Thank you for smoking

In a 1000 or more word rhetorical analysis essay (typed, double spaced), analyze the use and effect of argument (persuasion and rhetorical strategies) in the “Committee Scene” from Thank You for Smoking (I have posted a link on Canvas to the video and text of the scene).    Remember analyze for rhetorical strategies such as appeals–ethos, pathos logos,.  Also consider more specific use of appeals– to fear, guilt, freedom, choice, etc… Also note the use of fallacies and how they are used to insinuate a logical argument.  Think also about the Nick Naylor’s intent.  The context is a congressional hearing on weather cigarette packs should come with a skull and crossbones label.  Website: https://www.americanrhetoric.com/MovieSpeeches/moviespeechthankyouforsmoking2.html
