  2. Do you think these emotions were planned by the producers of the show?
  3. If so, what language was used to incite these emotions?
  4. Do you feel like you were led to a particular conclusion rather than left to make up your own mind? How so?
  5. Was information presented in meaningful context when comparing both shows?
  6. Was the information presented in a way that was factual, informative, descriptive, persuasive, coercive? Why?
