Being informed by last week’s reading material on pitfalls of language, find ONE BRIEF media example of language being used in a misleading/deceptive manner (due to e.g. ambiguity, vagueness, etc.). This can be in a short video clip or paragraph in an article on the web (news sites are a great place to look). First, begin by providing a link to your example. Second, point out exactly what it is in your example that you’ll be critically assessing. Third, explain why you think that your example contains an instance of language being used in a misleading or deceptive manner.
