<p>On Tuesday night, the &ldquo;big three&rdquo; networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC saw no reason to inform their viewers of Secretary of State John Kerry&rsquo;s assertion that he could recognize there having been a <strong>&ldquo;rationale&rdquo;</strong> and <strong>&ldquo;particularized focus&rdquo; </strong>for Islamic terrorists to carry out the January attacks in Paris on the offices of<em> Charlie Hebdo </em>but not for the <strong>&ldquo;indiscriminate&rdquo;</strong> attacks that occurred in the very same city on Friday.</p>

<p>Speaking in Paris, Kerry first declared that, compared to Friday&rsquo;s terrorist attacks, <strong>&ldquo;there&rsquo;s something different that happened with Charlie Hebdo, and I think everybody would feel that.&rdquo;</strong></p>
