Com 220- Bias, Rhetorical Devices and Argumentation After watching this speech from “Citizen Kane” I did find that there was bias in his speech. He used some political bias when talking about the promises made by Mr. Getties (the other politician running). I also found that he used fallacies in his speech; though out the whole speech Mr. Kane uses “Ad hominem” to attack the character and campaign of Mr. Getties. He uses “Scare Tactics” to make people afraid of the “Evil & Villainy” of Mr. Getties. Mr. Kane does use a lot of rhetorical devices to lighten up his speech and to make his opponent look bad.

    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.
