The Disabled: Media's Monster.
Bogdan, Robert; And Others
Social Policy, v13 n2 p32-35 Fall 1982
From the early nineteenth century to the present, horror, gangster, and adventure films, television, the comics, and newspapers have shown physical and mental disabilities to connote murder, violence, and danger. Such false portrayals have promoted negative public attitudes toward people with disabilities. (Author/MJL)
