A Hasidic newspaper in Brooklyn has attracted national attention for defying explicit White House instructions and erasing Hillary Clinton from what’s arguably the year’s most powerful photo.
The Yiddish-language newspaper, Der Tzitung, also erased Director of Counterterrorism Audrey Tomason from the image, which was taken as President Obama and his top officials watched the raid that killed al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Der Tzitung left all the men in the photo. The paper’s decision to alter the image directly violates instructions from the White House, which decreed upon the image’s release that it “may not be manipulated in any way.”
