I'm having a difficult time finding a specific sourse or example to write on. I can't find something that is clear cut for me to analyze.
Here is the assignment paper text:
"many kinds of writing--indeed, many kinds of media, from television, to film, to radio--make arguments, even if they do not do so directly. This is
especially true of fictional writing. As we discussed in class, satire is a particularly good instance of this; but we find it in many other kinds of
writing as well.
In this essay, you will analyze a source that uses an indirect method to make its point. for your paper, you may write about any of the satires we
discussed in class; or you may discuss any other popular example such as theonion.com or the daily show; finally, you may also look at other forms
including, but not limited to, fiction you enjoy, a film, a T.V. show, a magazine article, or anything else that you believe is indirectly creating an
argument. alternatively, you may also write a critique of somthing that you believe is biased without realizing it, for example, an advertisement, a
product label--hekc, you could even analyze the syllabus or this assignment. the point is to let you follow your interests.
begin your peice by summarizing your object--its context, make up, and apparent purpose. then begin to develop an argument about how there is more
going on than meets the eye. be sure to include plenty of direct quotations(if it is a written peice) or descriptions(if its a visual peice). as a
general rule, use around 3-5 quotes(but always consult your writer's intuition on such matters as well)
