It seems as if the entertainment site TMZ, which has been breaking news left and right, scooped Anderson Cooper's Tuesday-night interview with NBA legend Magic Johnson regarding the continuing fallout from racist statements made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
In a telephone interview earlier Tuesday with the gossip conglomerate, Johnson slammed Sterling for bringing him into the mess and saying things without getting his facts straight – especially regarding Johnson's work in the black community and his health status.
"It's very disturbing," says Johnson, who can be heard sighing heavily over the phone. "When you come on (television), No. 1, you should have your facts straight. I don't have AIDS. I have HIV;been living with HIV for 22 years."
