Propaganda

Propaganda is biased information of a misleading nature used to promote a specific point of view. In WWI, propaganda was used to promote hate against Jews, and could be found commonly in media and such. This eventually got so bad that some schools wouldn't allow Jew students, laws were made against Jews, and they were being taken away to concentration camps. There are many ways propaganda is used in media. The first is demonization, which is used to portray the group in question as purely evil, and it attempts to remove any question about who he public should hate. The next is emotional appeals, which plays on people's emotions to pursuading them a specific direction by making them sad, happy, or guilty. Another is name calling, which is basically exactly what it sounds like, calling the enemy negative names and giving stereotypical labels. Half truths or lies is another way or propaganda what twists the truth or blatantly lies to shine negative light on the enemy. Cathy slogans is one of the most commonly used forms of propaganda mainly because it sticks and it's harder to forget.
