I will point out specific examples that show how they try to persuade you to believe or go against the legalization. When reading and using literary tools, you have to know what each of these tools mean.
First, Ethos, which means using the appeal to authority to prove your point, or using someone who is more creditable than yourself in the subject at matter.
This is successful because that person may be more creditable then the author. It makes the argument more believable than if just the author had just said it.
The second rhetorical tool, Pathos which means to appeal to emotion, they want to try to evoke your emotions most the time sympathy.
This is successful because it makes a personal connection with the audience it affects a feeling that they may have felt before whether it be bad or good. In the ABC News broadcast they talk about the legalization of marijuana and what had happened over the first year of 2 states legalizing marijuana.
They begin with an introduction with the actor Tommy Chong who participated in recreational use of marijuana, illegally as he talks about how times have changed for marijuana usage. Following that they move into the medical and legal side of the argument stating facts to back up both sides of the argument.
They use many experts of their specific fields to explain these sides. They also explain both sides of the argument without bias making their argument strong using both the negative and the positives of the subject of legalization of marijuana. Ethos The ABC broadcast uses ethos about 4 minutes into the video when they bring up a lady by the name of Dr.
Paula Riggs who talks about how marijuana affects the brain.
This is ethos because Instead of just the reporter saying the fact they use a doctor who is more creditable than a reporter. It is successful because it shows you that someone who has spent years in school and more than likely studies this field of research believes it and has evidence on it.
Logos They then continue to use logos when talking about what has happened over the first year with the legalization of marijuana in Colorado.
He uses these facts to try to persuade the audience that the legalization of marijuana has many positives. By using facts it shows the audience he knows what he is talking about and the difference between fact and opinion.
This is successful because it takes away many concerns the audience might have with legalizing marijuana. It also has an appeal to good economy because you might be going through rough times and a good economy can fix a bad financial situation.
This is what many authors will do to try to sway you using logic, it can be appealing so you have to question why would the author put facts here for me.
They want to give a good story and make sure the audience knows what is going on with a certain matter. This is how someone might use pathos for you to think as legalization as a positive aspect, without having a strong reason why yourself.
It is very appealing and affective and you have to be sure not to fall for their opinion, if it is not what you truly believe. Be willing to question are they trying to evoke something in me to move me in that direction in this argument.
Conclusion In conclusion the ABC news broadcast was a great example of the use of ethos and logos. These are two good ways for them to approach this aspect because it is the use of logic and reasoning and appeal to authority.
By bringing in doctors, politicians and facts they show the world what is happening along the line of legalization of marijuana without being bias toward any side of the argument. Pathos would have hindered that non bias report and it was a smart move to not use it in this case.The number of people pointing out to the numerous reasons why marijuana should be legal is growing daily.
