Well written propaganda trumps facts every single time.
«William Schaap gives expert testimony on government use of media for disinformation and propaganda purposes.
A must watch.
Comment #1: (Grrr! How I deplore videos!)
Comment #2: Mentioning Hitler here is entirely appropriate.
Comment #3: The principle of propaganda is quite simple - even if (of course!) a bit tricky.
Part of the video relates how long ago now, a couple of CIA operatives sat around and discussed how they could counter Cuban expeditionary assistance in a conflict in Angola. One of them came up with the idea: "Rape!"
They called in the press/PR people, and wrote - purely from their fantasy - a series of stories alleging that some Cuban personnel were raping Angolan native women; how the (fictional!) raping caused uproar amongst the Angolan tribes, then finally Angolan actions leading to the Cubans' capture and execution - with their own (i.e. Cuban) weapons. All pure fantasy, but sent off by the CIA then distributed by the MSM of the time.
In general, it's made easier if a) the lies are 'conceivable,' b) the presentation is 'impeccable' (government/'expert' sources, MSM conduit AND often amplification(!!?)), then c) repetition brings sheople-belief; subsequently d) mere mention of the keywords causes the recalling of the whole sordid story, then e) if/when the truth is finally uncovered and publicised, the sheople mostly reject that truth!
Note how simple it was/is, then think of "Saddam, WMD, Al Qaeda, 9/11!"
PS I see a possible danger; merely repeating the lying propaganda keywords could provoke the desired (sheople) response. Good thing some of us are a) smarter and b) immune to such mind-rot - eh?

PPS Q1: Do we think that repeating «Iran West nuclear bomb» over and over could be propaganda?
IF A1: 'Yes,' THEN Q2: Why does the AusBC/Barker propagandise us, we the sheople/voters?
Q3: Who allows the AusBC/Barker to corrupt our democracy?
'conceivable' lies, aka corrupting propaganda (MSM; AusBC, crime)
