Setting the Record Straight on Propaganda

Princeton University's lexical database defines "propaganda" as "information that is spread for the purpose of promoting some cause" (think of "propagate"). The term may be used to occasionally point out information that may be true, but whose presentation is motivated by an agenda.

The other day my friend, whose preferred candidate is Ron Paul, sent me an email entitled "Ron Paul Propaganda". In it were a series of links to videos and websites in support of Ron Paul. It was merely descriptive, but it helps to keep things in perspective.
