  1. This is an excellent post. Even though a piece is presented as an “opinion” many readers often accept it as fact. They shouldn’t but they often do. If in the process of presenting an opinion the piece includes misrepresentations, misinformation, false reporting of events, LIES … then it’s not really an opinion. Is it? It’s a writing or rather, it creates the appearance of a writing, meant to misinform, mislead and possibly even deceive. That’s a very sinister intention. One could even liken to receiving “unwise counsel”.

      Yes, I agree with you — it would then be considered propaganda and the question is if propaganda has a place in newspapers that are supposed to inform.

      • WE ALL KNOW that propaganda has no place in objective and truthful reporting. We also KNOW it’s a common practice for journalism to be used to promote propaganda. Thanks for allowing my comments.
