AJ Garrigus February 19, 2008 English 101, Shabbat Response Essay to “Propaganda Techniques in Today’s America” After reading Ann McClintock’s article on the multiple forms of propaganda used in advertising, I was amused. She writes to explain how advertising is evil through its subliminal usage. But when I look past her opinion on the matter, I found her report to be what should be in a college text book for advertising. However, despite this, she uses propaganda in her own writing to make it more persuasive. McClintock uses “grab words” in her opening paragraph when expressing how advertising is evil and corruptive. She first mentions how everyone, including children, is being “seduced” This would instew 1 adults, especially parents, right off because they fear something ill for their children. McClintock goes on to say we’re being “brainwashed” and “victimized”. This in itself is propaganda.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
