''DNC Chairman Dean visits conservative Kan.''
That's the headline for this AP story that is running all over the country, except in Kansas where the headline is "Dean urges political activism." Framing 101: "Dean criticized Bush's plan to create personal investment accounts as part of Social Security, saying: "I don't believe the way to fix Social Security is to have Wall Street run it so that it can be invested in Enron and Tyco and MCI." On another topic, Dean said that continued federal budget deficits are a problem because foreign investors, including the Chinese, hold much of the debt. "How would you like to have people you have a disagreement with holding the paper on your house?" he said." I'll leave it to you to give the grade.
