Ryan Garcia blatantly states his critical opinion about the placing of Brett Kavanaugh into the supreme court judge position. He develops his opinion by using irreverent diction and masterfully structuring his essay to persuade his audience to feel the same. The purpose of his accusatory writing is to implicate the wrong-doing of Kavanaugh and why the Senate "should vote to keep him off the Supreme Court." Although the author does not directly address the audience as a whole, the reader can relate with Garcia on many of his opinions, which will lead the reader to establish a companionable relationship with the author.
I am shocked to see the some women and really anyone actually voted for Kavanaugh to be on the bench. Not only does it seem like a slap in the face to women who have been sexually assaulted and want to come forward about their assault, but why would anyone want someone as a judge of decisions when they can't even be honest abut their own? I'm honestly astonished.
Greg Gutfeld of Fox News suggests the true embarrassment Michael Avenatti has brought on lawyers through his participation in the Stormy Daniels versus Donald Trump trials. Gutfeld masterfully does this by giving hypothetical questions and answering himself with responses supported by known evidence. Gutfeld’s apparent purpose was to bash Michael Avenatti and make him the laughing stock of current news due to his less than adequate job representing Stormy Daniels. Gutfeld’s obvious audience would be Trump supporting people and he connects to this audience by interjecting humorous phrases to shed light on an embarrassing defeat for democrats.
This article from Fox News seems more opinion based than news related. While the points it makes on the lawyer are valid, it goes off on a tangent when talking about the Kavanaugh debacle.
Jelani Cobb of the New Yorker informs the readers of his article about the recent, "idiotic" interview between Donald Trump and Kanye West. Cobb successfully exposes Trump, West, and their "contrarian" discussions through his aggressive tone and intimidating diction. The liberal reporter's obvious purpose was to shed light on the "idiocy" and ignorance of the lifestyle that Trump's presidency has brought on to our nation and how "selfless service" is no longer a virtue of today. The clearly intended audience of Cobb are non-supporters of Trump which makes the article much more successful due to it's sardonic and attacking phrases towards Trump and West.
This is a very well written article, proving their negative outlook on Kanye's and Trump's relationship. I completely agree with this view, and would like to look into it deeper.
Sally Kohn, a political CNN commentator, bluntly states her idea that the Republican party will soon fall into the "political darkness" that they deserve if people like Kavanaugh continue to disrespect women. With Kohn's main focus on appealing to these mistreated woman and her emphasis on the Republicans wrongdoings, she is able to create this negative outlook on both the party and Kavanaugh himself. Kohn's bashing article is reaching out to women and all supporters of Kavanaugh hoping for a change in our society's views. This call to arms will push women to gain more respect for themselves and teach everyone that "sexual assault of any kind...is not okay."
I agree with Sally's point of view. If we allow people to do things morally wrong and against the law into the office then it is just setting an example and telling citizens its okay which it is not.
Publisher, Charles M. Blow, sought an opportunity to call out Donald Trump after his recent meeting with Kanye West through Blow's editorial, "Trump's Callous Use of Kanye"; this media post opened Blow's opinion to everyone about Trump's hypocrisy on the African American stance with the "war on drugs," and exploits Trump's real stance on the topic opposed to the "reformed" one Trump claimed during this meeting in which Blow savagely manipulates. The publisher's argument was validated through contradicting quotes spoken by Trump, diction, and factual statistics. Blow made it blatantly clear Trump has stood on diverse sides depending on his occasion. Citizens question their trust and belief in their president to their association with the power he holds.
Journalist Timothy Carney of The Washington Examiner divulges his theory on why Kanye West is such a strong advocate and campaigner of President Donald Trump, a rare political choice amongst celebrities and people of color. Carney analyzed the conversation between the rapper and the president, quoted an excerpt from a diatribe about Trump supporters called "Father Fuhrer" that highlights the connection between fatherless Trump supporters, and determined where the majority of Trump's presidential support comes from, nontraditional homes, to illuminate the reasoning behind Kanye's backing of the president. The journalist's purpose was to call attention to the fact that Kayne views Trump as the father figure he lacked due to the stifling air of masculinity put off by President Trump. The intended audience is those who have formed their own opinions about Kanye's reasoning and is meant to convince them to look at the situation from a more plausible angle.
The argument presented a logical thinking; however, when Williamson said "father-fueher" relating to Kanyes relationship to Trump with Hitler and the Nazis was too far and too much interpretation.
Eli Steele in is article ",Elizabeth Warren struck a deal with the devil in claiming Native American ancestry for advancement," reveals the trickery involved with Elizabeth Warren's claim to be a full-blooded Native American. Steele uses his past experiences and facts to undermine Warren's character. Steele ,being born from African American and Jewish parents, knows what the process is and what opportunities arise from being a minority in the United States. Steele brings up Warren's recent test results of being .09 percent Native American to show that she claimed to be a minority for advancement, when she is not a minority at all. Steele "left the race boxes blank" because he didn't want to be defined by race, while Warren claimed to be Native American for personal gain. Steele purposely wants to shine a negative light on Warren and wants the public to know that she is a fraud.
This article was very good organized and brought up some issues that are overshadowed but are still very important.
well not good stupid autocorrect
Given that Steele has a valid background as a minority, he produces an unbiased argument towards the obviously white American claiming she is Native American. He uses anecdotes to try and relate to her, which is almost impossible because of their quite diverse experiences. Although her claim of being Native American has been very controversial, she is a great example of the monstrosity of white supremacists and their power.
I thought this article was very thought provoking and left people thinking about how this situation is used throughout the country and we will never move on. The personal stories really helped by using comparison between himself and Warren and how their differences influence their futures.
Michelle Cottle in her editorial news article, "Hilary Clinton's Master Class in Distraction" notifies how she thinks that democrats need to be focused on the midterms. She cleverly proves her point to the receiving audience by wielding her condescending diction choice and using ethos to her advantage by backing up all of her claims with hard evidence. The purpose of this condemning writing is to bring to people's attentions the past of Mrs. Clinton and how she handled it while Cottle is also persuading America to "be focused on the midterms." While the author did often make arrogant, disapproving comments without any evidence behind them, she normally stays on track of her writing by pairing her opinions with hard facts to help the public interpret what she was implying.
Jon Webb of the Evansville Courier & Press publishes his thoughts and digs deep in the idea that many students are sinking in student debt for the rest of their lives and no one is even giving this problem the time of day to try and resolve. The author displays his opinions by revealing experiences of real life struggling people and specific evidence to further prove the unneeded student debt of humans. The obvious purpose of this editorial is to shine a light on the ongoing issue that student debt keeps getting worse and politicians need to step up and help the hopeless citizens who will forever carry this debt around. Webb is reaching out to the public to find a voice and make a change to solve the problem that is "crushing this country."
I never realized how drastic the student loan issue is.This article makes me consider not going to college.
Talks about the unfortunate fact that going to college in America not on scholarship pretty much guarantees you tons of debt. Makes sure that if you decide to go to college you're doing it for the right reasons and that you are aware that you will most likely come out of college with thousands of dollars of debt
In Olivia Extrum's at first disheartening article published by Mother Jones regarding the lasting non-unanimous judicial laws of Louisiana and how it directly affected Glenn Davis, an innocent black man falsely accused of killing a drug dealer in a drive-by, she explores the brutal resistance of the Jim Crow era mindsets and laws that are still functioning whether we realize it or not.
Through use of thoroughly explained legal jargon, consistent concrete evidence via citations, statistics and quotes from largely recognized figures, allusions to the countries past errors in the law, and harsh but not untrue references to the manipulation of the court to favor whites, Extrum creates an article that can reach countless types of people and ultimately aims to unify the thinking of both liberal and conservative parties to right the wrongs of the current law and uphold our constitution.
Clay's shocking interpretation of Kanye and Trump's meeting was to bash the two and prove the two to be arrogant and inconsiderate. He uses Kanye's bizarre interpretation of mental health against him, making him seem mentally ill himself, using extremely negative diction. Clay wants the reader to agree with his claim of Kanye and Trump to be irrelevant. The article was aimed at democratic conservatives, stating many argumentative statements supporting the beliefs of these two popular parties.
In Candace Owens’ editorial titled “Democrats aren’t the party of women -- they’re the party of exploiting them for political gain” she makes the bold statement that democrats don’t really care about women, all they care about is what women can do for them. She does this by giving specific examples of how Democrats are hypocritical when it comes to politicians being accused of sexual misconduct since Republicans are “guilty until proven innocent” and Democrats “get a pass.” She also uses a strong diction and tone words like “despicable”, “reprehensible”, and “puritanical.” This is all to help prove that Democrats don’t actually care about women and only want power. She also includes the fact that Democrats routinely attack their female enemies, including Kavanaugh’s ten year old daughter, to show that Democrats only care about women when they are helping their agenda. Owens intended purpose is to lead the audience on a quest for the facts and help them see that “Democrats don’t really care about women. They only care about what women can do for them.”
Really good article, I like how it ties in hypocrisy to the Clinton dynasty and comes into present day with Lindsey Graham's quote and the mistreatment of Kavanaugh's daughter by liberal cartoonists.
It was a great article that shot down and disproved and counterarguments to prove her claim was accurate and correct.
Very interesting and captivating article choice given the author's ideas contradicting the treatment she could be given, as she is black and speaking out against black lives matter and other related movements. The article claims and attempts to support an extremely biased argument, which is to be expected from such an outlandish claim coupled with a infamously conservative website. Overall, the article made interesting points but was a bit sloppy vocab/diction wise.
You chose a really good article. Candace Owens took a really interesting stance on the topic and she did a really good job to back up her claims.
The author of "Let Kanye be Kanye: The rapper is exercising his rights as an American" vocalizes his view on people who "hate" or disagree with Trump. He uses strong diction, negative tone words to illustrate that the people who hate Trump and hate Kanye for liking Trump is wrong. The author believes that liberals don't support the president even if the president is doing something right. They call supporters of Trump "mentally ill" and "unbalanced." The author vocalizes his point by saying "Kanye... insist on thinking for himself... and Jim Brown was always independent," and "that's what this country is about."
In Roger Cohen's article "An Injudicious Man, Unfit for the Supreme Court" posted in The New York Times he describes the "job interview not a [the] criminal trial," that Brett Kavanaugh went through this year. The rage a man who has spent the majority of his privileged life where he played, "football, basketball, lifted weights, workouts with a great quarter-back, and pro golf tournaments with his dad," was out right displayed at not receiving privilege at the time. Some secrets in his closet have come into the light. Kavanaugh could have possibly been a "teenage drunk" who has now sexually assaulted a woman and is unfit to hold a position in the supreme court due to the attitude he displayed during the trial. Perhaps we should look beyond the connections and money people have and towards the way they hold themselves.
In Robert Costa's report on the Bret Kavanaugh ordeal, he is critical of what Kavanaugh has said what he wants do do and what he believes. Costa points out that what Kavanaugh is saying ironic because he tries to say that he is on the women's side because he is pro life, while when he was in college he was in a fraternity who's chant was: No means yes, yes means anal. It is clear that Costa's intended audience was democratic based, since the words are harsh against Kavanaugh, a republican.
In the editorial article "Another Skirmish at the O.K. Corral" by the Washington times, the author uses strong diction, and pathos like "arbiters", and "decorum" while speaking about his mother and the judgement of the press to emotionally bring in the reader. these rhetorical devices help the author convey his main augment that the press is divided especially on political standpoints.
Paul Bloom wrote for the New york Times an argumentative article about how empathy affects human judgement and action.Bloom argues that empathy is non-essential and that it hinders effective decision making. He does this by providing scientific studies supporting his opinion. Stating that empathy causes disruption and is ineffective Bloom provides situations that prove this.
I think the example of parenting is a great way to tie in real life because i agree empathy should be used in parenting but we shouldnt take the kids whole problem away so they learn to solve it on their own.
This article was intriguing because it made me stop and think about how many people tell me to be empathetic, but in reality empathetic has its place. Being empathetic when someone is freaking out is not helpful, but it is helpful to be calm to help the other person.
In "CDC Investigates Cases Of Rare Neurological 'Mystery Illness' In Kids," written by Joe Neel and Allison Aubrey on October 16, they inform the public of Acute Flaccid Myelitis (AFM). They appeal to pathos by mentioning the average age of children affected rather than range. They also use quotes and statistics as an example of ethos in establishing their trustworthiness. The authors intended to emphasize the importance of observing one's child and watching for signs of serious diseases. The audience is able to be more informed of the dangers of the serious and rare disease that is in a cycle of fluctuating cases biennially.
