GandhI Umana's curator insight, March 3, 10:17 PM
I thought this article was very interesting to read. And I find myself agreeing to it, to an extent. This article reminded me of a the reading "Backpack vs. Briefcases." That reading had mentioned in how to see the use of rhetorical analysis and how to use it in your everyday. And everyday, for me at least, I am exposed to media. The media is known for using rhetorical analysis and using them on people to sway them. This article mentions how that we should not believe everything we read because these days everything is filtered out. And I do believe that because these days there is many things unspoken. The media tends to emphasize on certain topics but not focus on other. Even though it has equal or more importance. And the reading comes in handy in seeing how rhetorical analysis is being used. This article shows that mostly every news we see is fake and do not hold their true form. Although I do believe that there are descent articles out there that hold some truth but perhaps I am being optimistic.
