Israeli Paper Airbushes Women Out of Picture

Former FBNYer Neal Ungerleider pointed us to a story from Israel that the country’s ultra-orthodox paper, Yated Neeman, airbushed two female cabinet members out of a picture. Many publications ban pictures of women because it’s a violation of female modesty. The pair were replaced by two men who are not cabinet members.

UPDATE: A reader wrote in with the following note — “Only 1/2 true. The other woman is the wife of the ousted president who’s appealing a conviction on rape and sexual harrassment charges.”
