Separating fact from fiction in today's media-fueled culture has never been more difficult. What counts as evidence? What's the secret to busting a myth? Media experts will explore a range of strategies -- including polling, data collection, humour, monitoring, and campaigns -- that are used successfully, or not-so-successfully, to talk about immigrants and immigration. This session will examine good practice in influencing public opinion, countering myths and misinformation, and making your story stick.
