    Dissecting an ANTZ News Article

    Let’s take a typical, fear-peddling pro-ANTZ, anti-E-cigarette news story and take it apart piece by piece, just for kicks. I wonder if we can reach 20 logical fallacies and/or journalistic manipulation techniques in one short e-zine article. The article I’ve chosen for this little experiment is called “Doctors caution use of e-cigarettes, saying vaping is worse than smoking the real thing” written for by Linda Hurtado:

    I chose this article because it is a perfect example of every other article about the supposed dangers of E-cigarettes. These articles have been written more or less the same way since 2008/2009. They’re still citing FDA Statements that have since been withdrawn or corrected. They liberally use the old red herring approach by giving you a personality to relate to in order to evoke an emotion or two. This article has ALL of it! So dissecting this one statement by statement essentially dissects about 98% of the ANTZ similar articles and reports at the same time.
