White House Admits Asking Media to Scrub Reports of Malia Obama's Mexican Vacation

Excerpt: "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.

Must be nice to command such an obedient media."

And by the way, the initial post about Malia being in Mexico was removed from FreeRepublic, with an Admin writing "Leave the kids alone".

The Freedom of the Press is dead.

*

It’s not “the kids” that we’re “targeting;” it’s this insane, hypocritical, communist regime.

*

"I don’t have a problem with the story being scrubbed. It detailed which hotel she is staying at, how many friends were with her, etc. Mexico is overrun with violence and there is no need to advertise information about Malia that might endanger her life."

Her parents allowed her to go and it is they who put her in this position. IMO it is beyond presumptuous for BO and MO to think that our tax dollars should be used to fly their thirteen-year-old to Mexico, particularly considering the state of affairs in that country. Yes the SS is responsible for keeping her safe but this venue just pushes the entitlement envelope way too far.

*

"She’s a child and doesn’t deserve to have the press reporting her every move."

she doesn't deserve another million dollar taxpayer funded vacation either...

*

We got a lot of very bad attention for posting pics of her the LAST time she was wearing a peace-sign t-shirt in public, with a sullen expression, in a foreign country.
Better to keep her photos off of FR, frankly. I don't know why her dear daddy wants her exposed like this--he keeps bringing his kids into his fights, like when he went after Rush Limbaugh for that Flucker person. "I want ___ and ___ to be able to express their opinions without being called names." I don't think that's how it reads in the first amendment.

Obama gets more sordid and loathsome every day. And you'd think Michelle would know better than to allow it, but her supply of Wagyu beef may rely on hubby's reelction.

I was in Oaxaca (city) a couple of weeks ago and it’s a wonderful place and quite safe. If this disappears from the web, it’s only because Bambi doesn’t want to call attention to how much money his family is spending having fun in various parts of the globe.

I bet the Mexicans in Oaxaca hated this, btw. It wouldn’t have brought them any tourist dollars, it would have shut down the old city (which has colonial streets but modern traffic), and as usual it made Bambi and family look like arrogant freaks.

*

OUTRAGE ! unethical , illegal spending of OUR money like a priveledged monarchy
QUICK COVER IT UP !!!

EAT CAKE PEOPLE !!!!,

for some spoiled brat nothing to do whatever the hell she wants

this little perk has to be costing us at least 50 million a day for a week or so, all the while desrespecting our own country which could use the tourism dollars here at our own historical tourist destinations

WTH is wrong with Florida or New Orleans....Oh yeah, those places are low class now, overrun and ruined by welfare bums

*

I’m not in favor of ridiculing politician’s kids, although I do remember that all of them - until now - have been ridiculed by the press, conservative or liberal. Poor Amy Carter, whose sin was looking like any dorky 11-year old, the unfortunate Chelsea Clinton, who inherited her parents’ - uh - looks, the Bush girls, whose sin was being good looking and going out on the town (on their own dime) - I don’t think this was a good thing, but what I want to know is why the press suddenly developed such solicitude about Obama’s kids?

Oaxaca is not dangerous (I was there less than a month ago, so I can say that from personal experience) so there’s no more security risk there than anywhere else. IMHO, this radio silence is just to avoid stirring up the taxpayers by letting us know that we’re paying for the spring vacation of the heiress and a dozen of her spoiled 13 year old friends. That’s why I think it’s legitimate to talk about it.

*

Dude. I’m kinda cool with this. Let’s limit information about Obama’s family plans. Seriously. Lots of terrorists would love to strike at America any way they can.

*

If you want to hate Mexico, fine; don’t let reality interfere with your vision. But most of the country is perfectly all right and you’re safer on the street there than in many American cities.

Unfortunately, Mexico is poorer than it should be because it’s basically a socialist country, which is its major structural problem.

The reason Obama is being secretive about this is not because of security, it’s because he doesn’t want to attract attention to the huge costs he and his family have incurred for their vacations.

*

quite frankly I'm tired of my tax dollars paying for the wife, and kiddies to be taking all these people all over the world sometimes on MY dime.

I haven't had a vacation in over 14 years. All they do is vacation.

*

If the Obama’s loved America they would vacation here and spend money here to provide jobs here. Any American that vacations in Mexico spits on the USA.

*

"Sorry, the Secret Service could have moved her. Whitewashing the press is simply a violation of the Constitution and the Freedom of the Press. Dictatorship is here"


BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot believe we have freepers hailing the already in the pocket of O bama, press for scrubbing stories because King O bama said to do it. “cursing loudly”

*

There were plenty of stories about the Bush twins about where they partied and drank....none of them were as flattering as this story about MAO.

*

More money wasted!

A 13 year old does not need to be going on Spring Break to Mexico! Period! Especially when my tax dollars are paying for it.

*

I’m not too sure, tho, this is a technical violation of the 1st Amendment. He doesn’t have to ORDER the press what to say or not to say, he just says what he wants and it’s done. The ‘free press’ has, over and over again, violate its responsibility as a free press. It has been utterly corrupted. And I fully realize he is a dictator.

*

I agree that the media likely agreed to pull the stories. The problem is the abuse of power and privilege. Removing the stories after they were posted for hours on the internet was NOT a security measure. It was a political one.

How did making a few major news sources pull the story make the situation any safer for MAO?

*

if a Mexico trip was THAT necessary for Malia, perhaps Barack could have taken a tiny break from his golf and fundraisers and gone with her???

*

If parents want to send their kid to Mexico for Spring Break, that is their right, but when it involves my tax money, I have a right to know and comment about it. If a politician doesn't like that, then don't become a public figure spending my tax money on things like that.

*

I think wearing a peace sign in a foreign country is kind of provocative for the First Daughter, and this is the second time. You can tell it’s the second time because she’s older, taller, and looking a lot like her mother now, with that prominent lantern jaw and underbite. Not a flattering pic. Wish Daddy Long Legs would keep his daughters out of his election.

*

some peeps are acting like the commie sent his daughter 50 miles away to get an ice cream cone and that shouldnt be reported.


*

It’s not about security - its about the obamites trying to avoid bad PR over yet another extravagaet use of taxpayer money for personal pleasure during a depression for 50 million people on food stamps

Those poor little Sidwell kids could have had a wild spring break at Camp David


--- But remember - those 50 million people on food stamps are lazy and unwilling to work!!!

*

How about the wisdom of allowing your 13 yo to go off on a “spring break” with friends. I don’t care if SS agents are involved, or not. “Spring break” is entirely too “adult” for a 13 yo. Where will she be going and what will she be doing when she is 18?

*

"Spring break"? This kid is what, 13?
Sure, I was 13 once and I guess I can understand her wanting a break from parents of the likes of Barry and The Queen. But, sending your 13-year-old on her own vacation? To MEXICO?!

Beam me up, Scotty. If voters actually believe this Marxist POTUS is a "man of the people," you can color me an OLDgeezer because it's obvious that I'm the one who's completely out of touch.

*

I hate to say it, but would you put it past these cretins to put their child in play for a sympathy vote in November? I hope and pray she will be ok, and that she grows into being someone much better than either of her worthless parents.

*

Presidential children should be off limits only if presidents agree than MY children are off limits. Presidential BS does far more damage to my children than I can do to his.

*

If I added correctly, Malia is in the 8th grade, meaning she will be in the Upper School next year. Is this a school sponsored event or is it something 12 families did for their kids to mark leaving middle school behind? Did those 12 kids fly on our dime? Parents? Chaperons? BTW, did the Bush daughters have more than 1 SS Agent when they traveled? In no way would I fault them, they are doing their job, but 25 agents? Is that the norm? Wonder who made that decision.

*

My tax guy, an old family friend, has a 2008 magnet of the Obama family in his office. It turns my stomach every time I see it.

If he were not an old family friend, I would have dropped him because of it.

BTW, he is Black, so used to cut him a little slack for it, but if oBozo wins, I won’t go back to him next year.

*

So. The state owned media won’t mention that the girl gone wild in Mexico? I wonder if they made sure to bring some condoms since the government mails them for free to 12 year olds and don’t want them punished with a baby??

    Are they calling retirees on Social Security - their base - welfare bums?
