Bill Cosby has appealed to the media to be ‘neutral’ and ‘uphold the standards of journalism’ while reporting on the numerous rape accusations laid against him by scores of women.
In a brief phone interview with Page Six, the embattled comedian said, ‘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.’
In other words, Cosby doubts the white media will ever report on the alleged sexual abuse allegations without being biased.
Meanwhile, when asked about how his wife of over 50 years Camille is coping under the strain of the allegations, the ‘upbeat’ Cosby replied, ‘Love and the strength of womanhood. Let me say it again, love and the strength of womanhood. And, you could reverse it, the strength of womanhood and love.’
That said, he then reportedly ended the call, saying, ‘They don’t want me talking to the media.’
This will be the second time Cosby has directly responded to the allegations. Last month, he told Florida Today that people should ‘fact check’ and not ‘answer to innuendos.’
