IT is encouraging to note that the media (print, broadcast and Internet) in Malaysia is giving more attention to disability issues. With the forthcoming International Day of Persons with Disabilities (Dec 3), it is a good time to assess the impact of such efforts, in particular the depiction of disability through images.
