  • This paper explores framing used in transgender focused news stories linked by the Drudge Report over the years 2001-2014. It finds that equality and security frames are the most commonly used article frames. Additionally, we find that when the Drudge Report links to a story and it is positively toned, user comments tend to be negative.
