Spinsanity weighs in with its analysis of Al Gore’s criticism of partisan media outlets and the subsequent punditry. As usual, Spinsanity’s work is balanced. I think they provide an excellent service, and I commend them for it. But I wish they would properly expand their definitions of “rhetoric.” As a rhetoric scholar, I’m peeved by their continual use of rhetoric as a pejorative term.
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.
