Tutor description

This paper is provided as study guides only please do not submit this document directly to any university. In the last five years a lot of companies have gone under do to unscrupulous acts by the executives who ran the companies. While this paper is in no way written to defend these individuals, these incidents have provided multiple examples of appeal to ignorance from news organizations and by the executives themselves aimed at others to imply guilt. Ad ingnorantium is the fallacy of arguing on the basis of what is known or can be proven. When the Enron went bankrupt many people blamed the former CEO Jeffery Skilling of causing the down fall before he left just a short time before Enron collapsed. Business Week printed a report on the companies decline and reported on each executive's role in the company and how they may have caused the problem.
