Propaganda FACT # 2

The spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person

Which car is faster…red or white?


Propaganda FACT # 3

Ideas, facts, or allegations spread deliberately to further one's cause or to damage an opposing cause


Propaganda FACT # 4

Propaganda designers have been putting messages into television commercials, news programs, magazine ads, and other things we read and see for years.Their purpose is to persuade us to believe in something or to do something that we would not normally believe or do. These messages have been designed to benefit someone, and that someone may not be you!


Propaganda FACT # 5

It's not as easy as you might think to spot hidden messages. Propaganda designers don't put one message into a piece of propaganda - they put lots of messages into each piece! The more you know about propaganda techniques and how they work, the less likely it is that someone will sneak something by you!


Propaganda FACT # 6

Nothing says that you can't appreciate a good piece of propaganda, and still not agree with the messages hidden within it.But, you don't want to be conned into believing something that is not true, simply because you've been the target of an effective propaganda campaign. That's why it's important to understand what propaganda is and how it works. 


Propaganda FACT # 7

Is everything we see and hear propaganda? No, it is not. The word propaganda refers to any technique that attempts to influence the opinions, emotions, attitudes, or behavior of a group in order to benefit the sponsor. But the techniques of propaganda are used every day, in the military, in the media, in advertising, in politics, and in all sorts of human relationships.


Propaganda FACT # 8

  • Originally, propaganda meant an arm of the Roman Catholic church responsible for 'de propaganda fidei,' propagation of the faith. It acquired negative connotations in the 20th century when totalitarian regimes (principally the Nazi Germany) used every means to distort facts and spread total falsehoods.
