Should Politicl Rhetoric Be Toned Down


The 2011 Tucson shootings revived the debate over the connections, if any, between political rhetoric and violent acts. That debate quickly spread to Washington and beyond. It began within the first hours after the attack in Tucson. Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik told a news conference that "angry talk" could have incited the alleged gunman. In the is PBS NewsHour Video, linked below, Jim Leher examines the debate on the power of words and the state of political rhetoric. Jim Lehrer gets the views of columnists Mark Shields and David Brooks as well as Professors Beverly Gage of Yale and Kathleen Hall Jamieson of the University of Pennsylvania.


After viewing the video, formulate a general response to the topic.  Here are some general questions to get you started:

  1. What connection, if any, is there between politicl rhetoric and violiont acts?
  2. How can we "tone down" political rhetoric and still have a vibrant debate on the key issues confronting our nation.
  3. What role, if any, do you see for the media as it covers controversial subjects in a "hyped-up" fashion.
