By blurring out parts of a Picasso painting.

Fox Channel Blurs Out Breasts on Picasso Painting

The Women of Algiers (Version “O), a painting by Pablo Picasso, became the most expensive work to ever sell at an auction this week. Sadly, some TV viewers of a New York affiliate of Fox were treated to a blurry, G-rated version.

The painting, which sold for $179.4 million at Christie’s auction house in New York on Monday night, shows several female figures in the Cubist style, including several pairs of breasts and a couple of errant nipples. Fox 5, the Fox affiliate in New York City, obscured three pairs of breasts and covered up two nipples with a news banner at the bottom of the screen.

If you have such an overwhelming desire to see a couple of breasts and some errant nipples, might I suggest you purchase the latest copy of Playboy magazine?
You are so obsessed with jumping on anything related to Fox, you come out looking extremely petty.

No but really sounds like you were bored if you are posting this.

Of all the things to worry about today, nipples on a Picasso (or no nipples) isn't high on my list.

I say give her some pasties!!!

It's NY City for God's sake - Fox5 did not want to be sued for any deaths in a 'safe space' stampede.

So the political correctness that slants coverage of real news is okay, but it bothers you at "a whole new level" that you missed some breasts?

Cable news channels are subject to the ruling of Television content rating systems.

We all know that a very important part of this masterpiece would be blurred out as well if one chose to show it on tv.

Highly doubt it's the Fox news. Most likely it's FCC.
