Hmm…What Did Those Ads Say? Reducing the Continued Influence Effect in Political Comparison Advertisements

Comparative advertisements provide contradictory information and corrections. The impact this has on consumer’s decisions is unknown because it is difficult to know what will be recalled. The continued influence effect (CIE) occurs when original information prevails in memory although a correction is acknowledged. This paper aims to reduce the CIE.
