We have spoken in class a significant amount about association chains and by extension ‘starter packs’ and that helped a lot when I listened to the breakdown of FRAMING and its inevitability in the media world. the frame, in a nutshell, is what a story is about, its intended moral or overall message, that impacts the storyline of actual events.
