from the google:

The term “propaganda” apparently first came into common use in Europe as a result of the missionary activities of the Catholic church. In 1622 Pope Gregory XV created in Rome the Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith.

I never believe anything until I've had a proper gander.

Has it always been seen as deceptive or has it ever been viewed as spreading the truth?

The first post of this thread should answer that question.

Depends upon who you ask, you know.

I thought this was going to be a thread about historiography as propaganda.

Many cite "Propaganda" by Bernays (1928) as a key modern treatise. Pub quiz fans will know he was Freud's nephew and helped sell cigarettes to women by associating them with women's lib, he held PR stunt processions where women would carry them as "freedom torches".

So, this thread isn’t about the Theatre of Hate song then?
