User: Getting information from a number of different sources is a good way to avoid bad propaganda.

Weegy: false.Propaganda can consist of untruths and carefully selected facts. (For example, on one day during the Battle of Britain the BBC news reported that over thirty German aircraft had been shot down for the loss of only five British planes. [ The figure of five British planes was accurate, but the figure of 30 German aircraft was exaggerated.) Propaganda is best considered as "what they want you to hear". At best it is selective, at worst it is untrue. Any respectable historian will go to original sources to find out as many facts as possible, being careful to distinguish between fact and opinion. (Another example: "Senator Smith said President Jones is ruining the economy" would be an opinion, but "when Jones was President, 10,000 factories closed" would be fact. If another fact was that unemployment fell by 5 million while Jones was president, you might decide that he did not ruin the economy at all.) Read more: ]
