Problem

Government propaganda

Other Names:
Political propaganda
Nature:

Official information services provide news for national and international consumption. Information media used for government propaganda include radio, television, newspapers and journals, art and photographs, films and theatre. Government propaganda may be in favour of nationalism, war, racism, religious attitudes or any other policy or attitude needing popular support. More commonly, propaganda simply supports the economic, political and cultural status quo.

Claim:

Because no one dares to disagree with a superior, the propaganda spun by the government ends up deceiving the leaders themselves.
