Fox News Censors the Boobs in Picasso’s Cubist Painting

by Christina Rees May 14, 2015

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.

Wow! I should send them a thank you note – not only does Fox News keep our lives fact free, it also saves us from cubist boobies.

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?

You mean people still watch FOX?

Not sure which is better, the Hieronymus Bosch or the Rothko.
