How the Fight Against the Islamic State Is Being Covered

Charlie Winter comes back on the show to discuss how the Islamic State, and the campaign against them, is being covered. Some of the topics we discussed include:

  • How the fight against the Islamic State is covered in the media and political discourse
  • Differences in how the Islamic State is covered and discussed in the US vs the UK
  • The focus on military solutions at the expense of political and diplomatic ones
  • How governments can improve the non-military aspects of the fight against the Islamic State
  • Challenges posed by trying to quantify success in counter-narrative campaigns
  • Projects Charlie is working on at GSU
