    words does help with having the reader believe in the author’s argument. With bias, the author uses this to really get what he believes out there. He can express what he believes and not say anything about the other side of the argument. This is one example of bias that the author used, “Initially, the Easton Area School District told Brianna Hawk and Kayla Martinez they were being punished for "disrespect, defiance and disruption," but it later shifted ground and argued that the word "boobies" contained a "sexual double entendre"’(Times Editorial Board). The author used lots of connotative words so you can understand how ridiculous they were for suspending these girls for nothing. Another example was, “Writing for the majority, Judge D. Brooks Smith said that, although a school could ban expression that was "plainly lewd," it must allow students to engage in "ambiguously lewd" speech so long as they are commenting on political or social issues” (Times Editorial Board). This example wanted to show that the school who suspended the girls couldn’t actually suspend them for supporting a foundation. Those examples help to show how bias influences the reader's opinion. The author used the effects of rhetoric to their advantage. They could use facts or even do something emotional, and they chose to use facts. By using facts, that just made what the author believes be even more real and true to the reader. One example of this is, “In the landmark 1969 case Tinker vs. Des Moines…
