The front page of the English-language Shanghai Daily has a headline about a bird-flu outbreak somewhere. I get e-mails from random staff at my school every few days about how to avoid catching bird-flu (today: "don't go to affected areas; tell your ayi not to go to infected areas"). And yet there is not a single mention of the virus anywhere in tonight's Chinese-language Xinmin Wanbao.

I'm totally in the dark as to how much weight to apply to each of these frames in order to have a useful picture of the real situation.
