1. Assume you are the director of your college or university’s athletic department. A major story hits the news claiming that several of your athletes received inappropriate assistance writing term papers. Supposing the story is untrue (in other words, that this is nothing but a rumor), how would you handle this negative publicity? 2. Faced with the rumor about Corona beer being contaminated with urine (see the discussion earlier in the chapter), what course of action would you have taken if the Heineken distributor in Reno had not been identified as starting the rumor? In other words, if the source of the rumor were unknown, what steps would you have taken?
