The Museum of Public Relations, in partnership with the Institute for Public Relations, cordially invite you to a timely conversation on the implications of "truth decay" for the practice of public relations. "Truth decay" is a term coined by the authors of a new RAND study to refer to the diminishing role of facts and analysis in public life. The RAND Corporation’s new study Truth Decay: An Initial Exploration of the Diminishing Role of Facts and Analysis in American Public Life describes a set of trends—disagreements over objective facts, the blurring of opinion and facts, declining trust in formerly respected information sources, erosion of civil discourse, political paralysis, and alienation from political and civic institutions—that pose an important challenge to the field of public relations and, more broadly, to democracy itself. A panel of distinguished PR practitioners and scholars will review the implications of this timely study.
This event will be live-streamed on the Museum of PR's Facebook page, facebook.com/prmuseum.
5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Truth Decay Panel
