Pravda, translated as "Truth" in Russian was the newspaper historically controlled, state-owned and published by the Communist USSR Government as a propaganda machine to spread pro-communist views.

Since the fall of the USSR, the term in now commonly used on media(s) that tend to be too biased towards a political party/agenda, and are at times so skilled in propagation that people are convinced that they are "balanced and fair" editorials/news.

Alternatively, this term may also refer to media(s) state-owned by the government/ruling party in certain countries, allowing little chance for the opposition to express their views as they are usually censored as such.
