Secretary of State John Kerry came up with a plan to end terrorism, calling on the media to simply stop reporting on terror attacks.
Kerry spoke to the press on Monday in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and effectively blamed the media for terror attacks, noting that they could “do us all a service if they didn’t cover it quite as much.”

“No country is immune from terrorism,” Kerry said in his first trip to the South Asian country. “It’s easy to terrorize. Government and law enforcement have to be correct 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. But if you decide one day you’re going to be a terrorist and you’re willing to kill yourself, you can go out and kill some people. You can make some noise. Perhaps the media would do us all a service if they didn’t cover it quite as much. People wouldn’t know what’s going on.”

@weeklystandard To those it isn’t already apparent to, this means “Just lie to the people so they don’t know anything about reality”.

John Kerry suggests the media no longer report terror attacks. Great idea. Saves Obama from having to call them something else.
