CNSNews.com loves to privilege Alveda King with the "Dr." title, even though her doctorate is honorary (from Saint Anselm College) and not earned. It did so again twice this past week.
A March 9 CNS article by Penny Starr puts "Dr. Alveda King" right in the headline, and Starr herself gives her the "Dr." title in the article. There's also a photo of King with the grating caption "Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr."
A March 13 column by King carries the "Dr. Alveda King" byline, plus a bio tag at the end stating "Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."
Actually, unlike Alveda King, Martin Luther King Jr. earned his doctorate, from Boston University.
If CNS had any journalistic integrity, it would reject Alveda King's blatantly dishonest efforts to inflate her credentials to portray herself as an equal of her uncle. But then, CNS' right-wing agenda has little to do with journalistic integrity.
