Ricardo S. Sanchez: Military Reporters and Editors Forum Luncheon AddressLinks to an external site.
What is the author's claim(s)?
The military and the press need to have a good relation ship. America needs to fully back the war in order to win. Press has a responsibility to report fairly and with certainty that what they claim is true.
Who is the audience for this speech?
What is the tone, purpose, and voice of the speech?
The tone is very serious. The speech reads as a call to action to report without bias and have a full support of war. Its also to report on the war and how he thinks it is going.
What are possible counterarguments to the author's claim(s)? (There may be more than one. List as many as you can think of.)
Freedom of press allows them to report what ever they want and the reader has just as much responsibility as press to avoid bias.
If all of the US isn't backing the war maybe we shouldn't be in it. We shouldn't be involved in the middle east in the first place.
What are possible rebuttals to the counterarguments you listed above?
We are part of the whole world not just the US so we need to be involved in the middle east. If we do ultimately decide we shouldn't be involved we need to fully pull out and accept the repercussions.
