"Thus, rumor is a concept that lacks a particular definition in the social sciences. But most theories agree that rumor involves some kind of a statement whose veracity is not quickly or ever confirmed. In addition, some scholars have identified rumor as a subset of propaganda, the latter another notoriously difficult concept to define."

Every member of a subset is a member of the larger set, but not every member of the larger set is a member of the subset.
For example, we could have a set of "hats" and "baseball hats" would be a subset. All baseball hats are hats, but not all hats are baseball hats.
