Conservatives have a lot of disparaging names for the media. We call them the drive by media, the lame stream media and even the “main stream media,” which is not a compliment.
If we have any doubt that the mainstream media is the lap dog media, at least where Obama is concerned, all doubt has been erased.
What has happened?
Obama’s 13-year-old daughter went to Mexico for spring break. The story began popping up on the media. It centered around Malia, her 12 friends and the 25 Secret Service Agents that went to Mexico to protect her.
Almost immediately, the stories began mysteriously disappearing from the web. The Blaze put up a story, not only about Malia Obama going to Mexico but the mysterious disappearing stories about this.
Now, the Blaze may have partially solved the mystery but it does nothing more than proves the media is in the tank for Obama.
From The Blaze:
The White House has admitted to telling news agencies to pull stories on Malia Obama visiting Mexico for spring break, Politico reports.
Kristina Schake, Communications Director to the First Lady, emailed Dylan Byers:
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.
The Blaze first noticed the disappearing stories Monday afternoon, when accounts of Malia and 12 friends visiting Oaxaca with 25 Secret Service agents mysteriously began turning into broken links.
However, in admitting to “reminding outlets” about not reporting on the Obama children when there is “no vital news interest,” the White House has also tacitly admitted that Malia is (or now maybe was) in Mexico for spring break. Additional evidence has surfaced confirming that. One site has published a photo of the Obamas going to church on Sunday. It notes that Malia is absent, and says that’s due to the Mexico trip.
Gee, the Obama regime is now telling news outlets what is and is not news. There is a vital news interest here. It is the fact Obama has no problem sending his daughter on vacation to Mexico at a huge cost to the taxpayers while we are in the middle of the Great Obama Depression.
How much has Malia’s excellent spring break adventure cost the taxpayers?
Given the secrecy of the Obama regime, we will never know.
The real issue is not the “privacy” or even the “security” of the children. Obama strolls them out as props for his political agenda all of the time. The real issue here is many Americans are losing jobs and homes, thanks to the policies of the Obama, Pelosi, Reid axis of fiscal evil. Many more Americans cannot afford vacations, yet the Obama family travels on the taxpayer dime, rubbing it in our faces.
Every one of these news outlets that pulled that story should now run a story demanding to know what the cost to the government was so this child could go on a fun spring break.
There are a lot of families in America who would love to send their kids on spring break, but thanks to Obama couldn’t do so.
Anyone want to bet they would be really offended by this?
Anyone want to bet whether the lapdog media is going to ask any of these questions?
My bet is no.
To be a journalist you have to be both a liar and a coward.
Its an exchange program; Malia, her 12 friends, and 25 Secret Service Agents can go to Mexico for Spring Break and 20,000,000 Mexicans get to come to America Forever.
Pravda has been resurrected as a tabloid-type paper run by ex-staffers - actually had some coverage of Sheriff Joe! They seemed to think it might be a big deal.
WILL ANYTHING BE DONE WITH THIS TRAVESTY ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE? I'm glad all you fraking liberals and The Obomination bootlickers approve of this.
Since when does ANY parent allow a 13 year old to dictate where she's going on spring break, if she's going at all.
Judson you are absolutely right the fraking Main Stream Media will do nothing about reporting this. We all know it's because they have their collective heads stuck up The Obomination's backside. They are bought and sold like a five dollar hooker, and the Obomination is the pimp. This shows me beyond a shadow of a doubt that ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, CNBC, and FOX aren't fit to wipe my backside, much less report the news.
Hey Bill Maher, still happy you donated to the Obomination's campaign?
The time for talk is over. I am tired of getting bent over the table by a POS that isn't even a citizen. Civil War is coming folks, when this kind of garbage is perpetrated on The US Taxpayer.
I'm sorry folks, I don't mean to be so nasty, but as the frustration and bitterness level continues to rise, its a lot harder to keep from going to the next level and doing something I surely will regret, so the blogs get nastier instead. I suppose I should be careful as I'm probably on the FBI's "person of interest" list, with all my anti Obomination rhetoric.
I cannot but agree it will come to force of arms. How do you spell cecede? The laws of the land are ignored by Washington-all of them. Otherwise they would have arrested and impeached the liar already. FBI hitlist. You bet we are on it.
DID YOU MEAN TO SAY : THE obummer ' COMPLIANT ' MEDIA ??????????????????????????????
WE USUALLY CALL THEM THE LAMESTREAM ENEMEDIA .
>>> DID YOU MEAN TO SAY THE obummer ' COMPLIANT ' MEDIA ?????
WE ALWAYS CALL THEM THE LAMESTREAM ENEMEDIA .
What's wrong with the beaches of Florida & California for "Spring Break" ? French Riveria ?? Hawaii?? (Oh done that one (-:) !!)
This proves that the 'conventional press' is dead, and is just another 'department' of the government... This is why Obama & his henchmen want to control the internet...
We must "Outlaw Communism" again.
Why would any self-respecting media form want to be anybody's lapdog! What can Bozo hold over these people
that they should choose to so obviously be his puppets? Have they been threatened--and with what? The "pied piper"
of treason plays a pretty mean flute to mesmerize so many fools, doesn't he? "I speak, you jump!" No wonder
he thinks white people are stupid!!! The "free press" doesn't even KNOW it's been silenced! The situation is dangerous
and beyond pathetic.Even Fox News, our last hold-out, seems to waffle at times. Will they wake up before their "fear"
and their "fuhrer" take All their Freedoms???
He is their choice. The main stream media is owned by the entertainment companies. There owners are communist sympathizers. They were and are his promoters.
