Inside a Guerrilla Media Network

I just started reading this very interesting report released in March by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty:
The Al-Qaeda Media Nexus: The Virtual Network Behind the Global Message.

This report explains how the online jihadist media network
works. It traces the links between armed groups, media
production and distribution entities, and internet forums to
reveal the hidden structures that disseminate Al-Qaeda’s
claims and ideas. It also provides policymakers, analysts, and
interested readers with a conceptual vocabulary to describe this
guerrilla media network in order to clarify our discussion of how
best to counteract its influence.
