Bill Cosby, in a short phone conversation with a black NY Post writer, finally spoke to the allegations of sexual assault against him. Kind of. “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,” he said, before adding that his people didn’t want him talking to the media.
Asked how his wife, Camille, was handling the entire situation, Cosby added: “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.”
What does that even mean? Nothing is what that means. Nothing. He’s not saying anything, and his remarks about the black media are both incensing and diverting. It’s a convenient way to avoid owning up to his transgressions.
And you know who is really know for its ability to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism? Page 6 of the New York Post, which is obviously known for upholding those stands of excellence in journalism.
