White House strong-arms photo agency to squash Malia photos
TMZ ^ | 7-8-14

Posted on 07/09/2014 3:13:16 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

Malia Obama went to a famous L.A. restaurant Monday night -- a restaurant regularly frequented by celebs and paparazzi -- and when the White House found out a photog took her pic, they went into DEFCON 1 to KILL the photos.

The 16-year-old went to Gjelina in Venice, CA with some friends. The photog got the pic as Malia walked out and then sent it to the AKM-GSI agency to sell. The agency posted the pic on its website for media outlets to purchase, but several hours later The First Lady's Office called AKM-GSI and asked them to please take the pics off the website and delete them from their files.

We're told Michelle Obama's people told the agency they had promises from various media outlets not to photograph the 2 girls when they were not in the presence of their father.

AKM-GSI then agreed, sending an email to the media with the subject, "URGENT SET KILL NOTICE."

The text reads, "Please delete the set of Malia Obama from your archive. The set was sent around earlier today. We cannot distribute this set."

Now here's what's interesting. Malia has been in L.A. over the last few weeks, doing an internship on Halle Berry's TV show for part of the time. Then she showed up at a famous restaurant -- Secret Service in tow -- with photogs all over the place.

So is this a case of the President and First Lady taking precautionary action, or is this a concerned famous mom and dad flexing their muscles?

Was the daughter wearing her T-shirt with the peace sign?

Don’t forget the Bush girls. The press was ruthless.

“What is “The First Lady’s Office” ???”

The Office of the Fist Lady, OOTFL, is constitutionally empowered to mind your child’s caloric intake, discipline, education, and global warming, racism, white privilege and diversity indoctrination.

Wait...

The disturbing news is not that this WH moves to suppress the media, it’s that the media so obediently complies.

This is why one doesn’t see Dem politicians children shown at their worst. Their media friends help them cover it up. This is why the antics of the children of Conservative politicians should not matter to Conservatives. The media will hate us one way or the other.

She has "people?" Who pays for these "people?"

Reminds me of the pix of Chelsea lying on the floor of a London pub — drunk, or stoned.

We know how it works. Families of marxist politicians get special treatment. Families of normal people are trashed.

No problem with this. The girls are not politicians.

BUT, the left needs to use the same standards with the children of conservative pols.

Then again, the left has no honor.

mal-
a combining form meaning “bad,” “wrongful,” “ill,”

Probably not the best choice for a name.

Interesting that the media told us about every breath the Bush twins took yet they won’t go near the Obama offspring.

You don’t “squash” stories or photos. You “quash” them.
What passes for journalism these days.

And, just what does this child’s forehead have to do with her EVIL parents. For goodness sakes she was only coming out of a restaurant, not laying on the sidewalk in Memphis, TN in a body bag like Jimmy Carter’s daughter.
