Weiner and His Sexting Scandal

with one comment

Weiner’s scandal has developed so fast. Maybe a week ago, many newspaper and blog still call Weiner’s scandal as “weiner scandal”. Then Washington Post develop the story. They call Weiner’s scandal as Weiner’s e-ffair. We can underline that Washington Post bring the new lexicon, e-ffair, come into sight. Then the e-ffair bring me to Sexting word. Thanks to wikipedia and urban dictionary that have recorded the word. The story is still developing. Now, ABC officially use sexting to describe Weiner’s e-ffair.

Under fierce pressure from fellow Democrats to resign in a sexting scandal, Rep. Anthony Weiner announced Saturday he was entering professional treatment at an undisclosed location and requested a leave of absence from Congress.

What is Ad Hominem?

leave a comment »

I don’t know what “ad hominem” means. So I did some online research. Again, Wikipedia become my saviour. They added the the phrase on their database. But, I just fascinated by the meaning because ad hominem is simply means logical fallacy.

An ad hominem (Latin: "to the man"), short for argumentum ad hominem, is an attempt to link the truth of a claim to a negative characteristic or belief of the person advocating it.[1] The ad hominem is normally described as a logical fallacy,[2] but it is not always fallacious; in some instances, questions of personal conduct, character, motives, etc., are legitimate and relevant to the issue.[3]
