RODELO, Frida V.  and  MUNIZ, Carlos. Use of cluster analysis to detect news frames in the media coverage of the Merida Initiative. Comun. soc [online]. 2016, n.27, pp.53-77. ISSN 0188-252X.

It has been stressed the need for framing studies to opt for frame identification methods that provide reliable and valid results. In this article, a cluster analysis is used to identify issue-specific frames in the news articles about the Merida Initiative, an international cooperation agreement that received wide media coverage for its implications both for the Mexican security policy and the struggle against drug trafficking.

Keywords : Cluster analysis; news frames; framing; content analysis; war on drugs; Merida Initiative.
