Your assignment is to review the videos, or you can find the entire movie on YouTube. Write a minimum of 150 words using the video clips to identify 5 of the 7 reasons for applying faulty logic.
It is essential in your workplace to root out the facts before sending even brief messages. If you send an inaccurate message based on inaccurate facts, you will lose Ethos, your credibility.
The assignment is worth 50 points, 10 points per each faulty logic you identify in the video clips, and explain why it is faulty logic.
