Local Fox News Station Blurs Out Cubist Breasts Of Record-Breaking Picasso Painting

May 15, 2015

But they didn't blur the giant ass in the middle? What do you have against tits and not butts? Or -- OR -- could you not tell that was a butt?

Fox 5 in New York decided the beautiful (albeit somewhat hard to recognize) titties in Pablo Picasso's Women of Algiers were a little too risque for the news when reporting on the record-breaking $179.4-million dollar sale of the painting, and decided to blur them out just in case they were to give people boners and/or turn them into sexual deviants. Women of Algiers is the most expensive painting ever sold at auction, and the fifth most expensive painting every sold at all. I wonder whose decision it was to make the blur. Because that is a little ridiculous. If I were the newscaster I would have bothered the weatherman's draw-on-screen capabilities to draw even bigger boobs on the painting. Will they have laser nips? PROBABLY. Oh -- and what's this? It's a giant penis in the sky! Man, I would make a great newscaster.

    MURICA ! They are thinking kids are going to get cubic erections !

  • Bubbubsky

    NIPPLES ARE AN AFFRONT TO JESUS.

    Don't blame the news station. Blame the FCC.

  • The_Wretched

    Bull. No sane FCC would give a rat's fart. So far as the FCC does care it's the right wing xtian puritan pushing them.

  • Bilbo

    Nah, stations have been able to show artistic renderings of nudity before.

    This is all Fox News, and the fucked up, sexually repressed conservatives that is their demographic.

  • Mike Harper

    It's not Fox News like the cable channel. It's a local Fox station and it very well could be their policy. Their demographic in NYC is hardly conservative.

    If there is one part of the body that's wholesome and does no harm, it's the breast.....except for that watermelon woman on YouTube..

    I cant believe you just made me search for "breast smash" but was worth to see the famous "Steve Harvey jawdrop" http://i.imgur.com/hTZNNGy....

  • The_Wretched

    When can she come over?

  • shashi

    After signing the liability waiver and NDA

  • Xockszky

    Oh they would. Also, I wonder how many pearl-clutchers phoned the station to complain about the uncensored ass?

  • PlaysWithWolves

    Probably thought they are complying with the law.

  • Toastrider

    I seem to recall certain networks being unwilling to show pictures of a certain religious figure. Stones, glass houses, etc.

  • Dirk_The_Impailer

    This is not "Fox News". This is a local Fox affiliate (the not-so-conservative folks that bring you "Empire" every week). This would be like your local ABC channel news department doing something dumb, and people blaming ABC News.
    I don't care. I just want to be fair. And to be honest, the real story here is what sort of absolute dumbass would spend that much money on a painting that is that ugly??? Personally, I think they should just blur the whole thing out.

  • MorningPanda

    That's why the title says "local fox news station".

  • Richard H Sanford

    And yet, there are comments about "Fox News", as if Rupert Murdoch himself came to the studio and demanded that the picture be censored "for teh puritanlulz" or somesuch. But, don't let me get in the way of people's screeds.

  • Bobba_Fett

    Facts only matter if they don't contradict the narrative, I guess

  • BMan56

    Can we just blur out Fox News?

  • Jeremy Tilton

    I dunno, Picassos tend to give ME boners... but that might be because I have a thing for chicks with down's syndrome

  • Jenness

    Fox has aired so much worse, bet it was just this one guy in graphic design who did it as a joke
