In this case, the propaganda technique may merely be an attempt to tack "bad science" as a negative buzzword onto whatever is being attacked. It may be effective because counter-arguments against these claims are long, complex and difficult to understand.
Unfortunately, some claims of bad or junk science really are legimate, and sometimes these are mixed with accusations that are completely bogus.
