Michael Roberts of Rexxfield on Journalistic Ethics

By committing some of these definitions to memory, they will be able to develop an effective intellectual self-defense system against unethical journalism.

Brisbane, Australia (PRWEB) May 04, 2013

Roberts' list details some of the more common fallacious arguments employed by journalists when publishing inaccurate attack pieces.

Roberts said "Although the list is by no means exhaustive, I am hoping it will be a good first step for people without any formal exposure to studies in philosophy and logic. By committing some of these definitions to memory, they will be able to develop an effective intellectual self-defense system against unethical journalism." He added "…it is amazing how many times lives have been ruined by inaccurate and defamatory attack articles published online or newspapers where readers have assumed the assertions to be true simply because they are in black-and-white."
