In my Cracked article the writer has many sources that back up their claims throughout the article. A couple of the sources comes from online medical journals, yet, some of them come from other articles like abc NEWS and BBC News. The point they’re trying to get across is “all we know is that you should probably avoid wearing the following common clothing items that are physically damaging, or in some cases even trying to outright kill you. Unless the look really fits with that new jacket you just bought.”
The way they come across explaining their argument is by being a bit sarcastic but at the same time they use a concerned tone when explaining what they are trying to get across. When they use the different sources, the writer makes their topic believable. Therefore, just clicking on the sources makes me comfortable in knowing that they have a credible source and that their results are correctly stated.
