That is pretty nice in that those styles of argument are not content sensitive yet they are probably more effective than the actual content. We have only the journalists integrity to assure us that the emotions are appropriate for the issue.

This also worries me that it can give an illusion of understanding. While numbers are presented to you they do not form the main point of the message. You know what attitude you are supposed to have to the topic in question even if you completely misunderstood what was being said.
