Propaganda is any kind of widespread broadcasting of information that seeks to persuade its audience to predetermined positions, via any of several manipulative techniques (such as emotional cues or selective omission (e.g. interpretive framing), rather than to honestly and objectively document a process of truth-discovery via honest examination of evidence.

The word is also sometimes extended to include benevolent and accurate uses of these techniques, in which they are used towards convincing people to believe or understand the truth to which the best available evidence actually points, typically as a counter to malevolent propaganda or biases inherent in human cognition or culture.
