Extremism Spotlight Series

The Counter Extremism Project has highlighted the online presence of dangerous extremist propagandists known to law enforcement and intelligence communities as well as notorious extremist content with links to violence in its Extremism Spotlight series. Continuing to allow this material to remain online to radicalize followers and incite violence is inexplicable. One-time removals for positive public relations are only a part of the effort, as content can sometimes still be easily found. CEP has strongly advocated for industrywide standards for automatic removal online for those individuals with demonstrable links to violence.
