Public speaking class-Unethical Examples
Credibility and ethics are related in that “speaking ethically” is one way that we are rated on our credibility. We are challenged to balance free speech with ethical speech. 2 questions to complete for this section.
1. By Wednesday of this week provide an example of a speech, story, or statement that shows a lack of ethics because of the speaker’s misuse of a) sound evidence and reasoning (only opinion based) b) insensitivity or intolerance to differences or c) dishonesty or plagiarism.
2. Provide the link, or name of the speech or situation and provide a short summation of background information. Why is this an example of a lack of ethics? What should the speaker have done instead, to handle the situation more ethically? Let me know if you need more pages.
