Pres­i­dent’s sev­ered head blurred

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - FREE TV -

scene fea­tur­ing the sev­ered head of Ge­orge W. Bush has been blurred by ed­i­tors of Game of Thrones (pic­tured) so it can no longer be iden­ti­fied as that of the for­mer US leader. Pranksters caused con­tro­versy when they put a mock-up of Bush’s head on a spike in episode 10 of the show’s first sea­son. The ed­i­tors felt sure the split-sec­ond im­age would stay an in-joke but ea­gle-eyed TV view­ers saw it and hit the in­ter­net, spark­ing crit­i­cism on TV blogs and web­sites. Out­raged HBO bosses pulled the episode from iTunes and halted ship­ments of the DVD.
