Coverage of so called Islamic State (IS), as with the reporting of the jihadi threat in the “war against terror” in general, continues to be confused, even in the hands of the most effective practitioners. The extremists' loss of control over their caliphate is not being ignored but the story is being constantly obfuscated by a lingering determination to buy into a frame of terror exactly echoing their hyperbolic rhetoric.
