Propaganda- a concerted set of messages aimed at influencing the opinions or behaviors of large numbers of people. As opposed to impartially
providing information, propaganda in its most basic sense presents information in order to influence its audience. Propaganda often presents facts selectively (thus lying
by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or gives loaded messages in order to produce an emotional rather than rational response to the information presented. The desired result is a change of the cognitive
narrative of the subject in the target audience to further a political agenda.
