The Lineup: MLK and Inauguration Day
The Lineup collects the media stories, big and small, that are on our radar each day.
On a day like today, when we're following what's happening live in D.C., there's not much else you want to look at. But the last three days haven't been entirely without news. We've scratched together a bit of it here.

Quote of the day...
Recently, two different people told me on the same day that they were going to launch a comments section based on annotations — where readers comment on individual sentences or paragraphs or arguments, rather than a story or post as a whole. The promise here is twofold: it helps the conversation stay on topic, and it also raises the possibility of really improving the original post, keeping it updated and accurate, all through crowdsourced technology.

I haven't watched an inauguration on TV since 1997. Was in DC in 2001/05/09. I'm struck by how well-produced it is -- SO many camera angles.— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) January 21, 2013
