Propaganda is a form of communication that is aimed at influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position. As opposed to
impartially providing information, propaganda in its most basic sense, presents information primarily to influence an audience.
By the basic definition a good 95% of the threads on ATS are "propaganda".....Since they attempt to sway the opinion of the ATS community....
AGAIN.....Why does anyone have a problem with it after watching how BP has handled this disaster? BILLIONS and BILLIONS of dollars go into technology
every year to drill DEEPER and DEEPER, whilst NO money goes into prevention methods, and that's why were stuck with crappy "booms" and TOXIC
How anyone can still think BP cares more about the environment than profit margins is BEYOND me....And THAT is exactly what this banner is pointed
So if you don't like the Banner, please provide me with some proof that
shows BP cares more about the Earth than making a buck.....
Edit to add: DOES anyone see quotes? It's not meant to be a quote, it's expressive what A MAJORITY of ATS believes to be BP's viewpoints....MONEY
over Environmental Concerns.
