    Holyoke, Mass., Mayor Alex Morse (D) said Sunday he will remain in his congressional primary race against Rep. Richard E. Neal (D-Mass.) amid a University of Massachusetts investigation into allegations that Morse had sexual relationships with students while teaching at University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Morse denied ever using his position of power as mayor or as a lecturer to take advantage of students. “I want to be very clear about this. I have never, in my entire life, had a non-consensual sexual encounter with anyone. I have never used my position of power as Mayor and UMass lecturer for romantic or...

    CNN is launching a "new and expanded race team" in an effort to "ensure race coverage is a permanent part of our journalism," according to a statement from network president Jeff Zucker, who is best known for signing Donald Trump to host The Apprentice on NBC. CNN viewers might be surprised to learn that race was not already a "permanent part" of the network's opinion-based reporting, or that it was possible, in Zucker's words, to cover race "with more focus and force" than it already does. Zucker is following in the footsteps of many corporate leaders who feel pressured to...

    It’s not quite the same as finding out that the most recognizable face of your company has been arrested for pedophilia, but Dunkin’ Donuts has to be rethinking its marketing strategy after spokesman Snoop Dogg spent the last 48 hours threatening CBS news anchor Gayle King and calling for the release of convicted sex offender Bill Cosby. In January – one month after Dunkin’ Donuts’ CMO resigned to pursue “the next opportunity” – the coffee chain launched a national ad campaign featuring Snoop Dogg. Now, less than a month later, it has to make a decision about whether to suspend...

    A former Oxford University medical student hugged his family after he was cleared of raping a woman who was 'eight or nine out of 10 drunk' and passed out at a party. His family sobbed in relief from the public gallery and the shocked 27-year-old, wearing a striped shirt, was embraced by members of his emotional family and friends, all keen for hugs of congratulation. The jury was told that the alleged rape victim had posted on a Facebook group, naming Mr McPaul as her rapist to almost 3,000 members, most of whom were anonymous strangers she did not know....
  • There's Only One Hero in the Harvey Weinstein Saga: Ronan Farrow

    Weekly Standard ^ | 10/12/17 | Lee Smith
    On Tuesday the New Yorker published Ronan Farrow’s expose of Harvey Weinstein, describing in detail the famous Hollywood producer’s long history of sexual abuse and assaults of actresses and other women in the movie industry. Coming on the heels of a New York Times article published last Thursday about Weinstein, the Farrow article seems to clinch the case against a major figure in the world of entertainment, media, and politics. The question is why, after years of protecting Weinstein, did the American press publish two pieces about him in less than a week? Was it because after stories detailing the...

    Bill Cosby is speaking out from prison. Over a year after he was first incarcerated for the sexual assault of Andrea Constand, the disgraced actor and comedian — who is serving three to 10 years — has given his first interview. In it, the 82-year-old maintained his innocence from his Pennsylvania correctional institution, Phoenix, which is located outside Philadelphia, and, because of that, he expects to serve the entire sentence. Cosby also called his trial a “set up” and the jurors “imposters.” “I have eight years and nine months left,” Cosby told National Newspaper Publishers Association's BlackPressUSA.com, clearly not believing...

He was about to embark on another comedy tour based on a special that had aired on Comedy Central the year before. The special, Far from Finished, was Cosby’s first stand-up TV special in three decades, and it attracted two million viewers. It was as...

    Despite the circumstances, Bill Cosby said his time in prison is an "amazing experience," his press spokesman Andrew Wyatt said in a TV interview. Wait, really? "Yeah, he used the term amazing experience," Wyatt said. Wyatt's interview with WCAU in Philadelphia provides new details of Cosby's time behind bars at SCI Phoenix, the prison outside Philadelphia. Cosby was sentenced in September to three to 10 years in prison for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in 2004. The case came after dozens of women came forward with accusations that Cosby had drugged and assaulted them in similar...

    In the wake of Bill Cosby‘s conviction on three counts of sexual assault last month, his wife, Camille Cosby, has issued a lengthy statement defending her husband. In the nearly 800-word statement, she compares Bill Cosby’s accusers to Emmett Till‘s accuser, chastises the media, and calls the district attorney office’s campaign “unethical.” Camille Cosby’s statement: “We the people” are the first three words of our nation’s Constitution, but who were those people in 1787?

So Mr. Cosby is doing fine. He’s holding up well and everybody that wants to say anything negative,...
