A Picasso sold for big money at auction and so it’s kind of news. $174 million big.
The leftist media has been attributing this act of (minor) censorship to “Fox News,” despite the fact that “Fox 5” appears right in the bottom corner of their pictures — that is, it’s a local affiliate.
Here’s the New Yorker’s art critic:
How sexually sick are conservatives & Fox News? They blurred parts of the Picasso painting. #SickMinds pic.twitter.com/5PGw5h5iBs

He just ignores the “Fox 5” in order to spread The Narrative.
But certainly FoxNews would censor it, if it covered this story, right?
Wrong. Fox News proper did cover it– uncensored. Boobies intact.

Mother Jones then gets super-funny by showing other paintings with thedirty parts blurred out.
While these hens hector Fox News about censorship that didn’t happen — one searches in vain for the Charlie Hebdo cartoons on the New Yorker, or Mother Jones.
Almost the entirety of the “mainstream” — actually, leftwing media– either embargoed the Charlie cartoons completely, or cropped/censored them so that none of the Forbidden Art would offend their readers.
Fox lies. Yeah. Right.
Mother Jones is a garbage heap.
On a good day.
Whichever local affiliates here in Utah that even showed that painting at all did the same as the local affiliate of Fox5 above.
It’s for the (Mormon) children, you see.
These people (the state is at 49% Mormon) rule the state and censor even such TV shows as Murder She Wrote!
Old movies with Humphrey Bogart are also censored!
The background painting over the bar in old Westerns is censored!
Bartenders are not allowed to pour you your drink in front of you……because of ”the children” ….but must do that behind a ”Zion Curtain.”
Fox News did NOT censor that painting, I saw it on Fox.
And Greta, she’s not a conservative.
She was originally hired at Fox News to balance so many conservative views with her liberal ones.
She used to be at CNN which couldn’t pay enough to keep her a few years back.
She did have some plastic surgery when she first joined Fox News BUT most of the time she barely wears make-up as she dresses in mens’ style dress shirts and suit-like blazers.
The main reason she doesn’t sound like most of todays’ other liberals in the media is that (by her own admission) people at Fox News have been so nice to her, listening to her opinions and debating in a civil manner.
This moderated her views only in comparison to rabid liberals who debate no one but hurl ad hominum attacks at conservatives in general at the other networks.
@Nanny G: Fox News is a cable program and free to provide all the nudity they would like. A broadcast local news is subject to FCC rules. I am sure Obama would just LOVE to sic yet another government agency on a Fox affiliate.
“A sex-fueled, Playboy-like cult?” Very strange.
