Main Article Content
The research discussed how the Islamic State uses the media to spread their propaganda especially the exploitation of modern communication technology. Then we examined an essential aspect of how the mainstream media deal with ISIS media. We also discussed how we could respond to the narrative of the Islamic State in the era of new media technology. We concluded that ISIS relies on all media outlets from the mainstream media to digital platforms and social media (Facebook and Twitter...); to reach public supporters and opponents for its barbarous ideas. However, mainstream media and Social networks have taken norms against terrorist and extremist groups; and have defined rules of employment that prohibit the use of their services to promote terrorist activities.
