A St. Louis TV reporter recently referred to the civil rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., as “Martin Luther Coon Jr.,”  which may have went under the radar for some. After this was brought to the attention of the station by a viewer, Kevin Steincross, of KTVI, did issue an apology and as a result will not be fired or face additional disciplinary actions.

Not the same can be said for Jereme Kappell of WHEC in New York, who was fired from his position as a meteorologist for literally doing the same thing.

What are your thoughts on this St. Louis?
