>use of extreme words Use of fear-mongering
language (again) Liberal v. Republican Stereotyping Healthcare reform has been and will continue to be one of the major political issues in the US. Why does it matter... 54.5% of information comes from Online News articles The media leans towards sensationalism when reporting in order to draw in a larger audience. This can lead to weakness in validity as well as bias when discussing the topic at hand. Healthcare is an issue that affects everyone in the US Biased information can cause the citizens of the US to make irrational decisions, based on misconstrued information GENERAL THOUGHTS
