This article was written by Tina Nguyen but it is about Donald Trump and has moments where Trump expresses his feelings on the Russia topic. The article was written on December 19, 2017, but the event took place in November and early December and is still occurring. The intended audience are those who want to know more information about the Russian case. The main purpose of this is to inform people what Trump is actually aware of. The subject is the bad news that Trump will be receiving. The tone of this article is apathetic since Trump is not fully aware of the Russia problem.
The author's diction is very complex adding a new level of sophistication to the article. The author shows that she is personally afraid of the outcome because she describes that Trump is too laid back and has no knowledge of what is actually happening. The author also appeals to ethos a bunch in her article quoting things from The Wall Street Journal and fellow White House employees. She quotes sayings from them to make the article be more credible and a more reliable source for those who want to gather information. She also quotes Donald Trump himself to show what Trump thinks about it all and how laid back he is, "In November, Trump echoed with his own sentiments, reportedly telling his golfing buddies, 'This investigation’s going to be over with pretty soon.'" In reality, Trump is under one impression saying that everything will be okay and there is nothing to worry about and that it will all blow over, but the White House lawyers are saying something completely different. Because Trump is unaware of what is actually happening with the Russian case, it makes the author write the article in a very apathetic tone. Finally, the author's purpose is to explain to people why Trump is being so laid back and so we can get further insight on the scenario.
The author of this article is Kenzie Brynat, but the article itself is overall about Dame Angela Lansbury and what she believes in about sexual harassment. The article was published this morning on November 28th. The intended audience are those who want to understand the reasoning behind Dame Angela Lansbury claim, which states that "We must sometimes take the blame, women. I really do think that." The main purpose of this article is to inform those who want to know Lansbury's opinion. The article is overall talking about sexual harassment and how Lansbury believes that it is sometimes the woman's fault. Women may claim the tone of the article to be cynical, which means questioning the goodness of humanity. Women, and other people, have may state that it is never the woman's fault for them to get sexually harassed. This is an example of someone who is on the other side of the spectrum. Some may argue that the tone is also matter of fact.
Bryant uses words that get to the point quick and easy. Bryant does not provide any other information to give us what she thinks about the overall topic, but she does provide enough information to give the readers a good sense of how people reacted to what Lansbury stated. Bryant uses a word choice that does not sugar coat anything and is very straight to the point. Bryant also displays ethos when writing this article. She uses direct quotes from what Lansbury said when she was asked about this topic. After Lansbury's quotes were published and everyone could view them, people did not receive them well at all.
Dame Angela Lansbury strongly believes, “There are two sides to this coin. We have to own up to the fact that women, since time immemorial, have gone out of their way to make themselves attractive. And unfortunately it has backfired on us—and this is where we are today. We must sometimes take blame, women. I really do think that.” Women all around did not agree with her statement at all. Many people believe that the woman who was sexually assaulted did absolutely nothing wrong and it was the person who executed the actions fault. This is a very touchy topic and there are many different sides on this topic, but nobody is wrong. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and this is just an opinion from an elderly lady who is very influential.
The speaker of the article is Yohana Desta. The article was written after the BET awards which occurred on October 6th, 2017. The intended audience are people who are interested and choose to watch the BET awards. The main purpose of this article is to inform people about what Eminem sang in his rap song, which was released at the award show. Eminem released a rap song that is targeting Trump and how awful of a person he is, and how he dissed all of his Pro-Trump fans. The tone that Eminem uses in his song is very disdainful, considering that he is trashing his Pro-Trump fans. Desta uses an informative tone when explaining all of the things that Eminem rapped about.
Eminem uses a very vulgar choice of words when he is going through his rap, using phrases like, "I'm drawing in the sand a line: you're either for or against/And if you can't decide who you like more and you're split/On who you should stand beside, I'll do it for you with this: F*** you!" Of course there are other lines that Eminem used, but that was the one that most if his fans were hurt by. Desta appeals to ethos the much by providing the specific lyrics that were written. There is also ethos when they provide the full performance by Eminem at the BET awards.
The tone of the article is more directed towards Eminem because it is his rap song that is being written about and how this affects his fan base. After Eminem shared this with the world, I am sure that he lost a huge amount of fans and lost respect. The author's main purpose was to give further incite on the story with his rap song. The author claims that this is not the first time that this has occurred, Eminem bashing Trump. However, this is the first time he has bashed his followers, now who knows what is going to happen.
