Week 3 Assignment The 2 articles I had chosen are on Blackfish and Sea World. The first title is called SeaWorld Questions Ethics of ‘Blackfish’ Investigator. I always thought that there was no doubt in my mind that Sea World was a good place that was until the movie Blackfish came out. This first article is about questioning the ethics that the investigator used to gain his insight on the killer whales that he used for the movie. I feel like this is not a good creditable source because there are many bias issues at hand which tends to lean towards one side which in this article is Sea world. How I can to this decision is the facts at hand which Sea world is only showing their side at hand. To think one sided is very bias because they want the reader to think they are right. The article reveled to me that Sea World has something to hide when they can’t explain why they think that all the investigators information is wrong. With no substantial evidence and/ or qualified personnel. The second article is called 5 Big Claims ‘Blackfish’ Makes about SeaWorld. This article to me is very factual because it raises a lot of proven facts and sees both sides from sea world and blackfish. My opinion has changed to a more of a negative way after reading this article because Sea world has never shown any proof of why the claims in this article are false. The data reveals to me that Sea World has a lot to hide in the abusiveness of the orcas they have in captivity. I have yet to see any creditability in protecting the whales.
