Robert Entman on Framing “To frame is to select some aspects of a perceived reality and make them more salient in a communicating text, in such a way as to promote a particular problem definition, causal interpretation, moral evaluation, and/ or treatment recommendation for the item mentioned.” (Entman, 1993, p. 52) Professor of Media & Public Affairs, George Washington University
