Use the uploaded textbook (Paul, R., Elder, L. (2012). Critical Thinking: Tools for Taking Charge of Your Professional and Personal Life) as a source and at least 1 other outside scholarly/academic sources.

Question: Interact with a current news story. You may read any article that you like. Look up the concept of synthesis. Go beyond concrete thinking, and use synthesis of thought to develop new concepts. So, read the article. Then there are 2 parts to the discussion post:
1) Are there any issues with the intellectual standards in the article? That is, are there problems with Clarity, Accuracy, Precision, Relevance, Depth, Breadth, Logicalness, Significance or Fairness in the article?
Please be careful to be specific here. You’re going to have to read the article closely and point out the problems you find with the author’s argument as they relate to these intellectual standards.
2) Was the author obviously biased in his argument?
To answer this question, you’re going to have to make sure that you understand what is meant by bias – you can research bias a bit here: http://philosophy.hku.hk/think/fallacy/biases.php
You may choose any article that you like.
