Bob Costas Slams NBC For Insisting Donald Sterling Scandal Created Discussion On Race: ‘A Bunch Of Politically Correct BS’

July 6, 2014 - 9:02 AM

Bob Costas, liberal sportscaster for NBC, had some harsh words for his own network’s handling of the Donald Sterling controversy earlier this year. Costas appeared on MSNBC’s Up w/ Steve Kornacki on Saturday, July 5 and mocked the idea that there was widespread debate over the appropriateness of Sterling’s racist comments. The NBC sports anchor argued that “when people say, well, this is an opportunity to open up a dialogue on race. Here is where I think some people who work in this building ought to step up and say you know what, that's a bunch of politically correct BS.” Video cross-posted here at NewsBusters.
