7. It detracts from the truth of the message because it sounds like hyperbole.

It's an exaggeration to use the word "execute" when executions did not literally happen. This is not the literal definition of "execute". I'm not a fan of stretching the truth or of misusing words. It makes me suspicious of the whole thing.

Maybe it reaches a certain type of audience, but it's a big fail for me. Propaganda is just not my style. I'm thinking, "what do you take me (the reader) for?" It takes away from the believability.
