“Authorizing torture is a bad and dangerous idea that can easily be made to sound plausible.” This is a shockingly true statement. Heymann’s purpose in writing this article is to persuade readers to agree with him that torture should not be authorized. Heymann uses the persuasive appeal of pathos primarily in this article to convince his readers to agree with him. Although that is not to say he did not use other forms of persuasive appeal, heymann also used Logos and Ethos, just not as strongly as Pathos. After examining the article, heymann’s use of Pathos should be seen as effective at persuading his audience because of how he uses positive and negative emotions, writes clearly and applies vivid details.

Behind the gatekeeping, it affects how the agenda setting which is a duty of the mass media to public. Cohen (1963) stated that agenda setting is “the press may not be successful much of the time in telling people what to think, but it is stunningly successful in telling its readers what to think about”.
