Improper tribute

Fox News this morning referred to today as "MLK Day."

No, Fox. "MLK Day" -- more accurately, Martin Luther King Jr. Day -- is in January and commemorates the birthday of the civil rights leader.

Today is April 4, the day King was murdered in Memphis in 1968. Calling today "MLK Day" -- especially on this, the 40th anniversary of his assassination -- makes it sound like a day of celebration.

But then, Fox has never been fair or balanced. So why should I expect them to be accurate ... let alone compassionate?
