How does one use Propaganda in a "credible way"?
i think the word has developed a very negative stigma.
PSAs are a form of propaganda.
This immediately came to mind:

Faux News will sue, "Another study has concluded that people who only watch Fox News are less informed than all other news consumers."
Study Finds Fox News Viewers Least Informed Of All Viewers
This is government competition against private enterprise. Keeping people ignorant is Faux News Mission Statement.
Fox news definitely brought a new low to the right-wing agenda, but what I find disturbing is how the left-wing is also attempting to follow Fox's lead. That type of journalism should be banned IMO. Report the news and let the viewers decide.
What's funny though is when you hear people use the exact same verbiage lifted almost intact from that day's newscast. Whatever the media is doing to make it easier to manipulate us is working. We as Americans like to look down our nose at countries that have "state run" media, but our form of journalism isn't any better. At least the "state run" media is honest about the fact that it's "state run", where our media would rather act as if it's reporting on its own behalf.
Then there is propaganda for private gain hidden as "think tanks" and "educational nonprofits".
The Billionaire Koch Brothers
then there is propaganda against free speech wrapped up in personal vendetta and outright war against private enterprise who dare to speak up........... see above
There's nothing free about Koch & Companies "speech". They paid good money to get $100 million of government money, but we can agree that ROI of about 1 to 100 was a smart investment to privatize public wealth. The only one waging war against private enterprise is Koch and allies.

The best lies always have a kernel of truth to them.
Obama vs. Romney: 'World War III" for attack ads. But is that bad? - CSMonitor.com
The mark of an effective negative ad is believability, one that plays on a viewer’s bias or suspicions, says Kathleen Hall Jamieson, director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. “The best ads are close to what you think you already know,” she says.
The FBI took hundreds of known actions against advancement organizations during the
I'm glad we have free expression is the U.S. as long as one doesn't disagree with Faux News.
NewsDaily: Google: government requests to censor content "alarming"
"It's alarming not only because free expression is at risk, but because some of these requests come from countries you might not suspect
Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck are syndicated by Clear Channel, which though its subsidiary, Premiere Radio Networks, pays actors to call in to talk radio shows with scripted content and falsely pretend to be listeners. Pay is $40.00 per hour with a guarantee of 8 hours.
Bain Capital is a primary owner of Clear Channel, the company that Romney ran and still receives substantial income from.
I think Rush, Sean and Glenn are smart enough not to bite the hand that feeds them.
Is this called propaganda, marketing, or part of the Romney presidential campaign, sometimes it's hard to tell ?

Good article, interesting perspective. Don't think anyone with a nickname bugze would be popular.
Those damn complainers, you would have thought security would have found them and fired them. Think the final solution is to insist one's serfs sign a pledge to vote in political elections as mandated by the lords. Security should be posted at the voting booths to insure the serfs fulfill their obligations.:secruity:
Big Brothers: Thought Control at Koch | The Nation
"With Citizens United, it seems, the country is heading back to the days of court-enforced corporatocracy. Already, workers at a Koch subsidiary in Portland, Oregon, are complaining about being subjected to political and ideological propaganda. Employees at Georgia-Pacific warehouses in Portland say the company encourages them to read Charles Koch’s The Science of Success: How Market-Based Management Built the World’s Largest Private Company and to attend ideological seminars in which Koch management preaches their bosses’ “market-based management” philosophy."

Found another propaganda site Free Republic.
Free Republic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In July 2009, after Obama's eleven-year-old daughter Malia was photographed wearing a t-shirt with the peace symbol, a Free Republic thread featured racially charged comments about Obama's wife and children, using such terms as "ghetto street trash". After the thread was criticized, it was suppressed and placed under review. It was then restored to the site intact. Only after further criticism did site administrators remove it a second time. In an email response to the incident, Jim Robinson called Obama an "American-hating Marxist pig."
I've leaned to the right for over a decade. But the actions of the right's propaganda push me towards the center. w n d is one of the sites that makes me smh.
A man moved from Idaho to Kansas to challenge a Democrat in a Republican-leaning district. Leased a house, didn't even turn the utilities on. (At that point, he'd lost my vote.) He double-lost my vote when he used the words "iodine tablet" in one of his blog posts. Sounds like he took an extra shot of the kool-aid.
How did the election turn out ?
Ans surely, you can prove this, right? If you cant provide legitimate proof, well, there you go.
I provided link from post you partially quoted from. http://androidforums.com/politics-current-affairs/552909-domestic-propaganda.html#post4539506
I should learn to never doubt a Wikipedia page.
I did notice that Hannity and Limbaugh are not specifically mentioned. I listen to Rush and it is likely you do not. I am not so dumb that I cannot recognize a plant. If Premier DOES do this, Limbaugh is likely unaware.
Trust me on this, Limbaugh does not use fake callers. Some might use them, I'll give you that, but I still require proof that Limbaugh does. I call shenanigans.
I do recall such a program, however. I forget the host's name, but his schtick was to make up a story so outrageous you would not believe anyone would bite. Either that, or so offensive, you just wanted to strangle the caller. When this fake "caller" called in, this host grilled him.
If you listened long enough, it was clear that the host was using a different voice for the caller; they were one in the same. This was a silly program and once you figure out what is happening, it becomes the novelty is gone.
