    A new attack ad comparing Brett Kavanaugh to Bill Clinton and Bill Cosby has been launched by the American Civil Liberties Union. The 30 second clip points out that Clinton and Cosby both vehemently denied sex claims against them before they were found to be lying. It is part of a million-dollar effort by the nonprofit to persuade wavering senators not to back Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court amid sexual assault claims by three women.

    Bill Cosby’s PR team put on a brave face Tuesday after the once-beloved comedian was sentenced to three to 10 years in Pennsylvania state prison. “They persecuted Jesus and look what happened,” publicist Andrew Wyatt told reporters outside the courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania, after Cosby was taken into custody following his April conviction for three counts of aggravated sexual assault. “Not saying Mr. Cosby is Jesus,” Wyatt quickly clarified. “But we know what this country has done to black men for centuries. So Mr. Cosby is doing fine. He’s holding up well and everybody that wants to say anything negative,...

    Los Angeles police are investigating the vandalism of disgraced comedian Bill Cosby’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame after it was marked with the words “serial rapist,” authorities said.

Authorities cleaned the plaque and reported the vandalism, Lopez said. Cosby, 81, once known as “America’s dad” for his role on the sitcom “The Cosby Show,” was convicted in April of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand, a former basketball...

    Bill Cosby was convicted Thursday of drugging and molesting a woman in the first big celebrity trial of the #MeToo era, completing the spectacular late-life downfall of a comedian who broke racial barriers in Hollywood on his way to TV superstardom as America's Dad. Cosby, 80, could end up spending his final years in prison after a jury concluded he sexually assaulted Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. He claimed the encounter was consensual. Cosby stared straight ahead as the verdict was read but moments later lashed out loudly at District Attorney Kevin Steele...

    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? Dr. Howard Zinn, the renowned, honest historian, states in his best selling book, A People’s History of the United States: “The majority of the 55 men...

Camille Cosby, who has been married to The Cosby Show star since 1964, has gone after the Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele, the media and Cosby’s accusers in a statement that alludes to racial injustice. “The overall media, with their frenzied, relentless demonization of him and unquestioning acceptance of accusers’ allegations without any attendant proof, have superseded the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, which guarantee...
