I’m studying for my Sociology class and need an explanation.
Find an argument from a politician, journalist, or other public figure that commits one of the informal fallacies. Find a recent argument (within the last 6 months). Provide a link to your source (don’t use a fallacy someone else online has identified – the point is to find your own example! There are many out there!) Summarize the argument, and explain how it commits the fallacy. How could the argument be improved to avoid committing the fallacy? Explain and discuss.
The essay should be at least 550 words long or longer is recommended.
