Despite the Rev. Al Sharpton's call for rallies and President Obama's insistence he could have been Trayvon Martin, last weekend's protests met with mostly indifference — except in the media.
Mark Sappenfield, the deputy national news editor for The Christian Science Monitor, wrote a glowing account of how Mr. Sharpton had changed his political strategy.
"Criticized for much of his career as a race-baiter and a self-promoter, Mr. Sharpton has begun to carve out a more nuanced image for himself during his advocacy for the Martins," Mr. Sappenfield wrote.
