Logical Fallacies / Bandwagon


The fallacy of bandwagon says, 'But everyone is doing it.' This fallacy appeal to the popularity of something as a means of validating it.

Example of Bandwagon

A recent study shows 8 out of 10 doctors say that acupuncture is an effective therapy, therefore it must be since 8 out of 10 doctors can't be wrong!

This is a common fallacy.
