More Obama Press Censorship? US Weekly Disappears Article on Sasha Obama Birthday Party
Saturday, June 9, 2012 | Kristinn Taylor

US Weekly is the latest media outlet to withdraw an article about the Obamas. Friday evening, the celebrity gossip magazine posted an article online entitled Sasha Obama Hosts 11th Birthday Party at Red Robin.

The article has since been pulled, but the URL with the title remains in Google search: http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/sasha-obama-hosts-11th-birthday-party-at-red-robin-201286. Clicking through gives this message from US: "OOPS! The page you’re looking for isn’t here. But don’t give up!", followed by instructions to use their search engine.

The text of the pulled article read:

Sasha Obama is excited about turning 11 -- so much so that the First Daughter celebrated the occasion several days early at Red Robin in Dulles, Virginia!

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama's youngest daughter -- whose actual birthday is June 10 -- joined her mother, 48, older sister Malia, 13, and 10 friends for a low-key birthday bash last week, Us Weekly can confirm.

The group dined on a variety of items, including chicken sandwiches, cheeseburgers with avocado and milkshakes. "Before leaving the restaurant, the First Lady left a generous tip for the server and tapped management on the shoulder to let them know 'everything was wonderful and the girls had a great time,'" a source adds.

The girls' father, Barack, 50, was not in attendance -- not that he wasn't there in spirit. He's currently in the midst of a reelection campaign, and on June 7, the former Illinois senator met with 25 young Hollywood stars -- including Jessica Alba, 31, Zachary Quinto, 35, DiannaAgron, 26, Ian Somerhalder, 33, and Sophia Bush, 29 -- at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

"Just spent my morning with [POTUS] talking about green energy, a better America and being a young American," Vampire Diaries star Somerhalder tweeted. "Wow."

The article was picked up last night by Yahoo! Movies and was online there as of this writing.

The Obama administration has successfully cowed the media into disappearing articles about public travels by the Obama children this year. Articles about eldest daughter Malia's Mexico vacation with classmates from Sidwell Friends school were taken down under pressure for alleged security and privacy reasons. Last month articles and a photograph about Malia attending a One Direction concert in Fairfax, Virginia, were similarly pulled. Now this article about Sasha's birthday party at a public restaurant accompanied by her mother, the First Lady.

The Obamas pick and choose when they want their daughters in the spotlight. In February, the Obama reelection campaign started running Web ads featuring Sasha and Malia with their parents.

The Obama campaign is selling campaign buttons and refrigerator magnets with the same photo of the Obama children with their parents. The image is a taxpayer funded photograph taken by official White House photographer Pete Souza.

Amen to that kristinn. I am amazed how so many media organizations submit their Constitutional First amendment rights to the approval Barack Hussein Obama.

Disgusting. Are there NO real men left in journalism, or have they all turned into five year old children asking permission to potty?

Jessica Alba is the only name I recognize. It’s official. I’m so far out of the loop that I have become my father.

The Obamas want it both ways

And apparently - so do you.

Maybe the White House wants the media to leave his kids alone.
Maybe for their privacy.


Really? Did the media create these ads using his kids to beg for money?

The media don't have to "touch" the Palin Kids. The Palin kids have a hard enough time staying away from reality TV. Of course - their Mom demands they be left alone - unless she wants to use them for props.

The President and his family have every right use their kids as props if they want. Their call. And if they demand privacy in some instances - their call, also.

I’d say it’s about Moochelle Obama’s hypocrisy, since there isn’t anything on the Red Robin menu that is less than 1200 calories.

FR always screaming “leave the kids alone” ...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

Say what? I’m not easily offened but when I hit report abuse one time as a poster referred to ‘Slasher and Malaria’... nothing was done.

Other than that - I have no problem commenting on them when the media does so first.

Obama's media is styled after Stalin and the Communists.

Orwellian bastards, all.

Oh come on now! Does anybody really care that Obama’s cute little designer rugrat had a birthday party? That’s just being nosy, because it definitely isn’t news. Nobody cared when all the other presidents’ kids had parties. I don’t blame them for doing a media blackout on this one.

This is about the subservient news media that caters coverage to the dictates of the Obama regime.

As stated in the first post....in case anyone missed it.

No we don’t really care what the kids do as long as its not at our expense. We do care that BO is controlling the media.

Back in my Crusading Reporter days, we never pulled stories under pressure, unless it was a military thing.

We had a “boys will be boys” thing about politicians sexual antics, for example JFK sleeping with anything with a vagina and a pulse, but other than that, we ran with the stories.

The only story we ever pulled was our Bay of Pigs story. We had a few days early from Cuban sources in Tampa.
