Framing theory and President Obama and Bernake
According to dictionary.com, framing is a term used in media studies, sociology and psychology, refers to the social construction of a social phenomenon by mass media sources or specific political or social movements or organizations. It is an inevitable process of selective influence over the individual's perception of the meanings attributed to words or phrases. A frame defines the packaging of an element of rhetoric in such a way as to encourage certain interpretations and to discourage others. The framing theory is used many times in the media. One of the more recent is the President Obama and Ben S. Bernake story.
