Pablo Picasso Would Be Rolling In His Grave After Being Censored By Fox News

 

 

Fox-Picasso

(Above: Picasso’s 1955 painting “Women of Algiers” with boobs and butts censored by Fox News and the uncensored painting on the right)

Soooooo, let me see if  understand this. A painting by Pablo Picasso, better known to his friends as PP, was sold at an auction this week and because the painting broke the record for the most expensive piece of art to sell at an auction, ($179.3 million) Fox News decided that this was news.

After all, don’t most of us own a Picasso and perhaps were interested in this story.

Why just yesterday I told my other half, “Gawd, if I only had a few extra bucks I’d have gone to that auction.”

Um….not to buy a Picasso, but to ogle the boobs and butt images in Picasso’s painting. Which…..when reporting this story, Fox News censored. Lest little children and animals see those images and are scarred for life.

Obviously the resule to being scarred for life from seeing butts and boobs when he was a mere puppy

Obviously the result of being scarred for life from seeing butts and boobs when he was a mere puppy

Of course Fox News got a lot of flack on social media sites for blurring out those body parts, and rightly so.

Jerry Saltz, the senior art critic for New York Magazine posted this comment on Twitter: “How sexually sick are conservatives & Fox News? They blurred parts of the Picasso painting,” He included the hashtag #SickMinds.

Sooooo. What did Fox say in it’s defense?

Well let’s see. Um…..how about blaming boob and butt blurring on…um…er…..the night crew. Yeah that’s it….the night crew. It was all their fault. Yeah, the night crew are all a bunch of old guys from a different era where boobs and butts are supposed to be covered.

Now you might think I’m slamming conservatives and the GOP (goofy old party) but keep in mind Fox New’s leanings, as well as the fact, (yes fact) that in 2002 Attorney John Asscroft….um….sorry…that should be, John Ashcroft had a 12 foot statue of the “Spirit of Justice” from the 1930’s covered up because, (gasp) it displayed a (gasp) exposed breast.

OMFG! Is THAT a breast!!!!

OMFG! Is THAT a breast!!!!

Oh yeah, he also ordered that a statue of a man, “Majesty of Law” have its midsection covered, which was displayed along with that other statue.

Um......what the hell are ya all laughing about?

Um……what the hell are ya all laughing about?

So…… so far we have one breast and a midsection that was deemed offensive by the former attorney breast and midsection general. Again….both have been on display at the Justice Department since the 1930’s.

I’d like to thank the web site, “Liberals Unite” for this story. One of the many pro and con sites I devour to get both poinst of view. Lest you think I only go to liberal sites.

Only because I like what I laughingly refer to as “facts” before I slam anybody. Including Fox News.

Um…..come to think of it…..how did they miss this one?

Oops....they censored Venus di Milo's  arms in error....

Oops….they censored Venus de Milo’s arms in error….

Now Fox most likely wanted to spare little children and animals, and a few conservatives …..um….ok a lot of conservatives the horrors (gasp) of sex before marriage and as the article stated, “the horrors of sex during and after marriage,”

Which, I think, you’d have to be married for over 40 years to the same woman to appreciate that last statement. My guess anyhow.

I think this explains my point

I think this explains my point

BUT….as noble as Fox News is in protecting little children and animals, they have no problem scaring the living bejesus outta us….including little children and animals by showing the burning alive of Jordanian fighter pilot Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh by ISIS.

WAIT!!!

Oh yeah. They did warn us before they showed that video by saying, “The images are brutal. They are graphic. They are upsetting. You may want to turn away. You may want to have the children leave the room right now.”

“Johnny, Sally…….leave the room RIGHT NOW! This is too graphic for you little kids to see.”

“But daddy, is it worse than seeing Kim Kardashians butt and boobs on the Internet?”

“Um……worse.”

mmmm

Ok….point taken…..

And Fox’s executive vice president, (not Joe Biden) John Moody explained their decision further: ” After careful consideration, we decided that giving readers of FoxNews.com the option to see for themselves the barbarity of ISIS outweighed legitimate concerns about the graphic nature of the video.”

Lest we forget that last year, all in the name of “barbarity” Fox aired a graphic video of a car chase that ended when the man driving the car shot himself on live TV.

“Ok folks…ya saw it here on Fox News first. We’ll be right back with more blood and guts after a word from these sponsors.”

Sooooo. As I understand this logic. Ya can’t see images of painted boobs or butts, but it’s ok to see people burned alive or shooting themselves on live TV. Again…..lest little children and innocent little animals be scarred for life.

Gawd bless you Fox News.

mmmmm

Um, can I still keep my girlie magazines?

Oh where oh where were you when I was a mere child to protect me from the ravages of boobs and butts. I’m scarred for life I tell ya. Life!

Um….my dog too.

We used to sit side by side when I was a teenager and ogle those boobs and butts displayed in Playboy Magazines I ripped off from Mr. Ferkenstein’s neighborhood store.

Now look at me. scarred for life. (sniff)

I can’t even bear to look at my other half’s boobs without feeling great remorse for my sins of the past for ogling all those boobs and butts.

I’m….(sob) soreeeeeee.sorry1

Ok….the dog is right. Sorry Fox News……..

    It’s disgusting. This is a network whose hosts say the poor people in this country have it too good because most poor people own refrigerators and has no problem hosting racist rants, provocations to international violence, and blatant propaganda day in and day out, but has to a drawing of a breast.

    Someday, we’re going to look back on this century and laugh.

    Fox News is mainly viewed by hard line conservatives. But that said, it IS interesting to look at all viewpoints, including Fox and then research the facts and see where they either lied, stretched the truth, or left out important factual information. You might appreciate this letter I found from a Canadian’s viewpoint of what’s going on in America:

    “You Americans Have No Idea Just How Good You Have It With Obama

    Many of us Canadians are confused by the U.S. midterm elections. Consider, right now in America, corporate profits are at record highs, the country’s adding 200,000 jobs per month, unemployment is below 6%, U.S. gross national product growth is the best of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries. The dollar is at its strongest levels in years, the stock market is near record highs, gasoline prices are falling, there’s no inflation, interest rates are the lowest in 30 years, U.S. oil imports are declining, U.S. oil production is rapidly increasing, the deficit is rapidly declining, and the wealthy are still making astonishing amounts of money.

    America is leading the world once again and respected internationally — in sharp contrast to the Bush years. Obama brought soldiers home from Iraq and killed Osama bin Laden.

    So, Americans vote for the party that got you into the mess that Obama just dug you out of? This defies reason.”

    When you are done with Obama, could you send him our way?
