First, this one about one of the Obama girls going on spring break with her class to Oaxaca Mexico. Initial press reports about it on the Internet were "scrubbed".
An AFP report that President Barack Obama’s 13-year-old daughter, Malia, is spending spring break in Oaxaca, Mexico appears to have been completely scrubbed from the Internet news sites that first reported it. Pictures have appeared in Mexican magazine Quién.com allegedly showing Malia visiting Oaxaca.
AFP, the French news agency, first reported around mid-day Monday that Malia Obama was vacationing in Mexico with 12 friends under the protection of 25 Secret Service agents and a number of local police officers.
Second, this one, which happened an hour ago:
A strong 7.4-magnitude earthquake hit Mexico on Tuesday, shaking central and southern parts of the country, collapsing a pedestrian bridge and swaying buildings in Mexico City. Plaster fell from ceilings and windows broke in the center of the capital, but the president said there were no immediate reports of major damage.
The initial quake near the borders of Oaxaca and Guerrero states was followed by a less powerful, magnitude-5.1 aftershock that also was felt in the capital.
Oaxaca. Hmmmmm. First the first daughter goes there, THEN there's an earthquake. COINCIDENCE??????
(And by the way, she's okay)
P.S. The "scrubbing" of the Malia Obama story isn't a big mystery. Kristina Schake, Communications Director to the First Lady, confirmed to Politico's Dylan Byers that the White House that it asked news agencies to remove the story:
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.
