2017 has seen the rise of accusations of deliberate, fabricated news – a type of yellow journalism or propaganda called “fake news.” Whether those allegations are true or not, PR practitioners must remember their ethical center around best practices to adhere to when they are asked to represent their clients or brands amid these conversations.

Join us on Wednesday, September 13, 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m., as Dr. Julie O’Neil from TCU, Dr. Mark Tremayne from UTA, and Dr. Kay Colley from Texas Wesleyan University discuss the challenges professional communicators face in the new fake news climate.
