Welcome to The Discourse!

War is declared! TESTCO invades Stainwagon in a bold move to secure a new home for themselves and their allies. Today's guest military analyst, Jin'taan, the Strategos of Provibloc, provides a tactical overview of the conflict.

A warm welcome, too, to my esteemed colleague Cyrillian Voth- good to be working with you again, sir!

Nicely done. Your report was well presented, far better than the usual Gutter Press postings we get here.

For those who didn't watch this engaging bit of self-aggrandizement, the long and short of it is that while PanFam holds the North, Test and Goons are fighting over a Southern backwater.

Also in the News, Pandemic Horde are engaging in an urban renewal project within Caldari HiSec. More on this as it develops, stay tuned!

TESCO is attacking Stainwagon. We are simply assisting our allies. It's telling that people want to make this about us, though.

I suppose we were behind Heth, too, right?

Thank you for the praise, naturally. Of course, I must ask: bit of self-aggrandizement, Mr. Mokk? Please, do elaborate?

And, uh, Arrendis; make this about you? Huh? I must've missed that part of the script...?

Considering that we had to go in to fix Caldari as well as Pure Blind and Fade, I wouldn't be surprised.

Positive self-propaganda.

It's ok, everyone does it (Join HORDE). As long as we're all doing it well, it's a good thing.

It was a response to Mokk's characterization of TESCO's invasion of Stainwagon space.

Ah! Apologies. I suppose I was already inclined to be baffled, on account of Mokk's other statements.

So, I'm clearly missing something. Is branding now propaganda? Or is this propaganda because, as the ARC Studio staff is dominated by Caldari-associated personnel, the product is oriented towards a State viewership? What would, in your eyes, elevate a third-party media report on a war we have no stake in above the base level of propagandizing?

(on a technical side, I should note that we do tag these as 'propaganda' on a particular Galnet portal used by Capsuleers, but that's simply because the tag draws eyes and so increases viewership.)

It's propaganda because poor Sinjin's been infected by Teh Greedy Gobbins and so everything is either 'spin' or 'propaganda'.

He probably believes highsec trading citadels around Jita each make the billions a day Gobbins insists they do.
