Abstract

The symbolic power of the state centrally depends on managing the relationship between media and politics. At the centre of this process is the operation of propaganda. Propaganda aims to shift public perceptions of or obscure the relations of ruling. By focussing on sociological processes, myths can be dispelled about propaganda as a smoothly-oiled machine that functions through carefully calibrated ends-means deliberations. Instead, propaganda is socially shaped by informal as well as formal relations of individuals and institutions.
