Journalists apologize


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.

Whitaker says he will address recent developments at the appropriate time.
