Imagine a world in which everyone was honest and trustful. This world may sound like the world that people are living in, but in reality, people have something to hide or lie about. Although it is not possible to make someone tell the truth, it is possible to investigate and discover whether someone is lying or not.

By including the source from which he derived these statistics, Gilbert could create a more trustworthy evidence and help convince the audience. As the argument progresses, the author uses articles from the New York Times as well as another Daily Beast article when discussing the background of the topic. These evidences are not very authoritative because they come from articles that might have bias. Both the New York Times, and the Daily Beast can be opinionated, so taking sources from less biased and more firsthand sources would be more reliable. The author also employs quotes from the protestors to support his opinion.

In an article, Warren stated that “We tend to judge ourselves by our intentions and others by their actions” (Warren 1). This is because no one can truly know what a person 's motives are, but they can know their own intentions. It is easier to conclude an idea of a person based on what one can see and know for sure. A person can have good intentions, but the outcome may turn out unfavorable, knowing the final action is simpler to judge because it can be known for sure. Warren also stated that “If we judged ourselves by how our actions are perceived by others, we may become more sensitive and understanding of any hurtful responses by them” (Warren 1).

America 's versatility is its greatest strength, but how it is interpreted by its citizens is what causes conflict. As an American citizen, I am able to enjoy the liberties granted to me by the United States Constitution. I am allowed to speak freely and bear arms.

In a travel or any type of writing there is either reporting or producing. When the author is reporting what they are writing about, they try to be as accurate as possible and stay open-minded. However, when you produce you are already have an opinion on the matter and are more close-minded. Their composition about their subject is based more off of their own personal perspective than the reality of the situation.
From a different viewpoint, this can all be fake. Today, people can alter footage, change audio and make fake documents look real. This is very dangerous because people who take these things as truth will react in a way that will shake the foundations of society. If this documentary’s purpose was to mislead the people to get what they want and people believed it, then we really don’t know fact and fiction in this world. People can be easily manipulated with by small things.
A researcher must use credible sources in his or her argument for readers to be contended with his or her argument. For sources to be credible the researcher should sort various sources to determine the fairest and clearest sources. It is a good practice to recognize shortcoming and biases from each source.
