One of the million reasons why the American people do not trust the legacy media. Their judgement is a dumpster fire. His daughter urges the media to consider King’s family before publishing a photo like that. It seems, however, the media doesn’t consider *anyone* before doing whatever they want. In this case, does the drive-by media *want* to cause civil unrest?

Via NY Daily News.

Newsweek tweeted, then quickly deleted an image of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in an open casket Monday with a link to an article about notable historical anniversaries in 2018.

King’s daughter, Bernice King, was among the scores of twitter users who were outraged by its use of the image.

“Why, @Newsweek? Wow,” she wrote, referring to the since deleted post.

Newsweek removed the tweet and issued an apology to the King family.

“Earlier this afternoon we published an opinion piece with an insensitive image of Martin Luther King Jr. We sincerely apologize to the King family for this egregious error,” the news outlet said on Twitter.

Bernice King went live on social media Monday afternoon to discuss the incident.

“Today I saw where Newsweek published this insensitive image of my father,” she said.

She urged the media to consider King’s family before sharing images of the civil rights activist, particularly in anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the leader’s assassination.
