Don Lemon Destroys Donald Sterling’s Lawyer: He’s an ‘8-Track Tape in an iTunes Era’

CNN anchor Don Lemon tore into LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling and his lawyer, Max Blecher, on Thursday over comments made on that network. “This guy is an 8-track tape in an iTunes era,” Lemon said of Blecher. He proceeded to list the number of ways in which Sterling’s attorney was not helping his case.

The CNN anchor ripped into Blecher for calling it “the United Negro Fund” rather than “the United Negro College Fund.”

He added that Sterling is not “a member in good standing” of the NBA because he sued them in the past over a dispute about his team’s location.

“You should not get on television saying that Donald Sterling is not a racist and we should not believe our own ears, because said as much in an interview with Anderson Cooper,” Lemon insisted.

Lemon concluded by tearing into Blecher’s objection to Sterling being recorded without his knowledge. Lemon insisted that the NBA does not care about how the recordings became public but they do care about those recordings are reflecting negatively on the league’s image.

“If you want to be vindicated, go back and look at the tapes,” Lemon concluded. “Go back and look at what you said beyond the tape.”
