Abstract: Framing has been termed a "fractured paradigm" by Robert Entman. Frames as media-text features are prime examples of coding complexity since frames may be regarded as factual media content or a loose extracted collection of data snippets docking at a specific theme or event. The potential of the concept for analyzing power relations within political communication is enormous and would benefit from further guiding information when working with CAQDAS. This paper seeks to provide an integral empirical perspective, and it includes suggestions for code families, coding rules, and query examples within ATLAS.ti. Furthermore, it discusses issues like frame types, frame setting, and frame sending. At its core, the paper joins text-based analysis with probing for the relevant actors' view via guideline interviews. By doing so, it connects actor and process-oriented aspects of frame analysis, following one prevailing approach on framing in communication science. It also advises a flexible theoretical docking, but opts for a concise network perspective on actor-document relations. The result of the paper is not quite an empirical blueprint but a collection of helpful yet optional procedures for frame analysis.
