The Washington Post and The Atlantic declined to explain Friday why they snubbed an explosive report on the late Martin Luther King Jr. from a renowned historian who discovered old FBI files making sexual allegations against the civil rights icon.

David Garrow brought his findings to WaPo and The Atlantic, as well as the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, but all three declined to publish his report. The FBI memos Garrow found detail disturbing allegations against King from the 1960s, most notably that he witnessed and encouraged a forcible rape by a Baptist minister on a female parishioner.
