Americans, adults and children alike , are being seduced. They are being brainwashed. And few of them protest. Why? Because the seducers and the brainwashers are advertisers they willingly invite into their homes. They are victims, seemingly content-even eager-to be victimized. They read advertisers'... show more Americans, adults and children alike , are being seduced. They are being brainwashed. And few of them protest. Why? Because the seducers and the brainwashers are advertisers they willingly invite into their homes. They are victims, seemingly content-even eager-to be victimized. They read advertisers' propaganda messages in newspapers and magazines;they watch their alluring images on television. They absorb their messages and images into their subconscious. They all do it-even those who claim to see through advertisers' tricks and therefore feel immune to advertising's charm.Advertisers lean heavily on propaganda to sell products, whether the "products" are a brand of toothpaste, a candidate for office, or a particular political viewpoint.
Propaganda is a systematic effort to influence people's opinions, to win them over to a certain view or side. Propaganda is not necessarily concerned with what is true or false, good or bad. Propagandists simply want people to believe the messages being sent. Often, propagandists will use outright lies or more subtle deceptions to sway people's opinions. In a propaganda war, any tactic is considered fair.
Name calling is a propaganda tactic in which negatively charged names are hurled against the opposing side or competitor. By using such names, propagandists try to arouse feelings of mistrust, fear, and hate in their audiences. For example, a political advertisement may label an opposing candidate a "loser,""fence-sitter," or "warmonger."

Update 5: 第三題是B,為什麼一和二是A??
可以幫我解釋一下嗎?
Update 6: 我也不知道,我把A翻譯成立用手段讓人們去形成意見和議論。
而B翻譯成立用公平的手段去贏得觀眾站在他們那一邊。
而選擇B是不是因為在文章中談到政治那一段有說到,廣告商做廣告不管他們所說的是真...
,只要讓觀眾覺得他們是正確的就好
是這樣所以選B嗎?
還是我B選巷翻譯錯了??
Update 7: 嗯嗯,謝謝你唷!
