Political Propaganda 101
"I'm the best there is at what I do," Narvey says. "And what I do isn't very nice. That said, if you would like to learn how to be an effective political propagandist online, this could be your thing. Now that I think about it, the whole experience could be quite nice."
An excerpt from the presentation synopsis for the event happening Saturday, May 14 at the University of British Columbia:
The best political blogs don’t just deal with compelling stories. They inject personal observations. They have an unconcealed political agenda. Succeeding at this means being fearless and showing your passion.
This talk will use three blog posts sprouting from personal experiences as case studies of how to put passion, bold arguments and hard-boiled agenda-pushing into your political blog in a way that forces readers to respond. The 3 blog articles include:
• Why Ground Zero Still Matters To America (Observations on 9/11 based on travel to NYC and interviews)
• The Sad Truth About The Wall With The West Bank (Analysis of one aspect of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict during a blogger’s tour of Israel)
• The Demagogue (Criticism following a visit to Vancouver of George Galloway, an famously controversial firebrand).
Learn the techniques for effective political blogging from a relentless and unrepentant propagandist.
