    Fox News blurs out breasts in Picasso painting

    I think someone at Fox got a little overzealous with the nudity policy

    Pics at link.

    A leading US art critic has blasted Fox News for being "sexually sick" after the network blurred out the breasts on Pablo Picasso's The Women of Algiers (Version O) in a report about the masterpiece selling for a record-breaking $US179million ($227million) in New York on Monday.

    They probably thought that was Kim Kardashian in her famous spandex outfit getting into a car so that was acceptable.

    What idiots
    You don't get a medal for switching alliances just before the result, as it becomes apparent the other team is set to win.

    Hoax or perhaps a local station? This isn't the FOX news that all libs love to hate. I saw with my own eyes there was no blurring of the Picasso.

    From the link in the OP:
    In the screen grab of the report on Fox5NY, which covers New York City, the nipples of three female figures are blurred out, despite its significance as a major artwork.

    They have since repented:
    On Thursday morning, Fox 5 addressed the controversy, saying the blurring was done by a producer on the night crew. In response to the ridicule on Twitter, the channel showed the full, unblurred version.

    I think they counted wrong. Isn't that a fourth figure at the very front that was cut out as well? Mind you, I can only make it out when standing on my head.
    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance

    prediction: the overnight producer will be promoted for generating so many new clicks to the Fox website.

    Good for them nipples are not attractive, jmo. And Picasso paintings are way over glorified or looked at as art when they are nothing to look at to me, like some demented person painting. jmo idk weird to me.
    It's my opinion if no link provided.

    Aside from individual aesthetic taste, jmo it's pretty funny that a producer thought these were even remotely realistic nipples

    I think they're given so much weight in the "art world" because he helped to pioneer Cubism - people just naturally associate his name with it. His older works(Blue Period, Rose Period, etc.) show that he was a fantastic realistic artist.

    This article makes me laugh hysterically. Why, I see plenty of real nipples(unattractive ones, imo, to be sure) every day on people mowing their lawns - in public! - and I have never once needed to get the smelling salts out to revive myself as as a result.

    I suspect that most people wouldn't be all that offended by seeing this, either, if they'd left it the way it was(though I may be wrong).
