Propaganda originally did not have the negative connotation that it has today. Propaganda was simply a public message espousing information. As it became a politicized term, it transformed into a derogatory label for biased messages, often utilizing lies and/or lies of omission.
Garth Jowett and Victoria O’Donnell define propaganda as: “Propaganda is the deliberate, systematic attempt to shape perceptions, manipulate cognitions, and direct behavior to achieve a response that furthers the desired intent of the propagandist.”
Creeple have embraced propaganda as an important tool to control sheeple thinking and combat freeple. Tax cuts steal from the poor offers a classic example of creeple propaganda utilizing both lies and lies of omission (and hypocrisy).
