The reporter further states that all social media users should be required to provide a credit card account in order to sign up, to insure that real names are used. Note that comments on social media – and media online forums too – are a form of propaganda. In some cases, the comments being posted are part of a coordinated propaganda campaign. Propaganda does not merely emanate from those who own the printing presses and broadcast licenses – propaganda can be produced and distributed by everyone today using social media and online comments too.
