A REVIEW OF CONTEMPORARY MEDIA

 

 

Notes

1. Jeff Johnson, “Schindler Family Releases Video of Daughter,”
http://www.cnsnews.com/Culture/
Archive/200310/CUL20031014c.html

2. This analysis is based on the website I accessed as late as April 2005, when the videos were still widely in circulation.  As Janet Staiger notes in her introduction and Janet Walker notes in her postscript, this version of the site is no longer available on the web.

3. William Saletan, “Terri Schiavo’s persistent legislative state,” Slate, March 21, 2005,
http://slate.msn.com/id/2115123.

4. http://www.blogsforterri.com/video.php

5. [link no longer active 1/6/06] Hyscience:  The Video Michael Schiavo Doesn’t Want You To See,
http://hyscience.typepad.com/hyscience/
2005/02/the_video_micha.html

6. [link no longer active 1/6/06] Hyscience:  The Video Michael Schiavo Doesn’t Want You To See,
 http://hyscience.typepad.com/hyscience/
2005/02/the_video_micha.html

7. “Terri Schiavo:  Cognitively Able,”
 http://www.propertyrightsresearch.org/
2004/articles/terri_schiavo3.htm

8. [link no longer active 1/6/06] Stephen Nohlgren, “Schiavo tapes:  snippets, then not much,” St. Petersburg Times online, November 10, 2003,
 http://www.sptimes.com/2003/11/10/
Tampabay/Schiavo_tapes_snippe.shtml

9. Laura Hershey, “Killed by Prejudice,” The Nation, posted online April 14, 2005,
 http://www.thenation.com/
doc.mhtml?i=20050502&s=hershey

Acknowledging her multiple identities as disabled person, lesbian feminist, and secular thinker, Hershey notes that she and her partner “squirmed” as certain politicians defended Schiavo’s rights:  “If either of us were incapacitated, these right-wingers might argue to keep us alive; but they would oppose our right to stay by each other’s bedsides.”  Yet she is also critical of those on the left who “have trouble embracing the rights of people with severe disabilities” and “seem to lose sight of the core value of human equality.”

10. Editorial, “Schiavo as Prologue,” The Nation, April 18, 2005, p. 3.

11. Neither this video nor the media archive was available on the website as of August 2005, perhaps signaling the Schindler family’s distancing itself from such appropriations, or perhaps merely indicating a new phase in the struggle.
