Address the following in your post:
- Using evidence from the Frontline video, and according to the principles of the articles from Module 2 readings, what communication mistakes were made in the early COVID-19 communications in the United States? Why do you think they were made?
- Using evidence from the Frontline video, and according to the principles of the articles from Module 2 readings, what communication strategies might have been employed in the U.S. to better inform and motivate the American people?
- According to the principles of the articles from Module 2 readings, how have you seen mixed messages from emergency managers, public officials, or others, that caused confusion or lack of response from audiences?
- When you consider the range of different known disaster possibilities, what stands out to you as universal principles for disaster communications?
- What other questions do you have about the readings and/or the module?
