ControVersus gets a shoutout in Truth Decay

ControVersus is briefly referenced in the RAND Corporation's recent report Truth Decay: An Initial Exploration of the Diminishing Role of Facts and Analysis of American Public Life by Jennifer Kavanagh and Michael D. Rich. A card game developed during a workshop of the Pardee RAND Graduate School is referenced as a potential solution for improving public discourse. This is that card game!
