A Threatening Space? Stigmatization and the Framing of Autism in the News Media

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This present study advances current scholarship about portrayals of autism in a key outlet of public information—news media—considering ways in which these outlets frame and stigmatize the diagnosis. The findings here suggest that the news media may be a threatening space for autism, particularly through the perpetuation of stigmatic cues in over two thirds of news coverage of autism, coupled with the selection of certain news frames. Contributions and future research are discussed.
