Journalists apologize

25 Nov, 2014

Journalists who have reported about Cosby over the past 40 year apologize for failing to follow up on sexual abuse allegations. Whitaker, his official biographer, responds to a New York Times column criticizing him and other journalists:

I was wrong to not deal with the sexual assault charges against Cosby and pursue them more aggressively.

A New York Post columnist, Richard Johnson, says the National Enquirer ran a story about Cosby’s daughter Erinn’s battles with drugs and alcohol, that Cosby himself gave to the paper in 1989 in exchange for killing a story about Cosby’s alleged infidelity with showgirls.
