Can anyone help me identify rhetoric, bias, and argumentation in the following video clip?

-----------------

To find the video clip google :

American Rhetoric Movie Speech "Citizen Kane" (1941)

and click on the first link.

-----------------

I have studied rhetoric, but did not understand it very well. I googled "A Handbook of Rhetorical Devices" and clicked the first link that came up. I have looked over the list several times but I am still having a hard time recognizing rhetoric in the speech. I did however find several fallacies, but I'm not sure it that is important. I not sure exactly where bias fits in.

I would appreciate it if some one could lead me in the right direction.

Thanks

  • English -

    bias is any device used to make the reader agree with the writer...whether or not what is said is true.

    For instance... the typical child says "everyone is going". That is a fallacy and it is establishing the child's bias.

    Dogs bite. That is a dog. That dog will bite. That is a fallacy and is establishing the bias the that person is afraid of dogs and believes all of them are bad.

    Most fallacies can be used to support a "bias".
