I don't necessarily agree with their decision, but I can see why they might have done it. They were kind of in a no win situation. Their goal was to promote their show without getting bogged down in the partisan political crossfire that permeates out everything. If they left it in, then every right wing new outlet would jump on the story that leftist deepstaters have taken over the national archives are engaged in a partisan operation to take down Trump, to be followed by presidential tweet and senate investigation of their department, and firing of whomever authorized the photo. It's probably better odds to hope that no one notices the omission than to hope that no one notices the inclusion.
