Opinions vary about Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s interview Monday night with Anderson Cooper on CNN. Variety said he “melted down.” Business Insider called it a train wreck. The Wire simply said it was “a poor showing, public relations-wise.”
Sterling, who was banned from the NBA on April 30 over racist statements he made in a phone call to his girlfriend, started with an apology, asking for forgiveness. “I’m wrong. I caused the problem. I don’t know how to correct it,” he said.
Not a bad start. But then things started to go sour.
