License to Edit
But a Hareidi newspaper, Der Tzitung, that is printed in Brooklyn decided to delete Clinton straight out of the picture. In fact, they also deleted Audrey Tomason, the national director of counterterrorism, who can be seen peeking through on the right side. The paper deleted the women because printing photos of women in a newspaper is sexually suggestive and thereby inappropriate. The paper deleted the women even though the White House Flicker page states that the picture may not be altered in any way. Should the editing that Der Tzitung engaged in be allowed if it is on religious grounds? How far is too far in this issue?
