During one of the Journalism courses I took early on, I remember the instructor giving a definition/ example of propaganda that I have always remembered.
It was this:
"Suppose you want to prove that all dogs bite. You will not lie, you will simply only report about biting dogs". That is to the complete omission of the dogs who are gentle, and do not bite, of course.
