'The National Archives Edited a Women's March Picture to Be Less Critical of Trump' by Catherine Kim

Catherine Kim writes for Vox, “The National Archives is facing criticism for editing an image of the 2017 Women’s March in order to make it less ‘political’—and for making the photo less critical of President Donald Trump to do so.” The institution admitted “that it had blurred signs that were critical of Donald Trump, blotting out the name of the president at least four times.” It also blurred signs that had words related to women’s anatomy.

Kim notes, “Archives spokeswoman Miriam Kleiman told The Washington Post that the organization decided to alter the images to avoid controversy, considering the current political climate. … Of course, as observers like historian Marama Whyte have pointed out, by censoring the image, the Archives have created a political controversy over the accurate preservation of historical records and the appropriateness of a federal agency erasing criticism of a leader.”
