Saudi TV Blurs Out Michelle Obama

After haredi newspaper photoshops female leaders out of Paris picture, Saudi producers take it a step further.
Upon arriving in Saudi Arabia Tuesday to pay a condolence visit following the death of King Abdullah, Saudi TV showed US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama walking down a red carpet and meeting key dignitaries, including the newly-crowned King Salman.

But apparently perturbed at the first lady’s lack of Islamic attire – and, alas, unable to photoshop her out of the shot – the producers at Saudi state TV came up with a different, even less subtle approach to protect their viewers’ eyes from temptation: the massive blurred column.

You have to admit, it is effective.

    Why? I thought Michelle was a dude? A dude in drag, but still a dude. Though whoever is responsible did a damn good job.

    I wonder if this was broadcast on Saudi television?
    Or, does it, who that his YouTube page.
    Here’s another case of concealment of the face, on broadcaster TV show. it’s only a few seconds. I can’t believe, that it throughout the broadcast.

    In touching the wearing of hats, and scarves to cover, every gate head, among Jews and Moslems – I don’t understand, what does it have express?
    Why men are allowed to be without, and women should be with?
    I personally, would never agree to that.
    for me, a hat is heat the head in the winter.

    This story is a MEDIA beat up.
    A deliberate diversion away from the real issues.
    That is the role of MAINSTREAM MEDIA to hide the truth from the people.
    King Salman is to old & in dubious health to rule Saudi Arabia effectively.
    The knives of the hopeful contenders to the throne are sharp & at the ready.

    MICHELL OBAMA is not a stupid woman –
    If it had been necessary for her to wear more suitable garments – her minders woulfd have informered her & she would have done so.
    Just because her husband is an idiot does not mean that Michell Obama is.
