Presidential Debate

The final Presidential Debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump takes place on 10/19 starting at 6:00 p.m. It should end at 7:30 p.m. It is available on most broadcast channels (among others ABC, NBC, FOX) and cable (MSNBC, CNN, etc.). It is also on the radio and will be rerun many many times on television and YouTube after it ends. So you should be able to find it at a time that works for you.

ASSIGNMENT: Analyze the debate. You may choose to analyze the tone of the debate, discuss a point that is made by either party, or try to speculate the reasons behind a particular facial expression. Think of the critical thinking elements we have discussed, and see if you can apply them to the debate (assumptions, facts, opinions, viewpoints, fallacies, etc.) Since this is a short paper it may be most effective to look for a single element during the debate.
