Your task is to collect an example of a real-world fallacies in reasoning. These may come from newspaper editorials, letters to the editor, print advertisements, magazine articles, web sites, or other published sources in the public domain. You may want to check the internet, I hear that there is lots of high quality information there.

Provide a link to the media.

Identify: Clearly identify or classify the type of fallacy committed. State the single most likely fallacy that is involved. Argue for the appropriateness of your categorization of the fallacy over other possible interpretations. Do not state that an argument involves three or four “possible” fallacies.

Analyze: Include an analysis of the fallacy, indicating how and why the reasoning employed is deficient. Show what the arguer fails to do or fails to prove, and why that makes the argument fallacious. In addition, explain how serious or grave the fallacy is: some fallacies are relatively minor, others entail major shortcomings. Not all fallacies invalidate an argument altogether.

Remedy: Offer a repair or remedy that the arguer could employ to make the argument non-fallacious, or at least less fallacious. How might the arguer have revised the argument to make it more acceptable?
