I say, Cosby's reputation has taken a dive since this Topic first appeared, I say

tell me about it. troubling he could get away with that level of assault for so long. Bobcat said everyone in the comedy biz knew for years and years and they would tell jokes about it

The pinhed doesn't wish to take anything away from The Court of Public Opinion (which always does a heckuva job), but isn't this kind of thing supposed to be taken up a court of law? I mean, technically anyway? scratch

no one said nothing about The Court of Public Opinion.  The opinions I've paid attention to are showbiz professionals who have known Cosby, and the dozens of women not seeking money, telling the same story about Cosby.  It doesn't prove anything, but it is suspicious.  And if you were sexually assaulted years ago,  a court of law isn't going to do much.  

A handful of women, once could dismiss as kooks or fame-grabbers ... but this large number ( and many many more with lesser stories of verbal harassment and more minor groping which points to a pattern of behavior), with corroborated stories, and many with established reputations as non-kooks, who were silent because they were hesitant about going up against AMERICA'S FAVOURITE AND MOST POWERFUL DAD ... but if you want to wait for a court of law to tell you what to think, go ahead,  those things are fallible too btw

I seem to remember you citing Woody Allen's single accuser as newsworthy and post-worthy ... I guess you're less impressed by Cosby's dozens of accusers

Somebody sure as heck did--ME.

#1 -- I think you are remembering somebody else.

#2 -- The pinhed is saying that the accusations are felonies. Felonies aren't just "newsworthy" or "postworthy."

OK, you're probably right that the courts would be unlikely to act. So instead we get this--judge Yakima evaluating the evidence and the reliability of the witnesses:

And since the courts are fallible, judge Yakima's judgment (based on what reporters choose to put out) is as good as any, I reckon. Rolling Eyes

The pinhed is not taking Cosby's side here, btw.

Seems to me that if Cosby is righteous--he should be taking the accusers to court for slander. But Bill isn't doing that--evidently he's not too keen on getting his day in court. Suspect

So what does this  Suspect mean? It means the pinhed, too, has been sucked into the Court of Public Opinion. Mad

There's only one kind of people the pinhed can't stand--the male kind.
