Andrew King 11/18/13 CRM 110 Frame Analysis Paper In today’s media, there has been a growing issue that continues to be at the forefront of most media outlets. The issue is that of releasing classified government/military information to an organization/website known as “WikiLeaks”. Today, one can examine the current issues surrounding Edward Snowden and the NSA leaks. One can also date back to 2010 with the earlier military leaks surrounding Bradley Manning. This is portrayed in a PBS documentary titled “WikiSecrets”. The PBS documentary team decides to go to the origin of WikiLeaks and how U.S. Military information has been released to the public. The entire documentary is based upon a U.S military analyst, Bradley Manning and the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange. Though this may seem like a political issue, there is a criminal justice component to it. “Whistleblowing”, the act of exposing wrongdoing in an organization, can lead to violence in a domestic sense, but also across the world. It seems to me that this is a variation of the frame analysis of media violence. Though media violence is usually depicted through television, music and movies, this example combines television with newspapers and social media that create its affect. It is not your common media violence frame but due to the severity and popularity of this topic, it seemed interesting to use.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
