In addition, some scholars have identified rumor as a subset of propaganda.

  1. Rumors

    Rumors is a farcical play by Neil Simon. Several affluent couples gather in the posh suburban residence of a couple for a dinner party celebrating their hosts' tenth anniversary. However, they discover there are no servants, the hostess is missing, and the host - the deputy mayor of New York City - has shot himself through the earlobe. Comic complications arise when, given everyone's upper class status, they decide they need to do everything possible to conceal the evening's events from the local police and the media.
