Fox News Censors the Boobs in Picasso’s Cubist Painting

While reporting on the record-breaking Christie’s auction sale of Picasso’s “The Women of Algiers” ($179 million), Fox News evidently decided that highly abstracted boobs and crotchal regions of the women depicted in the 60-year-old masterpiece were too indecent for their highly educated viewers. So they blurred them out and also covered them with a title banner.

Let’s let this sink in. Picasso. 1955. Painting. Abstract. Cubism. Women’s bodies.

Way to be Fox News, Fox News. We’d expect nothing less of you, and thank you for contributing to our cultural apocalypse.

    This is a local Fox affiliate – not Fox News. It says it RIGHT THERE ON THE SCREEN, but hey, never let facts get in the way of a good slander, right?
