Transcript of Hasty Generalization
X% of all observed A's are B's.
Therefore X% of all A's are B's. This is fallacious because there is not enough evidence to conclude that all X's are A's and B's The fallacy included in this ad is Hasty Generalization. In the commercial, it states that four out of five doctors recommend sugar free gum. They then go on to say that therefore, doctors recommend trident gum. This is fallacious because we don't have enough evidence to conclude that the doctors specifically recomend trident. This message is meant to persuade the audience by encouraging parents to give their kids the gum doctors recompensed. This shows that the audience doesn't really care about the legitimacy of the advertisement, but rather the falsified opinions of medical professionals.
