Popis Influencing the public attitude towards certain topics had become one of the strongest weapons in today’s information warfare. The ability to recognize a presence of propaganda in newspaper texts is thus a treasured phenomenon, which is not directly transferable to algorithmic analysis. In the current paper, we present the first steps of the project aiming at detection and recognition of selected propaganda elements in common texts. We introduce a developed tool used for annotating designated manipulative elements in newspaper texts and providing an overview of complex text characteristics of the underlying corpus data. The presented Propaganda corpus consists of more that 5,000 newspaper articles by 4 publishing websites.
