CNS Gives Alveda King Unchallenged Platform to Spread Bile
Topic:'s Fred Lucas devotes an entire Jan. 12 article to the rantings of anti-abortion activist Alveda King, who radically distorts Harry Reid's controversial comments about Barack Obama:

“I don’t care who said it,” she told “It doesn’t matter to me. It’s still wrong. It’s outrageous to say that we are going to let a man have a position because he is light-skinned and he uses a Negro dialect when it is convenient.
“I think that’s terrible,” she said. “What he’s really saying is, ‘Now we have a White House Negro.’


“I believe Sen. Reid’s apology was a good place to start,” King said. “If he really means what he’s saying, he needs to take eugenics and genocide abortion funding out of all legislation in Washington, D.C. A lip service apology is simply that. But if his actions mean, ‘I’m not a racist, I really want to help African Americans,’ he could start by making sure that no more of us are killed through legislation that is going to pay for genocide.”

Lucas permits no one to respond to King's outrageously offensive interpretations or counter her even more extreme (not to mention unsupported) claim that health care reform is "eugenics" and "genocide." This fits in with CNS' longtime pattern of uncritically presenting right-wing views while progressive views rarely stand unchallenged. It seems that CNS' mission statement to "fairly present all legitimate sides of a story" is no longer operative.

As CNS has done before, he also refers to her as "Dr. Alveda King" even though her doctorate is not earned -- it's honorary.
