Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling may be a lot of things, probably negative to most people, but first and foremost he is a citizen of the United States. If a person is engaged in an intimate or personal conversation, he would presume that it is one of a private nature. I guess the liberal media doesn't respect First Amendment rights! They have taken to this story like lions to the Christians! The left wing often explains freedom of speech as "protection of words that most find abhorrent"; where are they on this one? It looks like George Orwell was right, the "thought police" are coming for you!
