Anne Barnhill (U Penn): (When) is public health messaging manipulative?

Some public heath messaging goes beyond providing health information in a neutral way, but rather is graphic, is meant to shock us, is meant to be visually arresting, or is meant to cause negative emotions like fear or disgust.  This public health messaging has been called manipulative.  In this talk, I dig into the charge of manipulativeness, try to figure out what it means, and offer some responses to it.
