What Is Reputation? • Image: – Exists in the minds of publics – Picture, impression, appearance: the way you are seen – Implies lack of fit with reality – A large part of communication people’s role

What Is Reputation? • Identity: – For ethical organisations implies fit with reality – Coordinates disparate elements truthfully – Exists as a goal in the minds of organisation – Consists of a culture, and shared symbols which reflect, anchor and build that culture • Name, logo, “personality”

Who needs to consider reputation? • • • • • • Companies Non-profits organisations Political parties Political leaders Countries Anyone who cares about what other people think

Elaboration Likelihood Model

Propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state. Noam Chomsky

PROPAGANDA

The Big Lie This theory states that: • No matter how big the lie, people will believe it if you repeat it enough! • Everyone tells small lies • Very few have the guts to tell huge lies • Because a big lie is so unlikely, people will come to accept it

What is Propaganda?

What is Propaganda? • The most general definition of propaganda is: any attempt to persuade anyone of any belief. Hummell and Huntress, (1949) • Propaganda is an expression of opinion or action by individuals or groups deliberately designed to influence the opinions and actions of other individuals or groups with reference to a predetermined end. The Institute For Propaganda Analysis, (1938)

Recent Definition Propaganda is the deliberate, systematic attempt to shape perceptions, manipulate cognitions, and direct behaviour to achieve a response that furthers the desired intent of the propagandist. ! Jowett & O'Donnel. (2006) 

The Invasion of Iraq

The Invasion of Iraq B IG T A F S R A I L • The alleged linkage of Saddam Hussein with Osama bin Laden, al Qaeda and weapons of mass destruction • Saddam Hussein's development of nuclear weapons • America would be safer

Propaganda Appeals Name-calling! • Giving an idea a bad or emotive label • Using “loaded” terms • Diverting attention from the message to the messenger • Discrediting the messenger with information totally unrelated to the issue ! Examples: terrorist, flip flopper, fake, bully, liar

Characteristics of Propaganda Glittering generalities! • … elicit strong emotional responses through the use of vague and hollow, though perceptually meaningful, words and phrases • A common element of glittering generalities are intangible nouns that embody ideals, such as: • dignity • freedom • patriotism

Characteristics of Propaganda Transfer! • A process of association; the good of one thing rubs off onto something else – Appropriation of symbolic objects, e.g. flags, national anthem – Sponsorship; appropriation of athlete’s qualities – Celebrity endorsement: transfer of celebrity’s qualities

Characteristics of Propaganda Testimonial! • Actual endorsement as opposed to transfer device. – Commonly used in advertising – Usually involves athletes or celebrities encouraging people to buy

Characteristics of Propaganda Calling upon the support of “plain folks”! • Trying to show that a person or product is good for “ordinary” people, because a person is “just like you” and understands you • Politicians’ “middle New Zealand” • Average Joe • … not what Kiwis do • The American people

Characteristics of Propaganda Card Stacking! • Manipulates an audience’s perception of an issue by emphasising one side and repressing another • Slanted selection of material for presentation • Movie ads cite only ‘good’ review, out of context

Characteristics of Propaganda The Band Wagon! • Convincing us to accept someone or something because of its popularity – Everybody is doing it • “the people’s choice” • “Nobody doesn’t like Sara Lee” • “the Pepsi generation”

Characteristics of Propaganda Fear appeals/threats! • Plays on deep-seated fears • Warns the audience that disaster will result if they do not follow a particular course of action – insurance companies ! What about Quit smoking campaigns???
