Propaganda…or Advertising?

November 3, 2009

During World War 2 enemies and allies used propoganda to spite their opposition and to furhter increase the moral and some sort of revenue. The use of propoganda was highly important to spread lies and hate amongst the population.

The principals of propoganda are to trick the public into thinking a certain way and to act a certain way. The line between fake photo journalism, staging photos, dishonest advertising and propoganda is blurred because the goals and methods are the same, only slightly less severe in todays world. The fact that lies and mistruths are being deliberately spread for a specific purpose, let it be during a war, or on a front page shows that the intent of those above us aren’t as trust worthy as once thought.
