The Brooklyn weekly Di Tzeitung, an orthodox Jewish newspaper digitally deleted US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Counterterrorism Director Audrey Tomason from a photo of President Barack Obama and his staff monitoring the raid by Navy SEALs that killed Osama bin Laden.
On Monday, i.e., 9th-May, newspaper has apologized for digitally deleting and said that it doesn't publish images of women, printed the doctored photo on Friday. It issued a statement saying its photo editor hadn't read the "fine print" accompanying the White House photo that forbade any changes. The newspaper said it has sent its "regrets and apologies" to the White House and the Department of State.
Di Tzeitung said it has a "long standing editorial policy" of not publishing women's images. It explained that its readers "believe that women should be appreciated for who they are and what they do, not for what they look like, and the Jewish laws of modesty are an expression of respect for women, not the opposite."
