Art critic calls Fox News "sexually sick" for blurring out breasts on famous Picasso painting.

Courtesy of The Sydney Morning Herald:  

A leading US art critic has blasted a Fox news station for being "sexually sick" after the network blurred out the breasts on Pablo Picasso's The Women of Algiers (Version O) in a report about the masterpiece selling for a record-breaking $US179million ($227million) in New York on Monday. 

The New York magazine senior art critic Jerry Saltz took to Twitter to voice his disapproval, tweeting: "How sexually sick are conservatives & Fox News? They blurred parts of the Picasso painting #SickMinds." 

His consternation was echoed across various other Twitter users, who labelled the move "bizarre" and "pathetic", with one user including the hashtag #freethenipple, referencing the recent campaign against censorship of the female form. 

Here is the un-blurred versing of the painting.

Oh my god it'''s...well it's really nothing.

And remember this is the same network that regularly covers spring break so that they can show scantily clad women twerking, and once had a guest declare that women who are victimized by upskirt photos were asking for it.

Not only that but the female hosts on the various shows are famous for wearing short dresses and revealing enough decolletage to embarrass a Las Vegas showgirl.

Oh yeah Fox News should be the ones judging what is, or is not, prurient.

And what the hell is it about nipples that makes THEM the part of the breast that must not see the light of day?

This has bothered me for years.

It's just stupid.

    My first reaction to the edited picture: nipples bad, Ass good.

    WTH??? They cover stylized nipples of stylized figures, but they leave the ass sticking out like a sore thumb.
    I guess...

    The old guys always watch Fox And Friends waiting for the moment for Elizabeth Hasslebeck to recreate the scene from Basic Instinct while wearing her tight dresses 2 inches from her butt.That is why they sit on a couch and not behind a desk, it's not just to create that "casual" feel for the audience, but it is there to create a feel for the old farts.

    Candy Crowley would be tossed to the curb, Fox knows their audience.

      And the joke is on them because she wears her running shorts under her on-air outfits. Always did on The View, too.

    "Sexually sick?" It's much broader than that.

    Gryph, it's so well known a country and western singer wrote a song about the women of Fox News and it pretty much says it all.

  5. I think whoever made the decision to blur out Picasso's tits is sexually repressed and needs to get laid.

      There whole audience is sexually repressed but the old farts can tell their wives "I am watching Fox News"

      I am an upstanding , church going man. Where do you think Sarah got her cue from? I am holy but dress like a ho so who is going to have Putin all hot and bothered? Sarah or Hillary! That's diplomacy for "ya.

    That is hilarious. Paint nipples are blurred. Of course Fox is pure, they don't show nipples. Next they will blur all paint. Poor things.

    Maybe cuz it reminds the old farts of how much they lurved their mommy's.

      And they tart them up for the old white men.
      Yet classic artwork is blurred. Come ON.
      Those women are cut down to "there" for a reason.

    Fox news is about as useful as nipples on a man. Can anyone iimagine Chris Christie, on the beach, in a thong and nothing else? Their like dogs that chase cars, chase em all you want, but if you don't know how to work them, why bother?
    "Sexually Sick" is putting it much too kindly.
    I vaguely remember someone giving a speech and having the naked female artwork in the back ground draped with sheets. Had to be a republican, but maybe someone else remembers. I was laughing too hard and drinking way too much.

      Go on You Tube sometime and watch meteorologists outline weather front in shape of penises. No one seems to have a problem with that.

      Jealousy will get you nothing libbo. Fox has not only the best looking gals but the most educated as well, fact, look it up!

      The FOX apologists' best reply: FOX is #1. Hold the celebration. If being #1 denotes success than heroin is a huge success. #1 among junkies everywhere. Hmm. Similar career path. Selling an addictive substance to shut ins, and those who do get out occasionally to stock up on diapers, Readers Digest or Guns and Ammo and for the youngins a 6 pack of Bud and score some crank.

      To Dan "the crab man": Heroin is the #1 drug of choice for many junkies. And is FOX is the #1 choice of the most ill informed viewers in the USA. Fact - Look It Up!!! Research has shown the FOX viewer knows very little about the topics, the FOX viewer is fond of the headline and the 10 second in depth report. I.e., Obamacare will destroy America, Negro is not a proper race for a POTUS, the economy is tanking under the Negro. Dow through the roof, job rate reduced, healthcare for ALL Americans, Money is being printed by the Corporate World. Our status i the world has been preserved. So, as far as FOX is concerned, they are stuck in 19th century news reportage. Piss and Vinegar with nothing worthy of being called journalism.

    Remember the repukes in 2002 bought drapes for the spirit of justice statue because one boob was visible. So when the repukes gave news conferences they would close the drapes. I guess they couldn't contain their chubby's looking at a metal boob.

    FOX News is absolutely beyond belief in its objectification of women. Who writes this stuff? Who are the editors and producers of these news shows? Maybe it is time to publicly shame their ignorance. I am so embarrassed as an American by their behavior. One day the network calls out Muslims for how women are treated in their countries, then it hires one more blonde bimbo, to satisfy the old white male viewership, and then it censors art? WTF? The network is all over the place lately, which tells me it is seriously trying to figure out its demographic.

    I guess we can be grateful that it wasn't a Modigliani they were coping with.
    That would have been funny though.

    Fox executivrs must all be bottle babies.

  14. They have so many centuries to take care of. Let's start just by being Eurocentric with the ancient Greek culture. There aren't enough bandaids on earth to cover up those nasty tits. Now if we could find a way to cover up those nasty minds.

    This is what women have put up with for years. Nothing new here, and we learned this a long time ago. Men can be homely ,be overweight, be balding.. What women look for is how you are treated, what you have in common. We are so willing to look over men's weight, men's aging we know this! Men still see women as an extention of themselves and how they will be looked at by other men.It will never change as long as you have the Kardashion's with there big butt's and society worships the young, the fake boobs and botox .

    No one is allowed to age gracefully anymore unless your a man.I see it all the time, a women has a baby and all they think about is losing weight and yoga and losing themsevles in the process.That won't sustain you when your in your 50's or 40's you better have a relationship built on more than sand

    Ask yourself this, if you are sick? will they be there.In times of hardship, will they be there, or is your worth by the looks.

    Fox is worried about showing nipples on a painting while lying and distorting the news is no biggie to them. If they're such prudes maybe the females on Fox should all wear turtle necks and pants instead of short skirts.

    It appears there are a lot of folks are watching whether they like it or not. Most watched "news" programming on TV. The actual news is too ugly for most to bother with anyway, so may as well not pretend to report it.
