What is propaganda?

What is "propaganda"? Is it bad, good, or neutral? Who does it? Is it what "the other guy" does but you don't? Is something "propaganda" because of its content, delivery, audience, intent, effect, all the above or none of the above?

I'm interested in your thoughts. Next week I'll post one - possibly two - proposed revisions to the definition of propaganda to continue this discussion.
