White House press secretary Josh Earnest says the war against ISIS is “in some ways […] just a war of narratives” on Morning Joe Monday.

“We can also work to lift up the voices of prominent, patriotic Muslims in the United States, there are millions of them,” Earnest said. “They can speak to the poisonous, empty, bankrupt mythology that is being propagated by ISIL. In some ways this is actually just a war of narratives. And so we want to make sure we’re getting out our counter-narrative against ISIL, and we’re having some progress.”
