Closing out Thursday’s NBC Nightly News, the evening newscast found it pertinent to tout a new campaign by the British edition of the liberal feminist magazine Elle to photoshop men out of pictures of elected officials in an effort to promote the global need for more women in office.

Anchor Lester Holt led into correspondent Stephanie Gosk’s piece by admitting that “it’s one thing to talk about the gap in power between men and women” but “another to see it before your eyes.” He continued by explaining that this represents “the idea behind a thought-provoking new campaign that’s making its point with the help from photoshop.”
