I saw this Friday on the (duly praised) Foreign Policy Passport Blog, who wins with another photo-related post. I haven’t seen anyone else mention it so I’ll ‘bump’ it along. “Orthodox paper photoshops women out of Israeli cabinet”.
Quoting the FP piece, “The Israeli ultra-Orthodox newspaper Yated Neeman reached new levels of Stalin-esque photoshop audacity by doctoring photos of Israel’s new government to remove female ministers Limor Livnat and Sofa Landver and replacing them with male ministers.”
The Stalin reference is a little out there but this is a pretty strange thing to see. Editing current events rather than whitewashing history? Is this a new development? Really, how will this work?
