Transcript of Logical Fallacy Examples in Everyday life

Misleading Statistics
Loaded Question
This fallacy is used as a rhetorical tool. For example, if the question, "Have you stopped beating your wife?" was asked, the most said choices being yes or no, both admit that the presupposed facts are true.
Genetic Fallacy
This links with stereotypes in many ways. This is the fallacy of virtue. Occurs when one claims another to not be trustworthy based on their origins and not current ideas, leading too a less relevant conclusion.
Argumentum Ad Populum
The iTunes commercials are a good example of this fallacy. Here, a proposition is believed to be true because most people agree. Much like a bandwagon affect.
Logical Fallacy Examples in Everyday life
Christian De Lira, Kevin Bonilla, Luis Fuentes, and Dylan Brasher.
Appeal to Force
In propaganda, the designers of the posters usually use appeal to force to get you to believe in their ideas which might be wrongful.
Slippery Slope
Either/Or
Appeal to Improper Authority
Also, dictators use force to make you believe in their ideas. Dictators usually have an iron grip around their citizens keeping them obedient.
Many toothbrush/toothpaste commercials use misleading statistics to make their product look appealing to customers. An example of this is an ad saying " 4/5 Dentist recommend this brand!"
The Nokia 920 commercial acts like you only have two options when switching phones. To fight (fighting over which phone is better) or switch (just switching to the Nokia). The Commercial does not present any other options. This is called the either/or or the black or white.
A Gamefly commercial with Blake Griffin in it makes him seem like an official figure while he is just a basketball player. This is called appeal to Improper authority.
Many toothbrush/toothpaste commercials use misleading statistics to make their product look appealing to customers. An example of this is an ad saying " 4/5 Dentist recommend this brand!" while the people surveyed 50 people getting only 4 recommendations.
The Direct TV ads are a good example of this logical fallacy. A slippery slope argument is where a small first step leads to a chain of related events that end in a significant effect.
Personal Attack
AKA the Ad Hominem fallacy, or poisoning the well. This happens when a trait is used to invalidate the opponent's argument.

Red Herring
This fallacy is an attempt to change the topic, or divert attention.
