Camille Cosby has broken her silence to portray her husband Bill Cosby as…A monster, surely..?
… a victim of media misrepresentation, invoking Rolling Stone’s disputed story on rape at the University of Virginia.Ooooh…! Good for her!
… but in a statement released Monday afternoon to CBS Evening News she asked the provocative question: “Who is the victim?”How very dare she! Doesn’t she know that it’s always, always the accuser?
Even when there are so many discrepancies that the story falls apart the instant journalists start doing their jobs?
The public defiance of a wife standing by her husband in the wake of allegations of sexual impropriety is hardly unfamiliar.
But Camille Cosby’s attempt to overtly connect the news media’s coverage of the accusations against Bill Cosby to Rolling Stone’s <>troubled portrayal of an alleged gang rape on the campus of UVA is likely to raise eyebrows.Is it really?
Cosby said in her statement: “The story was heart-breaking, but ultimately appears to be proved to be untrue. Many of the media were quick to link that story to stories about my husband – until that story unwound.”Indeed so. It's almost as if there's no journalistic standards anymore, isn't it?
