A media frame is a broad organising theme for selecting, emphasising, and linking the elements of a story such as the scenes, the characters, their actions, and supporting documentation (Bennet cited in 2002: 42 cited in Boykoff 2008). In practice a frame is a conceptual lens that brings certain aspects of reality into sharper focus (emphasising a particular way to understand an issue) while relegating others to the background.
