In fact, rhetoric is born as a legal phenomenon with a strong political component in Syracuse in the 5th century B.C., when a democratic rebellion overthrew the tyrants Gelon and Hieron, who had seized a great deal of property to hand it over to their mercenaries.
Corax and his pupil Tisias taught rhetoric to anyone who needed to become involved in these trials.
Their rhetoric was based on practical precepts that were rather different from the philosophical idea of searching for truth that would be developed by the Sophists, since the judges were not interested in abstract truths but rather accuracy, the decisions valid for each trial.

 Washington Speechwriters Roundtable :: Speechwriting: The Tracks of the Ghost by ED VILADE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Corax of Syracuse was considered the “father” of rhetoric because he was the first to write speeches for others, and the first to record rules for writing and giving speeches, according to classical sources.
It is preferable to a contemporary rhetorician to think that Corax saw a dollar in the plight of the disenfranchised Sicilians, and became the first known professional speechwriter.
Although Corax may have been the first of many to write for other speakers, the necessity for the Citizen Orator to maintain the impression that he wrote his own material makes information on the speechwriting professional of the period a little sketchy.

Rhetoric is believed to have originated as far back as the fifth century B.C. with Corax of Syracuse.
Since the law at the time required that citizens speak for themselves in court, rather than have attorneys, Corax wrote a treatise called the "Art of Rhetoric" which helped instruct people in arguing and persuasion.
Another prominent figure in the development of rhetoric is Tisias, a pupil of Corax.

While there are several general writings that refer to a general understanding of communication to be found in the ancient world, scholars agree that the formal study of communication began with the work of Corax of Syracuse in the fifth century B.C. (Golden, Berquist, and Coleman, 1978; Harper, 1980; McCroskey, 1978).
In 465 B.C., the citizens of Syracuse, on the Island of Sicily, overthrew a cruel dictator who had seized all land and property.
Corax saw that many people were losing their cases because they were not able to communicate effectively in the courtroom setting.

 Heidi Cappadona -- Rhetoric, the Ancient Political Alternative to Truth and Logic
It's the art of using language in such a way as to produce a desired impression upon the emotions of the hearer when truth has little or nothing to do with it.
History teaches us that the founder of Rhetoric as an art was Corax of Syracuse in 466 B.C. when a democracy was founded there.
The Encyclopedia Britannica 11th edition tells us, "[S]peakers incapable of showing even the ghost of an argument have sometimes been the most successful in carrying great audiences along with them." When Aristotle was asked how Rhetoric was useful, he replied, "first of all, because truth and justice are naturally stronger than their opposites."

On those rare occasions throughout history when a female rhetorician manages to establish a unique voice for women’s concerns amidst the din of dominant discourse, her male-oriented audience is conditioned to respond with: "It's the same old whine in a brand new babble.”
The discipline of rhetoric is thought to have originated in the 5th century B.C. with Corax of Syracuse, when the Sicilian wrote “The Art of Rhetoric.” There’s no mistaking the manual’s masculine tone when one considers the materialistic motive for the treatise: the fight over male property rights.
