- Propaganda is a term that means writing that is one-sided, biased, the spreading of ideas and information, rumors, and are often misleading. Propaganda could also be considered an opinion.
- Sometimes, propaganda is used to “sell” people on a viewpoint by different articles such as newspapers, magazines, books, media, art, music, etc. and the propaganda that is used in those specific articles would try to lead the reader to that one side that the author is trying to get you to join. The hope for the author would be that that one reader would tell his or her friends about it and try to get their certain friends on “board” so that the author could spread his or her propaganda around the world. The goal in the end for the author who is trying to spread the propaganda would be that every person in the whole country, or even the whole world, would join his or her group (which would be highly unlikely). Media would probably be the biggest propaganda “seller” above all because mostly all people use media every single day. Whether you watch TV, use an iPod, have a phone, use a laptop, etc. you would be using media. Music and art would be another big propaganda “seller” because in music and art, you can express your feelings.
