Homework Help: Fallacy

Posted by rindi on Friday, December 1, 2006 at 10:41pm.

My assignment is to find fallacies in a newspaper editorial and a opinion magazine. I am having trouble understanding what a fallacy is. I know that it is a false or misleading argument. I am not understanding how to detect fallacy. Everything I read doesn't have any misleading information.

You must read or listen VERY closely. Almost all newspapers, magazines, and TV anchor people become VERY agitated if they are accused of biased reporting. Many will devote editorials as responses to such accusations and almost all go to great lengths to convince the public that they are not biased. I have read many stories, however, in which the bias shows through. Personally, I think some of it is intentional.

Wikkipedia is on the top of the list when I google Fallacy, they are all listed there.

Here's what Ken is referring to.
