Logical Fallacies / Argument From Repetition

Argument from Repetition

Argument from repetition refers to someone repeating a statement often in the hopes that the listener will begin to accept it as truth, instead of providing evidence.

Example of Argument from Repetition

Hurtlocker deserves an Oscar. Other films have potential, but they do not deserve an Oscar like Hurtlocker does. Out of all the films up for an Oscar, Hurtlocker should be award one because it is the best film nominated and deserves an Oscar.
