Question description

This Wiki has TWO parts:

1) Use the Internet to locate at least two (2) advertisements that exhibit any of the 12 fallacies discussed in Chapter 4. Post one or two images. Identify the fallacy demonstrated in the selected advertisements and explain why.  Examine whether or not their use of this type of fallacy is effective -- are you convinced? Why do you think others may (or may not) be convinced?

2) Develop a "marketing campaign" for a product or service in which you intentionally utilize a logical fallacy to persuade consumers. This can be in the form of word document.

3. Two fallacies I chose were (Red Herring) and (Appeal to Popularity). You can use either one.

4. List References

5. This assignment can be half to one page.
