Kerry shockingly says:  “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.”

CHICAGO, IL —U.S. Senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), chairman of the Senate Banking Subcommittee on National Security and a member of the Appropriations Subcommittee that funds the U.S. State Department, today issued a statement after Secretary of State John Kerry said news media should not cover terrorist attacks so, in Kerry’s words, “People wouldn’t know what’s going on.”

“Kerry’s irresponsible comments feed into the public’s concerns after the Ben Rhodes scandal that the Administration wants the press to be an ‘echo chamber’ that perpetuates the White House’s preferred narrative instead of reporting the truth about ISIS terrorism, Iranian terrorism financing after the flawed nuclear deal, and other national security threats to the American people.”

BACKGROUND:

At remarks in Bangladesh on August 29, 2016, Secretary of Kerry said:  “[I]f 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.”
