7. False Dilemma Treatment of knowledge issue 5. Selectivity of Perception 3. Confirmation Bais The people of Egypt have had enough of a failed dictatorship masquerading as a democracy.

No foundation for the claims was provided but they’re repeated regularly on CNN, the NBCs, Fox, and the print media.
Thus, a false dilemma is created for the public: support the right of people to determine their own fate or protect your safety and the current standard of living, as it were. 7. False Dilemma 1.
