Good commentary

Quote:
It’s what he did not say.

Cosby has refused to publicly answer specific allegations. Instead, consumed in controversy, he has used his considerable resources to castigate, malign, and attempt to silence his accusers. Though his attorneys, he has issued a blanket denial that he ever engaged in sexual misconduct and he has even sued many of his accusers, including supermodel Beverly Johnson, for defamation of character.

Cosby could have admitted to knowing the women, he could have confessed to enjoying sex, engaging in infidelity and using his celebrity as a lure. “Would they have slept with me otherwise?” he could have said, “I don’t know. But what I do know, for sure, it that we were consenting adults.”

He hasn’t said anything close to that.

In fact, Cosby has avoided addressing the issue in public. He wanted us to believe that this was a private matter. He has paid attorneys and public relations experts to salvage his reputation, in hopes that his celebrity and charitable largess would save him from the firestorm of scrutiny—and from prison. The man who once reveled in the spotlight met the controversy with flashes of anger and resentment. At one point, he even challenged Black media to “stay neutral.”

It was my understanding that the woman decided not to press charges because Cosby was helping them with their acting careers. Then years later when their phone stops ringing for new jobs they cry out about what Cosby did to them they can get some more money out of the deal. They should have done something about it then not wait 20-30 years. Sounds like to me at least from the news reports the DA has a weak case against Cosby.

I just can't help but feel that this whole ordeal is just a great farce.

Okay.

So there is absolutely no chance that Cosby actually did these things? Really?
I don't know. But again unlike most of the public, I hardly believe anything a female says these days. Anytime I hear about such accusations like these, I almost automatically believe the so-called victim is lying.

Sounds like you have deep seeded issues. Do you really think all 30+ women are lying. Cosby admitted to drugging the women and having sex with them.

Which woman? Or are you saying this about multiple women?
And how did you arrive at your understanding?
