On the other hand, framing requires proper filtering decisions to ensure adequate data presentation to the audience. Otherwise, excessive filtering of information impacts the critical message. It will influence the perspective of the audience because the crucial context for perceiving values will be hidden. Also, essential parts of the data, such as quantitate values, can be misinterpreted entirely filtered. Conversely, failure to filter any content will affect the data (Kirk, 2016). The most salient discoveries can be missed in the visualization. Although angle and focus are essential perspectives of editorial thinking, framing creates a complete information structure. Without the frame, it can be challenging for the audience to understand the information conveyed.
