I just wanted to point everyone to this PRSA news release, which challenges the communication directors of both major US political parties to uphold the PRSA code of ethics for the duration of the electoral campaign.
Since this post ties into our ongoing discussion of ethics, as well as this week’s reading and discussion of propaganda, I would love to know what you think about this announcement. Is it a good idea for PRSA? Why or why not? Do you think it would be a good idea for the campaigns to openly accept the challenge? Why or why not? If you were a campaign communication director, what would you do? Do you think the Democrats and/or Republicans will take PRSA up on the challenge?
