Cosby refuses to answer questions regarding the accusations of sexual assault that have surfaced recently during an interview with Scott Simon of NPR. Simon:
This question gives me no pleasure, Mr. Cosby, but there have been serious allegations raised about you in recent days. You’re shaking your head no. I’m in the news business. I have to ask the question. Do you have any response to those charges? Shaking your head no. There are people who love you who might like to hear from you about this. I want to give you the chance.
