Skip to comments.Media Scrubs Malia Obama Vacation Story (Ignoring a Travel Advisory is not "vital news")
Posted on 03/20/2012 8:45:58 AM PDT by tobyhill
The AFP, the Huffington Post and other websites have scrubbed a report about first daughter Malia Obama's Spring Break vacation.
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.

I’m sure they’re safe. After all they have the best security the American taxpayers can buy.
The Obama's p*ssing away MORE taxpayer dollars on vacations in this economy IS a vital news interest.
Though the fact the president allows his Jr High School aged daughter to take spring break in Mexico is of interest to many, as well.
It’s kind of interesting that the Lame Stream Media had no problem reporting when the Bush twins went to Africa, Europe or even the local bars.
With every breath they take while in office,
they cost us more and more money.
Vote them out, ASAP!
(Can you imagine the vacations that “the fam” is going to take between Nov and Jan if he loses?)
TEH REAL ISSUE: WHO’S CHAPPERONING?
Did the taxpayer pay for the entire group or did her classmates’ parents pay for their own. I do have a hunch
“TEH REAL ISSUE: WHOS CHAPPERONING?”
Sandy Fluke. Who else?
Q. What kind of parent would arm a country's criminals and then send their daughter to that country to vacay?
A. The kind that wants to confiscate the school lunch you packed, and give your young daughter free condoms...
Dear God, I hope they vacay!
Here's the alternative:
On Dec 21, 2012, Obama will have had a little over a month to stew in his humiliating, crushing and unexpected defeat at the hands of the American people.
Hell still be Commander in Chief.
Hell still have the nuclear football. Just sitting there. Staring at him. Taunting him. Daring him...
The Obamas act like they are ordinary folks, but actually they are elitist, out-of-touch hypocrites.
Isn’t this the fourth luxurious vacation Malia has had in the last 7 months (Martha’s Vineyard in August on a separate plane, Hawaii for Christmas/New Year’s-— for over two weeks on a separate plane, Colorado for skiing in February, and now Mexico for Spring Break)?
How many luxurious vacations have you or your children had in the last 7 months?
Not to worry Skeeter! As Obama's mentioned in the past, he obviously has them on contraceptives to prevent them from being "burdened with a child."
28 SS agents vs. a few hundred thousand (or more) cartelistas running around Mehico. Hope she's REALLY secure. Well, she IS one of Holder's people, so she probably fits right in down there.
Just maybe she is under the protection of the drug kingpins that have been doing business with Holder's men.
One would have to pray the military would disobey the order (be it unlawful) at that point. A prayer for such to be the case.
Just what is little Malia’s vacation costing the US taxpayers and are here 12 friends and presumably their adult chaperons also traveling on the tax payers dime? When the high cost of gasoline means that many Americans will not be able to afford to take a vacation this year, it is a slap in the face when little Malia and her friends from that tony rich kids school can cavort at a plush Mexican resort likely paid for in large part by US taxpayers.
Malia Spring Break story scrubbed.
National Security stories run.
It’s a very pleasant beach resort. My daughter and son-in-law took their family down there for vacation about 8 or 10 years ago.
One of the sights is the world’s largest tree.
But even back then, it was still, well, Mexico. My son-in-law went walking in the hills above the town with his daughters to catch the view, and was held up at knife-point by a young man who told him to empty his wallet. Now, with the drug gangs running rampant, I imagine it’s more dangerous than it was.
did the usurper tell maloo not to drink the water.
The REAL REASON this story is being scrubbed is because they do not want people starting to calculate HOW MUCH IT IS COSTING TAXPAYERS to pay for the TWENTY-FIVE secret service agents that are guarding Malia and her friends.
THAT IS THE REAL STORY HERE!
"It was my first assignment back from my vacation."
+1 for you. Good point. Praying harder than ever presently.
I am so tired of Obama. So beyond tired. So beyond tired of Liberal Media covering his butt too! I bet they wipe his a$$ with fifty’s too!
For the kids at her school this is probably a standard type spring vacation. Off to sunny place where they can stay in a 6 star hotel and visit an orphanage where they pass out cookies..to feel better. Then back to the beach/pool in their bikini’s and text their friends about who they are bonking.
Me too, and I’m an agnostic...
While i don't think that even Obambi would do that, I would not be surprised in the least if muslim bastage were to do something to cause an incident in the Persian Gulf that would spike the price of gas, tank the economy and burden the incoming president with a hot fire war across the Middle East. In fact I full expect that to happen.
If you haven’t figured out Obama is in the Cartel’s pocket, you have missed the boat. His daughter is not in any danger. Call it professional courtesy. Why do you think he pulled all the guards off the Mexican border? He’s been in cahoots for a long time courtesy of his Chicago roots.
including free republic with the comment
leave the kids alone
unbelievable. Not a word about the complicit media to cover this up...or how much it cost her SATURDAY to fly
‘Malia Obama landed in Oaxaca on SATURDAY with 12 of her friends and 25 secret service agents in tow. The teen flew from Houston on United Airlines, as originally reported by Mexican newspaper Milenio. The group was escorted to their hotel in three bulletproof SUVs, with some streets partially blocked off while the teens were en route.’-
Or why the two parents see it befitting to let a 13 year old travel to Mexico with 12 of her friends....
Thanks taxpayers, keep eating beans and weenies so there can be another Obama vacation at your expense!
Oh but ‘leave the kids’ alone’
Whether or not she is safe is not what I was saying. The taxpayers are PAYING for TWENTY-FIVE SS AGENTS to relax in the sun with Malia and her buddies! And that IS the story!
But photos and stories about the Bush girls getting a few drinks at a Texas nightclub is a vital news interest? Bullshiite. There is a double standard at play here and everyone knows it.
Duplicate subject thread here, with a lot longer comment stream:
Malia in Mexico story vanishing from the Web
Times247 ^ | 3/19/12 | Eric Ritz
Stories of the obamah's illegal immigrant auntie and drunk uncle come to mind.
When I went on spring break I was eating crackers piling 12 in a van.
This ugly kid is jetted down escorted by 25 SS staff on my dime.
I don’t give a damn what the obammy brats are up to.
What I am interested in is this one using 25 secret service agents to do anything.
There is so much wrong with this story I’ve no idea where to begin.
Is this a vacay or a school sponsored trip? I’m reading both versions. Either way, it is just plain foolish.
It sounds like the set up for a Harrison Ford movie.
Hoe the hell does Obama scrub a story on UK news sites?
oops, I say “Hoe”. Mamma gonna wash my mouth out with soap.
This is the real story behind the story, here. How does this administration get a UK paper to kill the story, a UK paper not all that in love with them.
The media: slavishly obeying their dictator Barack Hussein Obama (mmm mmm mmm).
Whoopsie: Down The Rabbit Hole Alice Media Scrubs News Of Malia Obama Mexican Vacation. Why? Perhaps Because Non-Essential Personnel Travel by government personnel and their families are prohibited ???
Update @10:40am Politico is reporting the News Sites were scrubbed at the request of the White House: Kristina Schake, Communications Director to the First Lady, emails to confirm this was a White House effort:
Plenty of time ahead to generously reward global warming/green agenda supporters, donors, czars, SEIU, ACORN (by its multiple aliases), CAIR, LaRaza, AFL-CIO, liberal judges (who ensure agenda), celebrities who openly and often endorse, fulfil pet projects for suportive democrats, and enrich loyal compliant mainstream media, et al.
Family events could include visiting the World Expo, to be held in May in South Korea and the Summer Olympics to be held in July in London.
Have you not seen the buddy-buddy relationship betweenb Cameron and O during the past week including the gift?
At least there would be a limited amount of time. Can you imagine the vacations they will take, if he wins?
The Drudge Report has a link to the story (on a Canadian paper’s website) which still was working as of a few minutes ago.
