An example of bias in this speech is obviously political bias. Kane states that his only purpose is to point out and make public the dishonesty and villainy of Jim Getty’s political machine. This statement is an example of an ad hominem. The first part of the speech when the campaigner is talking starts off with bias towards Jim Getty’s. The campaigner shows bias in favor of Kane against Jim Getty’s also. It is also bias when Kane says Jim Getty’s has “something less of a chance”. The campaigner shows bias when he says “I am speaking of Charles Foster Kane, the fighting liberal, the friend of the working man, the next Governor of this State”. The campaigner expresses bias by portraying Kane in a positive light amongst the citizens. An example of rhetorical devices used in this speech is when Kane says “with one purpose only: to point out and make public the dishonesty, the downright villainy, of Boss Jim W. Getty’s political machine – now in complete control of the government of this State!”
