Tuesday's Daily Brief: Introducing HuffPost Voces, Murdoch Bombshell, Bin Laden Death Anniversary

Tuesday, May 1, 2012
Arianna Huffington: I'm delighted to announce the launch of HuffPost Voces, a Spanish-language vertical that will bring the power of HuffPost's blogging platform to the legacy of AOL Latino, which has been devoted to telling the most important and most entertaining stories about Latino life in America since 2003. At Voces, we will use all the tools at our disposal to capture the diverse voices that make America what it is. More than 50 million Latinos live in the United States, yet we have a debate that, regrettably, is far too often detached from the Latino experience. So there's no better time than now to renew our focus on the shared human values that are so key to solving the many problems and challenges we're facing as a country.

Evan Shapiro: Sex Is Bad
Welcome to TV in America, where violence, no matter how malicious or senseless, is just fine but sex is decried, maligned and verboten in all but the most secure corners of the schedule. TV's ban on sexuality not only covers scenes of nudity or sexual acts, but our very language itself.
Dr. Peggy Drexler: Turning Boys Into Men: 4 Ways to Expand Your Son's "Boy Power"
We as a culture have held fast to the idea that we need to protect the boundaries between male and female. This is wrong, and even dangerous. Instead, we need to be reframing the discussion, and asking: What makes a boy a boy?

Free the Animals tells the riveting, real-life story of the people who put on disguises, use fake IDs, or jimmy their way into laboratories in order to carry out the daring rescues of animals used in experiments and of the insiders, the whistleblowers, who risk their jobs to help them.
