As multimedia is constantly growing in capability and size so is access to a wide variety of information and broadcasted to an unlimited amount of people. Propaganda of all forms is present in every aspect of this media every day, and each time a person chooses to expose themselves to the television, or radio, or internet, or even bothers to look at the billboards lined along the road they are choosing to expose themselves to propaganda. What many people do not realize, because of propaganda’s pejorative connotation, is that not all propaganda is meant to be misleading or false. In my paper I will explore the various differences in white, gray, and black propaganda, as well as what they have in common. Also, I will explore the state in which a person or even an entire society must be to be fully susceptible to the force of propaganda. Ethos, logos, and pathos, play a very big role in how all propaganda is received by its audience, and in turn affects the way in which the propaganda is executed. I have read a multitude of literature, ranging from personal blogs (those addressing propaganda or depicting it) to academic papers published by teachers, researchers, and students. As is every so often, Wikipedia has served as an excellent starting place for me. My research also includes studies on psychological warfare conducted by various psychologists, as well as researching specific examples of propaganda in many different aspects of multimedia. As a method of showing how the growing multimedia has helped to evolve propaganda, I will follow use historical as well as present day information and examples of propaganda. However, I am still looking for a way to make the entire paper focus on the present state of propaganda. If anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated!
