Framing

This link from WSJ.com is a prime example of issue framing. An Israeli news cast takes a call from a Palestinian man who mourns the loss of his three daughters. Though not much is said by the news team, the audience is made to feel sympathetic towards the helpless father, humanizing the violence of the last month.
