Timothy Noah busts the NRCC memo on privatization of Social Security. So does Josh Marshall. My sophomore rhetoric class had a grand time deconstructing the arguments and busting the fallacies. And they began to learn that the fallacies are tools of rhetoric in politics (and much of the rest of life)…if you can get away with it.
The Rhetorica Network
I offer commentary on the rhetoric of the American conversation, especially as it unfolds in documentary film, the news media, and politics. Check out my feeds on Twitter and Instagram. Also be sure to see my work at Carbon Trace Productions, a non-profit documentary film studio in Springfield, Missouri. I am a Professor of Media & Journalism at Missouri State University. I teach classes in mobile journalism and documentary filmmaking.
