CNN's Rachel Nichols made headlines today when she grilled NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Today's news conference marked Goodell's first public comments in a week. Just after he promised to get the league's "house in order," more troubling news broke on the Ray Rice case. A source confirmed to CNN that Ravens' security spoke to Atlantic City Police and learned of the video from inside a casino elevator hours after the incident occurred. Anderson spoke with Rachel, along with Sports Illustrated's Robert Klemko and domestic violence survivor Leslie Morgan Steiner.
Seven NFL players have been in the headlines recently for abuse or alleged abuse. Five of them have been benched or cut, one is just on the practice squad, but one is set to take the field to play this Sunday. That player is San Francisco 49er Ray McDonald who is accused of assaulting his pregnant fiancé. Sports Illustrated's Peter King spoke to Anderson about why a suspension is not necessarily the right move in the case.
Rachel Nichols spoke exclusively with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. They discussed Donald Sterling's AC360 interview and his attacks on Magic Johnson.
When Shelly Sterling started lining up buyers for the L.A. Clippers, it may have seemed, at least for a minute, that Donald Sterling was ready to walk away from the NBA. In fact, he cleared the way in a letter to the NBA confirming that he authorized his wife to negotiate the sale of the team. But now, his lawyer tells ESPN that Donald Sterling "is going to fight to the bloody end," and "he disavows anything" Shelly is doing to sell the team. So what's next for the Clippers? Anderson spoke with CNN legal analysts Sunny Hostin and Jeffrey Toobin along with Rachel Nichols, host of CNN's Unguarded.
In a news conference Tuesday, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said the league is "doing the right thing" by forcing out LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling. This came only one day after the NBA outlined their charges against Sterling and on the same day Sterling's lawyer demanded three months to respond. "The proceedings and the processes set out in our constitution is something they signed on for when they became owners in the league," said Silver. The commissioner expressed confidence in the NBA's ability to force Sterling into selling the franchise, which he has owned since 1981.
It was just a week ago that Donald Sterling's taped remarks about African Americans became public. For the first time today, the L.A. Clippers owner addressed the controversy publicly. He’s responding to V. Stiviano, the woman who recorded the tape of their private conversation. In an interview with DuJour magazine Sterling says, "I wish I had just paid her off." Brian Todd has the latest on the fallout.
Anderson discussed these latest developments with CNN Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, Rachel Nichols, host of CNN's Unguarded, and Legal Analyst Sunny Hostin.
Barely four days after tape of his racist rant hit the Internet, L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling is now facing a lifetime ban from the NBA and a $2.5 million fine. Almost as soon as Commissioner Adam Silver made the announcement, some of the biggest names in basketball voiced their support for the move. Rachel Nichols has the latest.
NBC's Christin Cooper is getting lambasted after her post-race interview with U.S. skier Bode Miller. Cooper repeatedly asked Miller about the death of his brother, which eventually led to him breaking down in tears in front of the cameras. Bode Miller spoke with Rachel Nichols, host of CNN's 'Unguarded.'
With just days to go before the Super Bowl, news broke today that the NFL is fining Richard Sherman nearly $8,000 for his actions at the end of the NFC Championship Game. But it's the finish of that game that has everyone talking. Rachel Nichols spoke to Richard Sherman and told John Berman "it's fascinating to watch the wave of reaction to Richard Sherman."
