The Broadview Reader

A comparison of two articles from “The Broadview Reader” in terms of content and form of argument.

As this comparative review will demonstrate, while Himmelfarb is both appreciative and critical of the media of the Internet Bettelheim is more “biased” in his passion for the moving picture medium. Thus, although Bettelheim’s review can be considered a critical work in that it illuminates aspects of its subject through the author’s perspective, it is lacking in the “objectivity” which allows one to perceive both the positive and the negative aspects of a particular subject.
