Hillary Clinton Deemed Too Sexy for Jewish Newspaper

OY, VEY!

If he's paying attention, conservative mogul Rupert Murdoch just found a way to rejuvenate his iPad app.

By now, everyone's seen the captivating photo of President Obama and members of his staff intently watching the US raid which resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden.


Iconic. Intense. Made even more so by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's hand over her mouth in a natural act of shock -- or maybe a cough. Even staffers crowding in the doorway -- like Director of Counterterrorism Audrey Tomason -- adds to the theatrical feel of such a momentous event.

Too bad they're missing from the photo printed in Ultra-Orthodox Hasidic Jewish newspaper, Der Tzitung.


According to Rabbi Jason Miller from The Jewish Week, this particular newspaper refuses to print photographs of any women because they can be construed as "sexually suggestive." Apparently, a woman watching terrorists being slaughtered is a pretty big turn-on for the paper's staff.

Miller notes that, oddly enough, simply by altering the photo, Der Tzitung may have violated the Jewish legal principle of g'neivat da'at (deceit). Not to mention the White House's disclaimer that accompanied the photo:

"This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House."

So much for keeping sex out of the media.
