Find a video of a political ad for a state or national candidate in the recent US election–choose an ad from a candidate you are sympathetic with. Then carefully analyze the logic of the ad [post a link to the ad].
Kenneth Burke says communication always reflects, selects, and deflects; that is, we choose words and images that present a version of events that lines up with our beliefs, goals or purposes. That is, the whole truth of a human situation is always more complicated than any particular description of it.
How exactly does the ad select; that is, use words and images to persuade us?
What ideas or perspectives does the ad deflect; that is, whats left out? How are ideas presented in incomplete or possibly misleading ways? What do you think of ads that do this? Obviously, its fair to promote a point of view you believe in; how do we know when the line has been crossed and persuasion goes too far?
Finally, what image of the United States do you think this reflects/presents to the rest of the world?
