A Crop for a Crop: Free Williamsburg Removes Male Images from White House Photo

Citing modesty concerns, hipster website removes “sexually suggestive” male
images from Sit Room

"Brooklyn-based Der Zeitung, a religious newspaper for the borough's ultra-Orthodox Jewish community, has a longstanding policy of not printing photographs of women, saying they are "sexually suggestive." When tasked then with printing the famous "Situation Room" photograph, which features Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Director for Counter-terrorism Audrey Tomason, the paper simply edited the photo to remove both women, thus sparing the Orthodox community the danger of being seduced by Clinton's coquettish pose and Tomason's coy glances."

All of this "news" made the Rachel Maddow show.
