Propaganda Case Study Critique Sheet

This from Aubrey Robinson: I just read a report from the National Abortion Federation that fits really
well with the Planned Parenthood propaganda presentation our class saw on
Monday. It found a dramatic increase in hate speech, threats, and violence
directly correlating to the release of the videos. I just thought it might
be nice to pass on to the class to show how a propaganda campaign can still
be effective and successful even when the claims are disproven. Here is a
