So a couple of radio announcers in Minneapolis thinks NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson faked AIDS.
According to the story found here, Chris Baker and Langdon Perry of KTLK, said Johnson faked having the disease. They never said why they thought that, or if they were trying to be funny (it wasn’t), but they were way over the top.
I understand talk radio is difficult, and you’re going to screw up every once in a while. But this isn’t arguing with someone because you’re having a bad day, or you’re confusing two people. You’re straight out making a ridiculous statement.
And it makes you look like a buffoon.
Magic, who has HIV, not AIDS, said he doesn’t want the talk show hosts fired. He believes Baker and Perry should educate the audience. I wonder how that’s going to go? Probably not too well.
