This week, we take a look at marketing and advertising, and see how it affects our ideas and the decisions that we make. And the end of chapter 10, two different authors give their perspectives on how we should deal with advertising, specifically as it relates to children: The CSPI’s in “Limited Food Marketing to Children” and Robert Liodice in “Advertising and Freedom of Speech: Beware of the Food Nanny.” This week, you are going to be responsible for taking what you have learned about advertising and applying it to one of these articles.
Read both of the given articles, and choose one of them to read more carefully. Then, in a written assignment, use the ideas from this week and your own experience to answer the following question: Does the author make a good argument? Why or why not? Make sure to support your answer with specific references both to the class materials as well as to the article, using appropriate APA citation.
PLEASE NOTE: This assignment is not asking neither for a summary of the articles NOR your perspective on this issue. Instead, in this assignment and many others, you will be doing an analysis of a particular article using the ideas and criteria specified by the assignment.
