*Well look who’s speaking out on his messy situation.
No, he didn’t exactly say a lot, but at least Bill Cosby said something to a member of the press. And what he said was rather interesting.
Cosby was reached at his home in Massachusetts by a reporter from the NY Post, Stacy Brown. However, it should come as no surprise that he’s still refusing to speak about the rape and sex abuse allegations from an ever-growing list of women that now includes supermodel Beverly Johnson.
But here’s what he did say … and it was directed to African America media. Cosby says when it comes to him, black press 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.
(It should be noted that Stacy Brown also writes for black news outlets as well.)
Cosby said his advisors have advised not to talk to reporters about the ongoing allegations. More than two dozen women have publicly claimed that he drugged and raped them.
Reporter Brown said Cosby sounded upbeat on the phone, but said he couldn’t address the specific allegations.
However, when asked how his wife, Camille Cosby, he relayed that she 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.”
Then Cosby cut off the conversation. “They don’t want me talking to the media,” he said.
