I built this frame for you

Just one example of how the media can frame things with very little ease

There are countless examples of how the media can frame certain events to project a reaction from the viewer--a reaction that typically will lead to some kind of emotion or reactionary response.  If you're not privy to their ways, you are very susceptible.  Several instances of definitive framing from the mainstream media working to trigger a counter-reaction from the media user are evident this past week and we'll talk about as many of them as we have time for.  A few to consider: Trayvon Martin versus George Zimmerman and the drones are coming, the drones are coming!  Also we'll discuss the Hutaree Militia, Islamic extremism in France, and Kony 2012--just to name a few.  

Learn about the tactics that the gatekeepers use when reporting the "news" so you can unlock their control over your emotions!  Propaganda relies heavily on framing a story a certain way.  You've got to provide some kind of context for the story to mean something to the individual consuming the media, why not manipulate them to the interests of your media owners (the media cartel)?

Even deeper framing analysis 

If you want to get even deeper with critical media framing analysis, plan on attending the Teach-in with Greg Bishop in Rooms C/D at the Public Affairs Center on the campus of UIS Friday April 6th at 7p.  The event is organized by Occupy Springfield and Bishop will be presenting parts of his Communication Masters Thesis about mainstream and alternative media's first month of framing of the Occupy Wall St. movement.  

The Supremes take on the mandate

Three days of oral arguments--day one talked about if it's preemptive to even have arguments about a law that hasn't fully taken effect, day two got into the meat of the question about the individual mandate, forcing through threat of fine, someone to purchase health insurance, day three focused on if the entire law should be scrapped and congress should start over.  Sound off on whether you should be forced to purchase a product simply for living.  And for those worried about cost of uninsured--end the wars and there can be more assistance--but keep in mind, when the government subsidizes anything (housing, education, ... health care) the price goes up.  

News on the March

Here is a brief overview of some of the things we'll talk about during Saturday Session's News on the March: How much is a human life worth?  The CIA says they can spy on you through you refrigerator.  1984 may be getting re-made by Ron Howard and Sheppard Ferry--Mark Dice has the update (we hope to be joined by Mark on the air live next week).  The cost of NATO in money and rights.  The rise of autism, "One Government's Meat is Another Man's Felony Poison," MF Global mother-f███g lied, and so much more!
