Comprehensive Arguement Anaylsis

I have been struggling with my critical thinking class, I am have difficulty in identifying rhetorical devices, fallacies and arguments validity. I understand the rules of the site, and do not intend to submit your work for mine. I would like to use it as a reference, to see if I am on the right track. I will attach two articles and I am tasked to find the following:

o Identify the principal issue presented by the source.
o Identify any examples of bias presented by the author. If none exist, explain how you
determined this.
o Identify any areas that are vague or ambiguous. If none exist, explain how you
determined this.
o Do you find the source credible? Explain your reasoning.
o Identify and name any rhetorical devices used by the author. If none exist, explain
how you determined this.
o Identify and name any fallacies used by the author. If none exist, explain how you
determined this.
o State one argument made by the author.
o Identify the premises and conclusion of the argument.
o Is the author's argument valid or invalid, sound or unsound, strong or weak? Explain
how you determined this.
o Does the author use moral reasoning? If not, explain how you determined this.
