Analyzing Credibility Assignment

Many of us remember September 11, 2001 as "The Day the World Changed." The interview "Giuliani Remembers 9/11" done on CNN by Larry King with Giuliani was very heartfelt but also opinionated.

It is so true for many who had family such as I did who were greatly impacted by what happened.

Even though it is an opinion, that we as a nation hope does not happen again, we need to be prepared and not wait until it is too late. As for Progressive it is their opinion that you can save money with their company over other top rated companies.

I feel that both the news clip and the commercial reflect our society as a
