MLK Day

What a wonderful man to celebrate, a man concerned with the score of life and not the score of a game.   How would a man so concerned and dedicated to the greater issues view the state of the press now?

Certainly, the press did not lead when it comes to civil rights.   But there were bold journalists like the late Gene Patterson.   As the obituary rightly states, "he made a mark."

Where are the bold journalists now?   How many news organizations are there truly dedicated to substantive reporting?  What would Dr. King think of a press that dedicates more time to reporting on the imaginary dead girlfriend of a football player than it does to climate change?  What would Dr. King's dream be today?
