Public relations is more like damage control and propaganda is an offensive maneuver used to sway public opinion.

To me PR is from a private company trying to promote their business or whatever they are trying to accomplish. This would be within the law
Propaganda is the government or their associated agency forcing their opinion out to the public
Very different

PR should be accentuating the good, and downplaying the bad, while acknowledging both.
Propaganda is when one or the other is left out or misrepresented entirely.
