Media Scrubs Malia Obama Vacation Story

Once again there is a double standard. The WhiteHouse doesn’t want the media talking about Obama’s kids but Obama brings them up all the time on the campaign trail, but here’s my question. Why is that The State Department has stated that due to the violence in Mexico, that Americans should not travel there and yet it’s okay for one of Obama’s kids to go there without either parent? Are the Seceret Service also doubling as a baby-sitter? If so that is an abuse of power but then again so is everything else Obama does. Don’t get me wrong, the kids are not the problem, Obama is. And how many vacations do these people get? Even the military only get 30 days a year.

That’s my opinion anyway.                           1 Dragon

Media scrubs Malia Obama vacation story

By DYLAN BYERS, Politico | 3/20/12 12:24 AM EDT

The AFP, the Huffington Post and other websites have scrubbed a report about  first daughter Malia Obama’s Spring Break vacation.

On Monday, the AFP reported that Obama’s daughter was vacationing abroad,  along with a number of friends and 25 Secret Service agents. The story was  picked up by Yahoo, the Huffington Post, and the International Business Times,  as well as UK publications like the Daily Mail and the Telegraph and other  overseas publications like The Australian.

But on Monday night, the story had been removed from those sites .The AFP  page for the story now links to a story titled “Senegal music star Youssou Ndour  hits campaign trail,” as does the Yahoo page. The Huffington Post page now links  directly back to the Huffington Post homepage. The Daily Mail, Telegraph, and  Australian stories now lead to 404 error pages, reading “page not found.” The  International Business Times story also links to the IBT homepage, though a  version of the original story still exists here.

UPDATE: Kristina Schake, Communications Director to the  First Lady, emails to confirm this was a White House effort:

From the beginning of the administration, the White House  has asked news outlets not to report on or photograph the Obama children when  they are not with their parents and there is no vital news interest. We have  reminded outlets of this request in order to protect the privacy and security of  these girls.

    I have all I can do to put gas in the car for groceries and Dr. appointments. Obama’s Zambo is vacationing in Mexico with 12 friends and 25 secret service agents (plus what other entourage). I guess that’s Obama’s fairness and everybody share the pain!
