The speech "Charles Foster Kane Campaigns for Governor" is full of bias, fallacies and makes use of many rhetorical devices, which comes across as convincing argument as to why Kane should become the next governor. The speaker from the start of the speech has a political bias against Jim Gettys the current governor, and the speaker labels Gettys time in office as an "evil domination". The campaigner is using Gettys as a scapegoat for the problems that have taken place during his term that may not of been problems that Gettys had any hand in, but Gettys is certainly taking the blame. The campaigner then goes on to show even more of their political bias for Kane by depicting him as a " fighting liberal and friend of the working man" the campaigner although fails to provided facts that would support these claims and is just basing the argument on their own personal preferences. There is also the use of the hyperbole rhetorical device because the campaigner is exaggerating the situation and trying to make it out to be more than it really is.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
