Congress. Just Republicans, who want to “hurt Americans.”) You can tell how serious these rabbit-killing budget cuts are when the Huffington Post writes about them under the banner “Sequestration Ushers In A Dark Age For Science In America.” Ooooh, ominous.

So, what exactly is the story? The least dramatic telling of it is at Grist, which reports that the National Institutes of Health was forced by sequestration to trim $1.7 billion from its budget. Among the projects that were deep-sixed was research on human retinal degeneration at the University of Utah medical school. The project director, ophthalmology professor Robert E. Marc, is distraught not only at having the rug pulled out from under his research but at having to kill his colony of genetically modified bunnies.

As NewsBusters previously reported, the perilously liberal Huffington Post published an article Friday incorrectly claiming, "Sean Hannity is set to be bounced from Cumulus, the second-biggest radio network in the United States."

Eight hours after it was published, the headline and the text were radically changed to reflect that Hannity was the one doing the bouncing.

It turns out “comedy” does have limits, as Russell Simmons discovered when he allowed the outrageous “Harriet Tubman Sex Tape” to be posted to his YouTube channel.

Simmons, founder of hip-hop label Def Jam, published a “Harriet Tubman Sex Tape” parody to his “All Def Digital” YouTube channel Aug. 14. The disturbing video showed an actress playing Tubman, the historic former slave turned Underground Railroad pioneer, engaging in sex with her white slave master in front of a hidden camera.

Forget traditional sleepovers full of facials and chick flicks, sexual sleepovers are the latest fad – or so The Huffington Post Blog says.

The Huffington Post’s Soraya Chemaly asked parents in her latest article, “How Do You Feel About Sex and Teenage Sleepovers?” She argued that parents should encourage them, unless they “just like porn and think it's a fine substitute.” Chemaly schemed, “Why would you create a situation where your children are forced to hide, sneak around, be dishonest, be uncomfortable, take unnecessary risks and make uninformed decisions about their physical and emotional health?”

On Monday, the perilously liberal Huffington Post put the following headline on its front page:

6 Famous Documentaries That Were Shockingly Full Of Sh*t

 

Unbelievably, one of the films totally lambasted in the piece was - wait for it! - Bill Maher's "Religulous" from 2008 (serious vulgarity alert):

Here's a headline you probably never imagined you'd see about Barack Obama at the perilously liberal Huffington Post:

DID HE LIE ON NATIONAL TV?

Yet there it was:

That darned Byron York. If it hadn’t been for his meddling, the Huffington Post and its allies on the left would have really created quite a mess for themselves spreading a false story that former Republican senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum somehow thinks that liberals are out to make pro-lifers feel uncomfortable taking a shower in public places.

While it is true that Santorum did mention the subject very briefly in a speech recently to the group Students for Life, the context in which he did was completely left out by the rabidly left-wing website. Eager to smear Christian conservatives, the Post ran with this breathless headline: “Rick Santorum: Liberals ‘Make It Uncomfortable For Students’ To Shower At The Gym.”

The Huffington Post wants to make Catholic colleges more gay. So, HuffPo Live hosted a segment called “Rainbows  for Catholic Colleges” on Thursday, and discussed how to undermine Catholic teaching and push the gay agenda on Catholic campuses. (Because Heaven forbid there be any institution left standing that hasn’t capitulated to postmodern morality.)

The panel included no traditional priests, not a single traditional Catholic student, and not even a straight Catholic layman.  Nope. Just three gay guys. There’s diversity for you.

Since the Huffington Post was first launched, NewsBusters has been warning people to skeptically view anything published by the disturbingly liberal website.

President Obama somewhat agrees, for according to The Hill, he told House Democrats he met with Wednesday "not to believe everything you read in The Huffington Post."

As though there weren’t enough gay on TV already, ABC just hired gay screenwriter and LGBT activist Dustin Lance Black to write a new gay rights miniseries based on his life. The Hollywood Reporter announced that the new show is planned to be a “semi-autobiographical” drama “based on and told from Black’s background and experiences as a gay rights activist.” 

Huffington Post picked up the story and reported that the miniseries “will be told from Black’s perspective about his life growing up gay in a Mormon household to becoming a leader in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights movement.”

Never one to miss the chance to smear Christianity and push gay marriage, the Huffington Post is hyping a new edition of an old book proposing that the ancient Christian church held gay marriages.

A sensationalist HuffPo sidebar lead with the teaser: “Ancient Christians held gay marriages?” On the HuffPo’s Gay Voices page, the banner was emblazoned with the provocative suggestion: “ANCIENT I DO’S?”  The sub headline made it sound as if the story were breaking news: “Historian’s claims spark controversy.”
