One Story, Three Ways: Martin Luther King, Jr.

It's the fortieth anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. and in the midst of a presidential campaign recently focused on race issues, the media seems to be giving extra coverage to the reason for the day off today. Here's a sample of how they're selling the story:

  • The New York Times focuses on the campaign slant.



  • Fox News seizes the opportunity to give a nod to the commander in chief.



  • CNN points toward the need to recognize MLK Jr. as more than one line in a speech.

  • How will you choose to reflect on the day? What does Martin Luther King, Jr.'s legacy mean to you? Do you think it's going to feature prominently at the South Carolina democratic debate tonight?
