The 2016 Presidential Election has become the He Said, She Said exchange that trumps all others. Sure, the key ethical principles – fairness, integrity and transparency – will be upheld in the polling place. But what happens outside the voting
booth? How are voters being influenced during
the countdown to November 8th?
The candidates have dedicated teams working the 24/7 news cycle. Social streams
are filled with tweets, memes and videos. There’s no shortage of content … but what
have we learned about the candidates' values, policies and plans for the future? Are they committed to doing good and doing no
harm? Are their messages upholding key values of truthfulness, transparency, relevance,
respect and decency? Is ethics on the
campaign trail being esteemed and applied or ignored? Is it even possible today
to have an ethical discourse in politics?
Join PRSA-NY, the New York Institute of
Technology and a prestigious panel of journalists for a lively discussion about
ethics and the 2016 presidential election.
