Q:

What are some examples of card-stacking propaganda?

A:

Quick Answer

Ads in which one political candidate dramatically misrepresents an opponent's policies or where a company displays a polished image of its product next to a less-flattering image of a competitor's product count as card-stacking propaganda.

Full Answer

Card-stacking propaganda deliberately misrepresents something to manipulate the audience. Rather than relying solely on facts, card-stacking propaganda will exaggerate or downplay something to suit a specific goal; for example, an advertisements for an unhealthy potato chip brand may emphasize the fact the chips are made out of organic potatoes in hopes that consumers focus on that and ignore the chips' salt, fat and calorie content.
