Read the news report, ‘Most Canadians want pot legalized, poll shows,’’ 1 along with the background information provided in the text box below it. The report you are to critique is found on the following page. Write a critique of the news report itself, and an assessment of the reasoning in the news report, in which you focus on weaknesses the proficient reasoner should note. In preparing your answer, keep in mind the points made in Lesson 10. In your assessment, discuss whichever of the following are relevant: credibility, news reporting, polling, inferences, studies and causal reasoning. The example will not call for discussion of every one of the aspects of reasoning we have studied. Discuss all and only those aspects of the reasoning that are relevant to the assessment of the example. Clearly identify your discussion of each aspect of reasoning you examine (E.g. use the terms found in the Lessons and text). Be sure to clearly identify in each case whatever claims or evidence you are discussing, and to offer adequate support for any criticisms you make. End your assessment by drawing a conclusion about whether or not you would accept the main claim(s) put forward on the basis of the report. In your conclusion you should also judge the overall strength of the report on the basis of your assessment. Your answer should be clearly written, well organized, and coherent. I suggest at least three drafts before settling on your final draft.
