CNS Lets Alveda King Falsely Call Herself 'Dr." Again
Topic: CNSNews.com

CNSNews.com published a Jan. 15 column by Alveda King in which she is allowed to refer to herself as "Dr."

As we've pointed out previously when CNS has done this, and as others have detailed, King's doctorate, from Saint Anselm College, is honorary, not earned.

It's standard journalism practice to use the "Dr." title only for those with medical degrees, and most certainly not for honorary degrees. But then, between the mysteriously disappearing false articles and its creeping NewsBusters-ism, journalism doesn't seem to be a high priority these days.
