Re: If Secret Service OKs Ahmed, maybe, Irving School officials should
The problem with the media giving terrorists coverage that you mention is spot on. Between their ability to recruit and post "news" via social media and the coverage and notoriety that regular media gives them, they have a platform that attracts copycats and people who sympathise with them. In the case of the lone wolf criminals, they revel in the coverage by the media of their crimes. It reminds me of very long ago when i used to watch baseball games and some idiots would run on to the field and disrupt the game, the television cameras would show them and the announcers would comment and have a laugh. After a while that was stopped. Now when someone runs on to the field, the cameras do not show it and the announcers say nothing other than someone is on the field. It cut down to almost zero these incidents.
