Countering Misinformation While Avoiding the Pitfalls of Myth Busting
We’re all faced with misleading, inaccurate, and untruthful statements about our issues, and we certainly can’t allow misinformation to go unchallenged. But the best way to counter false information is to tell our own affirmative story in a way that overcomes the other side’s falsehoods. By contrast, we should avoid myth busting, or restating the false argument and then explaining why it’s wrong.
Join our webinar to learn more about how to counter wrong information without strengthening its place in audiences’ minds. We’ll include tips and ideas about how to tell an affirmative story in the face of misinformation and lies, and provide some concrete examples of what this can look like.
This presentation is a special kickoff to a series of webinars celebrating The Opportunity Agenda’s 10th Anniversary.
“Countering Misinformation While Avoiding the Pitfalls of Myth Busting” took place on May 18, 2016, at 2 to 3 p.m. ET.
