CNBC just released a video titled “How the U.S. avoided a recession for a decade”. And it's a case study of an appeal to authority.

Original video:

Argument from authority, also known as appeal to authority, is when someone’s authority is used as evidence of their claims on its own. It’s a deeply unscientific conduct.

CNBC will try to show you how the U.S. has went through its longest economic expansion in history. And they won’t do it by proposing or explaining an academically scrutinized economic theory. They will do this by letting corporate officials and politicians make their talking points.
