Axia College Material Appendix E Critical Analysis Forms Fill out one form for each source. Source 1 Title and Citation: Abused No More. "Abused No More.(The Well; Society / Rescued Dogs)( pit bull terriers of St. Louis, Missouri)." Time. 174. 22 (Dec 7, 2009): 44. Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center . Gale. Apollo Library- Univ of Phoenix. 3 July 2010 <http://find.galegroup.com.ezproxy.apollolibrary.com/ovrc/infomark.do?&contentSet=IAC- 1 Identify the principal issue presented by the source. The principle issue presented by the source is the abuse of animals and how most people blame the breed. 2 Identify any examples of bias presented by the author. If none exist, explain how you determined this. I noticed a little bit of bias when the author made this statement “There's something especially loathsome about torturing helpless creatures for fun and profit.” This statement makes me assume the author would be more for stricter punishment. 3 Identify any areas that are vague or ambiguous. If none exist, explain how you determined this. In the eighth paragraph, the author went on to mention helpless homeless pets that do not receive as much care as the fighting dogs. I felt the author was vague about whether or not she agreed with the statement. I also was not able to determine where the author was going with the statement. 4 Do you find the source credible? Explain your reasoning. I do find the source credible because the author seemed to have the facts about the situation. Although there was some bias, there were also plenty of facts. 5 Identify and name any rhetorical devices used by the author. If none exist, explain how you determined this. I think Stereotyping was used in the article. The author describes how most people stereotype Pit Bulls as being natural aggressive dogs. 6 Identify and name any fallacies used by the author. If none exist, explain how you determined this. The fallacy that I think was used in the article was begging the question because the author assumed the claim was true and they proceeded to state an argument based off of the claims. 7 State one argument made by the author. The author makes the argument that Pit Bulls are aggressive because of the way they are raised and are just very eager to please their owners. 8 Identify the premises and conclusion of the argument. The premise of the argument is fighting dogs are severely mistreated. The conclusion is even though the dogs used to be fighting dogs, they can still be good and adoptable pets.
