    Yup. Meanwhile Bill Clinton, who settled a similar suit for over $800,000, and still has credible accusations withstanding, disbarred & impeached over the cover-up, is given pretty good treatment by the media.

    And I saved 15% on my car insurance with Geico.

    Now what I find particularly strange is that this man settled a case back in 2005 in which 13 other women signed onto in defense of what the case originator said. Yet Hollywood, tv , etc, didn't start pulling stuff then?

    Yes, everybody knows that.

    But did you know that there's a bias in the media towards how it reports the news?

    Money insulated Cosby the way that power insulated Clinton. They are both serial rapists.

    Yep. Some of the media is biased towards the left. Some of the media is biased towards the right.

    It would be nice to get someone who just reports what is happening w/o the slants.

    I'm glad you have all the facts at hand.

    Have you ever heard that fans have been know to initiate lawsuits against extremely wealthy well known individuals?

    I say let the actual facts come out first.

    How many women have to say that he gave them some wine and the next thing they remember is waking up knowing they had been sexually violated before people accept that he probably raped these women?

    He was accused by 12 women in 2004 of having assaulted them.
    He cheated on his wife several times and had a child with another woman.

    He settled one law suit in 2005.

    He just doesn't sound like someone I would leave my daughter around. I frankly believe the women. I tend to not trust any one who has cheated on their spouse.

    OK. What's happening is Cosby's being yanked from appearances, and Clinton's makin' bank on his.

    Your key word "Tend"

    My Key word - Facts

    Again, I am not defending Bill Crosby - I'm just saying let all the FACTS come out.

    Raven-Symone, who rose to fame playing Bill Cosby's step-granddaughter on "The Cosby Show," is speaking out against rumors that the comedian sexually assaulted her.

    The actress took to social media on Wednesday to slam the speculation -- which apparently stemmed from a story on a parody website that claimed she was a victim of Cosby's after the hit show ended.

    "I was NOT taking advantage of by Mr. Cosby when I was on the Cosby Show! I was practically a baby on that show and this is truly a disgusting rumor that I want no part of!" she wrote on Instagram. "Everyone on that show treated me with nothing but kindness. Now keep me out of this!

    What FACTS need to come out? They are saying he raped them. His attorneys are saying he won't dignify it with a response.

    He admitted to fathering a child with someone other than his wife.
    He settled a similar assault case already. Who settles if they haven't done anything?

    Janice Dickinson, who isn't the world's greatest character witness, got quite graphic.

    What other FACTS do you think we should be expecting to hear?

    Comparing Cosby to Clinton is cringeworthy. Nice read from Deadspin here though.

    http://theconcourse.deadspin.com/ac...y-bullies-reporter-explains-ho-1661111473/all

    Also, a good write up from Jason Parham here.

    http://gawker.com/the-undoing-of-bill-cosby-1660641408

    The video is a nice insight into why people like him are successful at continuing their behavior. Rapists seem to count on people's disbelief of the victim even in Cosby's case when he has victim's spanning decades going back to 1969.

    [The video is in the first link]

    Why cringeworthy ? Clinton settled for over $800,000, and the accusations have merit.

    Are you talking about Juanita Broaddrick? If so, you are correct. I forgot about that one.

    Yeah. It was pretty ugly.

    Anyway, historically, type-A personalities tend to be womanizers. Not excusing it.

    That's it exactly. In fact, many of the reports from the women coming forward about Cosby stemmed from the old trope of "I can make you a star."

    Clinton used his political power for his sexual escapades in similar fashion.

    And Sterling lost the Clippers because of a racial slur during a private conversation that many say was pillow talk.

    I guess if you are the POTUS, you get a bathroom, hallway pass. Others get the boot.

    I really enjoy the clean, laid back humor of Bill Cosby, especially his rendition of the story of Noah!

    If he did what he is accused of doing, so be it! He deserves to be held accountable, like the priests who molested children for decades.

    But, once again, the only people not subject to the laws of the land seem to be those hiding in the Oval Office! How hypocritical is this?

    What you say is not really true. All the media is slanted for the Democrats except a couple of networks who try to present fair news.

    American journalism is yellow.
