So we have a working definition of propaganda.

Propaganda is a form of communication that is aimed at influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position by presenting only one side of an argument.

Propaganda often presents facts selectively (thus possibly lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or uses loaded messages to produce an emotional rather than rational response to the information presented.
So, again, to make this a set of workable factors, in order to be propaganda:

1. Must be a form of communication
2. aimed at influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause/position
3. by presenting only one side of an argument,
4. presenting facts selectively, and/or
5. using loaded messages to produce an emotional rather than rational response to presented information.

There it is. That's the official Direckshun/mcchiefsfan conditions for propaganda.

Tell me, do these following screencaps, taken from Drudge right now, seem to present only one side of the argument, use dubious sources to make their one-sided argument?











And tell me, do these selected photos for several of the headlines suggest an emotional response?







The Drudge Report is Republican propaganda.

Screw your head back on.
