who we interact with our memory

[Relate the thesis statement to the rhetorical triangle.] People who use their memory before reading an article from a journalist most of the time are skeptical to receive new information because the bias they have created during their life could contradict what the expert said.

[Analyze rather than summarize. How do the authors use the rhetorical triangle to convince the reader and how do they support their arguments?] Memory can be or best friend or our worst enemy; This it’s the message I received from Chabris and Simon’s article, “Why our memory Fails Us”. The article tried to explain that we as humans are affected in our judgement by our memories including the most qualify and intellectual people around the globe. Putting as example Anne Armstrong [who? She is not in the article.], who is an expert in his area, the article shows that he committed a mistake, and he is judge by people negatively even thou [SP: though] he admitted his mistake.

[Analyze rather than summarize.] Virginia Heffernan, who works for The New York Times, wrote an article called “Comment Is a King”; She explains here the power in comments that people made, and how they can affect the audience that read them in different ways. The example given by the author describes a situation that happened to Anne Applebaum, who is an American political journalist; because of the comments that were made about her work, people who read them first had a negative predisposition when they read the articles that she made in which case affect her credibility.  [Relate to rhetorical triangle.]

What is the relationship between these two articles? First, When I read both articles, I see the influence of two of the rhetorical triangle [which ones?]; however, I perceive more information that persuasion. Second, the way both writers create their articles in a way to persuade their audience by using logos as examples or giving facts and information that could make readers understand what was happening. third, other strategy was using pathos to connect the readers in an emotional way with the articles by making them think twice about how bad is memory and how their comments could affect what people think.

I miss the comment part of the homework…
