What is propaganda?
Propaganda in the Media
Glittering generalities use simple, clever slogans that appeal to peoples’ emotions. These general statements are easy to remember but hard to verify because they offer no facts.
Propaganda is media that uses carefully
crafted messages to manipulate people’s
actions and beliefs. It has one purpose, and one purpose only: to persuade you.
The term “propaganda” first came into common use in Europe as a result of the missionary activities of the Catholic church. In 1622 Pope Gregory XV created in Rome the Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith.
In the early uses of the word, propaganda was used in honorable mentions and for good, but modern times has deemed it more selfish and deceitful.

The transfer technique uses your feelings about one thing to get
you to feel the same way about something else. Transfer can use
a positive image to persuade you to like something or a negative
image to persuade you to dislike something.
The plain folks technique is designed to send the message that a product or person is “just like you.”
Card stacking uses facts and figures to show one side as positive and the other side as negative.
