Propagand and Spin

Disinformation is intentionally false or inaccurate information that is spread deliberately. It is an act of deception and false statements to convince someone of untruth. Disinformation should not be confused with misinformation, information that is unintentionally false.

Unlike traditional propaganda techniques designed to engage emotional support, disinformation is designed to manipulate the audience at the rational level by either discrediting conflicting information or supporting false conclusions. A common disinformation tactic is to mix some truth and observation with false conclusions and lies, or to reveal part of the truth while presenting it as the whole (a limited hangout).

Another technique of concealing facts, or censorship, is also used if the group can affect such control. When channels of information cannot be completely closed, they can be rendered useless by filling them with disinformation, effectively lowering their signal-to-noise ratio and discrediting the opposition by association with many easily disproved false claims.
Democrats and Republicans like to use Job data to convince and the manipulate the people. The Job lies is either a Candidate will help create jobs, tell people people with out jobs are lazy, there are plenty of jobs if one looks. No one says the world is heading into a jobless economy.
War works the same way, there is a new enemy created by the CIA and Pentagon. The war on Terror is a masterpiece. The military incursions into Afghanistan and Iraq were not done in retaliation for 9/11. The Bush administration had them clearly in mind upon taking office, and they were set in motion as early as Feb. 3, 2001. That was seven months prior to the attacks on the Trade Towers and the Pentagon, and the objectives of the wars had nothing to do with terrorism.

This is beyond dispute. The mainstream press has ignored the story, but the administration’s congenital belligerence is fully documented in book-length treatments.
The above video shows different examples of posters used by Britain and France in World War one.

Propaganda is ideas, information or rumors spread to influence people to believe or act a certain way. Propaganda posters in WWI used many techniques to influence men by appealing to their emotions of persuasion, fear, guilt, confrontation and accusation and were designed to be advertising and appealing.

These strategies included:
•Emphasizing on the means of patriotism, making men feel like they should be proud to protect their country with their own strength;
•Creating an exaggeration of hatred and fear towards the Germans;
•Making those who were not enlisting feel cowardly;
•Emphasizing the sense of masculinity and bravery in the armies;
•And glorifying army life, making the men feel as though recruiting was a great adventure all should embark on.

Because the government was very clever in the ways they presented the war, many men enlisted in the army, until later on, when the truth of war hardship was uncovered.
“Nazi”? “Communist”? “Terrorist”? “Frenchman”? Actually, it might surprise you to learn that they said none of these things. I tricked you. The president quoted above wasn’t Barack H. Obama, but Ronald W. Reagan. That’s right: The Gipper was an outspoken, if not entirely consistent, advocate of “gun control”, even before he had a personal stake in it. (And incidentally, in the photo above, taken just before he was shot, he’s surrounded by armed and highly trained gunmen whose sole responsibility is his safety. Which casts a very long shadow of doubt on the gunsters’ prime tenet that surrounding yourself with fire power necessarily makes you safer.)

This is a cause of considerable cognitive dissonance among gunsters, many of whom desperately want to paint the debate over guns as a “liberal” vs. “conservative” conflict, and to peg “gun control” as being a matter of “them librulz want to take away our guns, but I’m gonna fight off a whole army of them.” But in fact many “liberals” (specifically, about 25 percent of Democrats) own guns and many “conservatives” support “gun control” — even those measures pushed by President Obama, whom they’ve been conditioned to oppose at every turn. This despite the fact that some polls frame the issue as “gun control” versus “the right to own guns”, which is a bullshit stacked-deck question — the two are by no means mutually exclusive.

If you watch equal FOX and MS NBC then you end up with both the conservative and liberal agenda. Thus propaganda gets equaled out. The rest of the news is somewhere in between, so everybody gets their share of propaganda
