Double speak is a way of making truth sound more acceptable to someone. It’s also a way in which words are distorted or reversed so that they sound more different. One use of double speech in contemporary mass is the use of jargon so as to confuse the receiver.

Deception is an idea, facts or allegations spread to individual and contemporary mass to impact and influence without using the truth. In most cases deception brings about damage to contemporary mass (Rains & Turner 2007). Deception would include omissions of essential facts that brings meaning but concealing the real truth.

 Scamming is another kind of deception whereby someone plays a game to get a quick profit. According to Aristotle one can succeed or fail based on his proofs which include:

  1. Ethos-it is used to show good traits and credentials
  2. Pathos-use of emotional appeals this is when the persuader   uses the emotions of the listener to solve his/her case
  3. Finally the logos in Aristotle words.

The three types of persuasion analyzed are:

Advertisement is all about issuing announcement through media such as newspapers, televisions, radios, etc. Tactics used were: appeal to emotions [pathos], endorsement and repetition.

Political rallies are usually campaigns that is aimed at influencing decisions’ of the mass to cast their votes on a leader of their choice (Rains & Turner 2007). He showed good credentials and traits [ethos] by how he talked, his intentions and how he presented himself to us.

Sermons are convincing people on a certain religion. According to Aristotle the church preacher showed good traits [ethos] and he could qualify as a good role model. The preacher used emotion appeal [pathos] to win the hearts of congregation.
