    The U.S. Supreme Court quietly announced Monday that it would not review Bill Cosby’s sexual assault case, leaving him a free man and ending a two-decade legal drama that shifted the cultural landscape, destroyed the groundbreaking Black actor’s reputation, and sent him to prison for several years late in life. The high court, without comment, declined to review a stunning decision out of Pennsylvania that released Cosby from prison in June over the word of a former prosecutor who said he had made a secret promise to Cosby’s lawyers that he would never be charged. A Cosby spokesperson expressed “sincere...

    Bill Cosby hid behind the “America’s Dad” illusion he created to abuse women, said a former Playboy Playmate who claims she was one of his victims. Ahead of a new documentary about the disgraced comedian, Victoria Valentino, one of 60 women to point their fingers at the fallen funnyman, claims Cosby, now 84, drugged and raped her in an apartment in Hollywood Hills in 1969, just weeks after her 6-year-old son had drowned.

    A prominent Bill Cosby accuser filed suit Thursday against the actor over a 1990 hotel room encounter in Atlantic City, New Jersey, before the state's two-year window to file older sexual assault claims expires. Los Angeles artist Lili Bernard told The Associated Press she was prompted in part by Cosby's recent release from prison. The 84-year-old Cosby has been free since June, when the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned his 2018 sexual assault conviction in another case on procedural grounds. He had served more than two years of a potential 10-year sentence.

    Bill Cosby he believes disgraced singer R Kelly was 'railroaded' during his sex trafficking trial, according to his rep. The comedian blamed racism for Kelly's conviction on several counts on Monday, and said any appeal the singer made would likely be successful. In an interview with the New York Post, Cosby's spokesman Andrew Wyatt said the 84-year-old felt Kelly 'got railroaded' and 'wasn't going to catch a break' in his month-long trial. 'The deck was stacked against Robert,' Wyatt told the paper, using Kelly's first name. The Cosby rep also criticised lawyer Gloria Allred who represented victims in both Kelly...

    If anyone thought a now-free Bill Cosby was going to lay low for a bit after having his rape conviction and sentence suddenly overturned last week, think again. The much-accused actor once known as “America’s Dad” chose America’s Independence Day to prove them wrong. In a somewhat confusing, scattered statement today, Cosby decried the bloody attempted coup at the Capitol in January as the fault of the mainstream media. “The mainstream media are the Insurrectionists, who stormed the Capitol. Those same Media Insurrectionists are trying to demolish the Constitution of these United State of America on this Independence Day,” the...

Comedy club owners have called. People want to see him.” The 83-year-old Cosby was freed Wednesday after serving more than two years of a three-to-10-year sentence at a state...

    While Bill Cosby may have walked out of prison a free man yesterday, the courts saw to it that he endured two criminal trials and spent years in prison during his appeals.On June 30, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court tossed the criminal sexual assault conviction against Bill Cosby, concluding that the 2005 decision by District Attorney Bruce Castor not to prosecute Cosby for the alleged sexual assault of Andrea Constand barred Pennsylvania from later charging Cosby with that crime. Given the avalanche of allegations that the former actor and comedian drugged and then sexually assaulted scores of young women, Wednesday’s decision...

    This is the awkward moment a BBC reporter confuses disgraced comedian Bill Cosby for Bill Clinton live on air. Journalist Michelle Fleury was reporting on the entertainer's shock prison release - but accidentally referred the former US President instead. The huge gaffe forced top BBC News presenter Huw Edwards to apologise to viewers for the blunder. It came just hours after Cosby, 83, was allowed to return home just two years into his 10 year sentence for sexual assault because of a legal technicality. In the video, news anchor Huw Edwards introduces Ms Fleurry, live from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to give...

    What will Hunter Biden be doing to bring in 2021 tonight? Will he be hooking up with an old flame? We don’t know where Hunter will be at or who he will be with but chances are it will involve porn and drugs. Yaacov Apelbaum at the Illustrated Primer notes: Despite Hunter Biden’s widespread exploitation of women—some of whom were VERY young—his acts which included solicitation for prostitution, trafficking, revenge porn, and possession and distribution of cocaine, there hasn’t been even one serious investigation against him. On the contrary, the DOJ and various state DAs have been suppressing the evidence...

    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....
