There's a tiny bit of difference between a man who was responsible for murdering millions of people and a guy that didn't murder anyone.

Which means that whoever had the complaint, if it was real, could have made the complaint 29 years ago.

So somebody made a bad choice thinking that if she went along with it, she'd end up a star, didn't work out, it's been festering for 29 years and now, what? She's looking for money? Her 15 minutes on the talk shows?

If you want to understand this better, read the article. She doesn't want money.

This has actually been well known for a long time, and not discussed by the media for the same reasons they don't discuss Clinton's rape victims.

Bowman is not the only one, either. A year or so ago I read about multiple accounts of his drugging women.

Exactly. People get settlements to keep quite. There's no settlement after going to the media and letting the cat out of the bag. I believe she truly is upset about him being cast again in a father figure role. I'll bet she hopes the network drops the show or Cosby. At the very least, other people are forewarned and can be vigilant around him on and off the set.

He is like a lot of men with power. He used this to abuse and manipulate women. Young women are very vulnerable and this sort of thing happens all the time.

The opposite is also true. Just because she says it happened doesn't mean it did. Interesting how people always believe allegations over denials. Let's have actual proof before we judge. I'm not on his side nor hers. If true, he's a scumbag, if not.... .

The phrase "meant to have" does not fit with your conclusion.

My favorite part of the article........

Every time Barbara boarded a plane, at Cosby's request, she would 'pray and pray' on the way to meeting him that this time it wouldn't happen again.
OK, so stop going.

Yet since when do powerful men with millions of dollars need to rape anyone? In an industry where there are countless women who would gladly do whatever he wanted, a man like him needs to drug and rape a woman just for the good of her career? Why do I not believe this?

Someone said she isn't interested in the money. Well whatever she's interested in, she clearly didn't want it that bad if it's taken all these years.
