Inclusion London report: ‘Bad News for Disabled People’

Bad News for Disabled People was published in October 2011. It is a study of changes in the way the media are reporting disability and how it has impacted on public attitudes towards disabled people.

The study found a significant increase in the reporting of disability in the period covered, but a reduction in the proportion of articles which describe disabled people in sympathetic and deserving terms, and an increase in articles focusing on disability benefit and fraud.
