Mary Hunt Posted over 2 years ago Should we teach our kids about how advertisement (public relationships, marketing) works? Considering how much money was dumped into political ads this year and how many people changed their minds based on a soundbite, we must teach kids and adults how PR and marketing works. Once they can see the hand behind the message they'll not be so easily swayed. Frontline did a story called Big Sky Big Money and demonstrated how last minute drops of political lies can change the outcome of an election because it gives the other side no time to respond. For an educated person, last minute fliers or ads will not change their minds, but for those without critical thinking skills it can drastically affect the outcome of the election. I personally don't like the idea that those dumb enough to fall for such tactics are choosing our leaders.
