Hi, I'm a Tea-Partier

A Tea Party Patriot tries to explain how our freedoms are in jeopardy.
Oscar's insight:

The brown character that represents the tea-partier has a fallacy on his argument. He makes use of "Begging the question", using arguments to justify other arguments. 

The brown character also makes "hasty generalizations" by jumping to conclusions without providing evidence.

The video also uses "Comparison-Contrast" to differentiate the characters. This makes the brown character look bad.

Reagan-Mondale debate: the age issue

Reagan makes a witty response to a question about his age.
Oscar's insight:

In this debate, Ronald Reagan makes use of humor, which is a form of Pathos. Regardless of how good the oponent's argument might have been, the laughter makes people feel attracted to Reagan.

Reagan also makes use of "Comparison-Contrast" by saying, "I will not take advantage of my oponent's youth and inexperience." He turns the argument against his oponent by comparing himself and stating that he is more experienced.

Reagan's argument also has a fallacy. It distracts the audience by using humor, making them forget about the argument. (the red herring)

Chrysler Eminem Super Bowl Commercial - Imported From Detroit

Oscar's insight:

The ad, "Imported from Detroit" makes use of various persuasive appeals, and rethorical strategies. 

For instance, the ad makes use of Ethos to wake up our values, character, and beliefs. Personally, after watching the ad I felt that I had a responsability with the hard-working people from Detroit. I also felt more empathetic to those who struggled during the economic crisis.

The ad also uses "classification and division" because it shows how the Chrysler 200 is not just a common car;  it represents the rebirth of the American car industry.

The ad uses narration; it tells a story that is not just about the car, but also about Detroit and the American people.

Oscar's insight:

The ad uses, "Classification and Division" to help the reader how can the product be used. 

It also uses an "analogy" to help the reader understand that healthy food can be as chead and available as junk food.

Keller Willians New York City

Keller Willians New York City | Persuasion Project Eng 102 | Scoop.it
Oscar's insight:

This ad uses "Example-Illustration" because it shows how any person who uses their formula can become successful and reach new heights.

 

On the other side this ad "stacks the evidence" because it does not offer any alternative. It does not show another company, which may have a better formula, and only focus on their message.
