1.4 Informal Fallacies Discussion


Apply your knowledge of common informal fallacies committed in arguments and in wider use of language. Consider what you read and/or hear on news media, social platforms, or wherever you spend time paying attentions to what others are saying and writing. Look/listen for arguments or language that make claims that seem misleading. In your Discussion post: (for at least one defective argument or claim:) (1) describe the argument or claim; (2) state where you observed it, and (3) identify the fallacy that characterizes the misguided reasoning. Note: Post your response in the appropriate Discussion topic.
