Bill Cosby Speaks Out, Says Black Media Should Stay ‘Neutral’
Rucuss staffDecember 14, 2014
Bill Cosby broke his silence to lecture the media on remaining “neutral.”
The 77-year old also made it clear that his wife, Camille, is standing by him. Cosby spoke to The New York Post by phone and declined to comment about the rape and sex abuse allegations from close to two dozen women. But he did have a message for the African-American media.
Cosby wants the outlets to remain impartial. Page Six reports:
Reached at his Massachusetts home, the star declined to address the rape and sex abuse allegations from an ever-growing list of women that now includes supermodel Beverly Johnson.
Instead, Cosby, 77, said that the African-American media should be impartial.
“Let me say this. I only expect the black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism and when you do that you have to go in with a neutral mind,” Cosby said.
Cosby sounded upbeat on the phone, but said he couldn’t address the specific allegations.
He did, however, wax poetic when asked how his wife of more than a half-century, Camille Cosby, was holding up under the strain of the allegations.
“Love and the strength of womanhood,” he said. “Let me say it again, love and the strength of womanhood. And, you could reverse it, the strength of womanhood and love.”
Allegations against Cosby go back to the 1960s. His lawyer Marty Singer said Cosby denies all allegations. Accusers include supermodel Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson.
