Howard Kurtz thinks the real story of Coretta Scott King's funeral isn't that people stood up for what she'd believed in during her life or that little people took the chance to stand up to power.

No, what the media should have been covering was the importance of the story that some people at her funeral didn't like Bush.

To illustrate what an important story this is, he mentions that a lot of the major press talked mostly about how her funeral described her life-long work on civil rights issues but only "conservative" outlets (blogs are featured) are "furious" at the "Bush-bashing."

And then he wanders off into a lot of different tangents about what other people are writing about these days, from Abramoff to Iraq. Most pointless column I ever read.
