Linguistics; political language; framing and misframing...
You'll find an article on misframing -- titled "Crucial Issues Not Addressed in the Immigration Debate: Why Deep Framing Matters," by George Lakoff and Sam Ferguson -- at http://www.rockridgeinstitute.org/research/lakoff/imm-response .
"Our job at Rockridge is to make the public conscious of the framing in political discourse -- including their own framing. Marc Cooper is a good example of what goes wrong when you engage in framing but are not aware of what you are doing. Cooper repeatedly misframes framing 'as a matter of simple wordplay' (in The Atlantic Monthly, March 15, 2005). "
