Read the Thinking About Theory box in your textbook on pages 61-62, then watch the following clip:

Do you think highly concentrated, profit-driven media companies stand up for what’s right, even if it costs them money?

Watch an episode or two of this program to see if this analysis makes sense to you*. Can you argue that one person’s propaganda is another’s truth? Compare the Indiana University results to the results of your own study. What conclusions can you draw about the seven techniques? What conclusions can you draw about using these techniques to search for the presence of propaganda?
