Is ISIS more active in recent weeks or is it just media coverage?

Asked by ANef_is_Enuf (26775points) April 9th, 2017

I can’t tell if it seems that ISIS and terror attacks worldwide seem to be happening more frequently in recent weeks or if I’m just noticing it more out of bias or possibly increased media coverage. Is there some way to look it up?

Don’t buy into the “media is full of lies and mistruths” propaganda. I believe ISIS is just as active as always, if not more so, I. They are getting their asses kicked and are/would becoming more desperate.
Also, BE AWARE! Russian operatives are active on the internet sowing mistrust. You can’t believe any one thing you find here/there. Do your own research with reliable resources, and most of all; NEVER ASSUME ANYTHING!!! Search the internet and/or news sources and read all you can find on the topic of ISIS. If many different sources confirm one POV, it is probably true.

Okay, let me rephrase:
Sometimes the news covers things more than other times because there is increased interest in the topic, that’s not propaganda, that’s reality.
My question is: has there been an increase in terrorist activity throughout the world recently (let’s say since the beginning of 2017) or is it just my perception based on what I’m seeing in the news? Is there any way to track or look up terrorist activity by graph or chart or date?

I can’t provide a link, but I google searched
Charting terrorist attacks frequency
There seemed to be a lot of options.

@Patty_Melt are you finding recent results? Everything that I’ve found is from several years ago, but I am not the greatest Googler.
