Where's Hillary?


Last week the Brooklyn-based Hasidic newspaper Di Tzeitung ran an official White House photo of 13 administration officials receiving "an update on the mission against Osama bin Laden in the Situation Room"—except that in Di Tzeitung's version, two of the officials were missing: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Director for Counterterrorism Audrey Tomason. What do they have in common? Hint: It starts with v and rhymes with Mulva. The paper has a policy against publishing images of women because they might be "sexually suggestive."

Jason Miller notes a similar incident in 2009, when the Israeli newspaper Yated Neeman, catering to the sensibilities of its haredi readers, clumsily stuck men's heads on the bodies of two female Cabinet members.
