MLK’s use of pathos and repetition is an effective way to persuade his audience about his position on civil disobedience. In King’s speech he says, “Its ugly record of police brutality is known in every section of this country” (King Page 6). This evidence, revealing MLK’s use of pathos, was used to reach out to the emotional citizens who have either experienced or watched police brutality. The use of pathos is effective because it appeals to emotions and the issue of civil rights and civil disobedience. Civil rights is an emotional subject for those who were affected by it, and MLK is proving his argument on civil disobedience.
This was a fateful act because it could urge Umuofia to attack the missionaries, but Umuofia decided to not go to war.

Mother Jones is a reader-supported nonprofit investigative news organization, reporting on everything from politics and climate change to education and food. Violent Media is a recurring topic nowadays in the United States, as well as around the World, and the influence it may had on cruel events; specifically the culprits of these atrocities. Gerard Jones unsuccessfully delivers the message of “Violent Media is Good for Kids” with the usage of Pathos and Kairos, lack of Ethos, and inadequacy of the opposing views; promoting a biased article The article “Violent Media is Good for Kids” written by Gerard Jones, from my point of view it seems to be a written opinion rather than an informational paper.
A double-edged sword of sorts, the use of emotion in his statements could have both captivated his audience or caused them to dismiss his point entirely, not wanting to admit to the atrocities being brought to light. By bringing up the suffering inflicted on animals, indigenous peoples, the environment, and the legacy of the American pioneer, Carter taps into the one weakness even the strongest man cannot protect against, what makes us human- emotion. However, these tools could not be drawn blatantly, in the event of them being perceived as a direct attack on his audience. Instead, his words needed to be woven covertly, letting the audience think their subconscious had stumbled upon a moral discovery rather than a skillfully calculated bombardment.
Nevertheless, Ephron believes that newspapers should not censor dismaying images because they embody certain issues well. The same theme of death appears in a recent photograph of the blood-spattered death of many Syrians in “air strikes by the Syrian government forces” (Getty Images).

To see one’s own mother or father be killed in front of their very eyes. Could anyone be the same? Could one go back to their daily lives as if nothing had ever happened?

Media in our modern era is the main source of information. What the media reports and says is what shapes our societies views and ideas on certain issues or events. Therefor the media is a powerful industry but sometimes they can be misleading and fickle. In Crocodile Tears Steve Irwin, an aussie icon, is brutally abused and targeted by the media but when he dies the media instantly changes its brutal view into a "heartfelt" sorrow attitude. In Crocodile Tears author Jack Marx uses stylistic features to make people aware of the harsh truth of how the media operates, through manipulation and fickle beliefs they can damage a person image and
News outlets tend to expose the victim’s perpective and details surrounding his or life. When one views the media, he or she notices “ the media’s presentation provides an insight into how it feels to be in the eye of the storm. It considers the messaging, of strong internal communications and of stakeholder engagement” (“Workshop Leaders: Miriam Rich, Stephen Kirby & Maryam Samimi”). As Spoony turns the television on , the news channel showcases the video of the incident between Rashad and Officer Galluzzo while comparing pictures of both Rashad in his ROTC uniform to Officer Galluzzo in his uniform. This news station takes the victim’s viewpoint by focusing on the information that Rashad, a African American male who refused to resist arrest, was injured by a caucasian police officer utilizing unnecessary force ( Reynolds and Kiely 94-95).
He tells the readers that the eye makes his “blood run cold” and because of that he had to kill him. If that’s the case then I could kill a person just because I didn’t like how their teeth looked. No, even if somebody had a another person coming out of their eye you shouldn’t take their life or treat them any different. I mean of course there are many, many violent acts in today’s world, but people nowadays should try to make this world a least a little
Mike Haynie takes a stand on how veterans are portrayed to the public through the media. Being a veteran himself, he is well aware of how the media’s reports are focused on displaying the negative side of veterans. Cases like Itzcoatl Ocampo’s, paint veterans to the public as being violent. Awareness on this issue has been raised before.

Throughout Chinese history before the Tang and Song dynasties, the daily lives of women and issues from their perspective have not been adequately recorded, due to a male dominated society. However, from the Tang to the Song dynasty, visual and material sources appear which further explains the status of women in society, cultural values, but most importantly, examples of acts of courage, selflessness, and strength. The discussion of women starting with the Tang dynasty is especially important since this is the start of open-mindedness and liberal ideas resulting in women in politics, a woman as empress, and even freedom of expression through poetry and art. However, once shifting to the Song dynasty, the status of women declined further in
Meanwhile, due to the media coverages, mass shooting slowly become a serious threat to the people. Although the media has exaggerated the detail and statistics of the shooting, which make their coverages look more trustworthy, researchers and reporters
