aka Psy Op
Psychological operations (PSYOP) or, officially since 2010, Military Information Support Operations (MISO) are planned operations to convey selected information and indicators to audiences to influence their emotions, motives, objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of governments, organizations, groups, and individuals. The purpose of United States psychological operations is to induce or reinforce behavior favorable to US objectives... PSYOP involves the careful creation and dissemination of a product message. There are three types of Propaganda that are used to create these messages. They include White propaganda which is used in overt operations and Gray and Black propaganda which are used in covert PSYOP. White, Gray, and Black don't refer to the propaganda's content but rather the methods used to carry out the operation. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_Operations_(United_States)
