Look closer. Think harder. Choose the sound argument over the clever one.

Defining Propaganda

The word propaganda really means "information that is spread for the purpose of promoting some cause".

That, on its face, isn't a bad thing. Many causes are worthy of promotion. Spreading accurate information to promote a cause is a good thing.

When I talk about propaganda, I mean false, inaccurate or distorted information that is spread for the purpose of promoting some cause.
