INFORMATION WARRANT QUALIFIER Policy-relevant information provides taken-for-granted facts to support a policy claim. A warrant is a reason to support a policy claim. A qualifier expresses the approximate truth of a claim, considering the strength of information, warrants, backings, objections, and rebuttals. OBJECTION An objection challenges or opposes information by identifying special conditions or exceptions that reduce confidence in the truth of the information BACKING A backing justifies or backs up a warrant by providing good reasons for believing the warrant OBJECTION REBUTTAL A rebuttal opposes or challenges an objection by identifying special conditions or exceptions that reduce confidence in the truth of the objection. An objection opposes or challenges a backing by identifying special conditions or exceptions that reduce confidence in the truth of the backing. OBJECTION An objection opposes or challenges a qualifier by identifying special conditions or exceptions which reduce confidence in the strength of the qualifier.
