Ben Mattlin of Adventures in Modern Life is looking for examples of media images of disability:
I’m looking for suggestions. Been working on a new piece for NPR about media images of disability–specifically, the way certain soft-news and reality TV programs portray people with disabilities as scientific oddities or “amazing but true” objects of medical curiosity–and I could really use your help.
You see, the examples I originally came up with were all from the Discovery Health channel, which ceased broadcasting at the end of the year. So I need new examples.
If you encounter any, please e-mail me pronto. The best way to reach me is at email@example.com.
