Framing the President

Tonight, President Bush is going to go on television to try and convince us that the war in Iraq always has been, and still is, a really good idea. Expect lots of Orwellian double-speak (maybe you all can use the rules from this game to make it bearable)... luckily, Jeffrey Feldman over at the Frameshop is ready for it: he is preparing a series of for articles today to help us all dissect and break down what's really going on, and to create a new narrative to surpass the lies. Highly recommended reading! Be sure to also check out the local Frameshop sites, where you can discuss the pros and cons of framing issues in your area.
