Transcript of 7 Types of Propaganda

What is Propaganda?
What does this mean to you?
The spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person.
Why does propaganda exist?

For example:

Only describes the good effects of the drug.

For example:
A respected person such as a celebrity or an "everyman" that the information consumer can relate to is used to endorse a product, person, or service.

Everyone is doing it!
For example:

For example:
Stars: they're just like us!

For example:
