TV Shows Blur Controversial Time Magazine Breast-Feeding Cover

Some television shows have been blurring Time magazine’s controversial cover, which shows a mother breast-feeding her 3-year-old son, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker.

The story is about Dr. Bill Sears and his advocacy of "attachment parenting."

"Time editors have made no apologies, arguing that the point of a magazine cover is to get attention. And attention it got across the TV dial on Thursday — although the image proved a little too much for many," the story notes.

"Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski said the cover bothered her, noting that while the story is about a male doctor, the image on the cover is a young, attractive woman. MSNBC blurred out the mother’s breast and showed the image from a distance, the story notes.

"The View" also talked about the image, but covered up the mother’s breast with a black circle, the piece adds.
