Since Tony Sciascia is an English and journalism student so near
graduation, one naturally supposes that his professors here would
have taught him that making an argument without justification is
ineffective and irresponsible.
Mr. Sciascia mentioned in a letter that “Wal-Mart is…one of
the world’s largest supporters of sweatshops.” The reader provides
no proof for his accusations. Instead, he rejects a key tenet of
the practice of justice, asserting that the company should “reveal
the location and identities of the (supposed sweatshop) factories
they work with,” insisting that the company should prove everyone
wrong. In fact, shouldn’t it be the journalist’s job to bring the
identities of the factories to public view?
Bringing charges against an entity is a task not to be taken so
lightly as to be done in less than 250 words. Provide justification
next time, Tony Sciascia.
