> (For the sake of stirring the pot, so to speak, on this issue): What exactly IS the difference between "merely presenting information" and advocacy? It is merely "words that actuate" or must it be something else? Can one have advocacy about a point of view that only entails "how one views the data?" If one presents information does the speaker not choose which information to present and HOW to present it? Is it not another kind of advocacy? Does the speaker not attempt to persuade the audience about his/her ethos, the credibility of the "data" being presented, and that the data is "fair and balanced" to the extent possible?
receive this data.
There's an old proverb that says just about whatever you want it to.
