Villarroyo, black propaganda and negative campaigning

The problem with black propaganda is that the electorate want to hear the things they want to hear and actually believe it .  Take for example the statement that went viral on the internet, titled “Why I will vote for Noynoy,” allegedly written by Winnie Monsod but which she denied ever writing it. The email says things that voters who desire good governance want to hear. I received one such email and told the sender that it is not written by Winnie Monsod. He wrote back and said “If you support Noynoy, then it doesn’t matter if  it is fake”
