The above is most often employed by the mass media, such as television and radio which may result in impairement of vision. P L A T O in Gorgias argues, that rhetoric means pandering to the prejudices of the audience and flattering it with a standard repertoire of tricks.The standard explanation for Plato's hostility to rhetoric is that he saw it as an integral part of the political system that condemned Socrates to death; it was a technique as corrupt as the society that had produced it, and a perversion of justice and integrity.
