Faulty Causality Example?

Answer

Faulty causality (sometimes called Post Hoc) is a rhetorical fallacy in which the underlying assumption is that if one event happened before another, the first actually caused the second. This clearly isn't always the case. One real-life example of faulty causality is when newspapers mention that a terrorist has played violent video games, even though no link has been found between video games and becoming a terrorist.
