The Hunt: ISIS still has significant presence on the internet

Organizations that monitor terrorist activity on the internet say they are still finding a lot of dangerous propaganda, more than two years after ISIS was defeated.

On this week’s edition of The Hunt with WTOP national security correspondent J.J. Green, Joshua Fisher-Birch, a researcher with the Counter-Extremism Project, says the responsibility lies with both ISIS and internet companies.

He also spoke about internet material connected with domestic right-wing extremists.
