    Comedian Bill Cosby has been ordered to give a sworn deposition in a lawsuit brought by a woman who accuses him of sexually molesting her during a party at the Playboy Mansion in 1974. The order by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Craig Karlan, made public Wednesday, requires Cosby to submit to questioning by Judy Huth's lawyer on Oct. 9. Huth will give a deposition of her own on Oct. 15.
  • Rape Allegation Double Standard: Liberal Elites Turn on Bill Cosby, But Not Bill Clinton

    Why are the liberal media and other liberal elites turning on the black Bill Cosby - while supporting the white Bill Clinton? The cries of racist double standards surrounding grand jury decisions in the case of Ferguson’s Michael Brown and Staten Island’s Eric Garner have been loud and clear. Coupled with movements protesting sexual assault on college campuses and in the American military, both of which have won much publicized support from President Obama, the contrast between the treatment of the black actor/comedian Cosby and the ongoing celebration of the white former President could not be more conspicuous. Like Cosby,...

    In the years since women first said Bill Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted them and the months since the media started paying attention, it’s been difficult to keep track of the comedian’s alleged victims. Many publications — including The Washington Post — have reported dozens of versions of the same story: A young woman, often an aspiring actress, is violated by a man who thinks himself a mentor. After a few weeks, unfortunately, it became difficult to tell such stories apart. Was it P.J. Masten who said Cosby drugged and raped her in a Chicago hotel, or was that Lise-Lotte...

    Over the course of four days in 2005 and 2006, Bill Cosby answered questions posed to him by a lawyer for a woman, Andrea Constand, who said Mr. Cosby had drugged and molested her. In the questioning, conducted by Ms. Constand’s lawyer, Dolores M. Troiani, Mr. Cosby denied that he had sexually assaulted Ms. Constand or other women who surfaced during that case with their own accounts of being preyed upon by Mr. Cosby. But he did acknowledge that he had used powerful sedatives to lure women for sex and employed multiple strategies to keep his wife, Camille, from finding...

    President Obama on Wednesday said bluntly that the actions described in accusations that the comedian Bill Cosby drugged women for sex would constitute nothing less than rape, and he said the country should have “no tolerance” for such actions. In his first comments on the decades-old accusations against Mr. Cosby, the president sought to carefully avoid a direct comment on civil legal actions that have been lodged against the longtime comedian and television star by several women in recent years. And he dismissed the idea that he might revoke the Presidential Medal of Freedom conferred on Mr. Cosby by President...

    Without addressing the allegations against Bill Cosby directly, President Obama Wednesday all but called the comedian a rapist during a White House press conference. Asked at a news conference whether he believes Cosby should be stripped of the Medal of Freedom he was awarded back in 2002, Obama initially sidestepped the issue by saying he doesn’t comment on cases where there might yet be criminal or civil charges and that he wasn’t even sure how the medal could be taken away. “There’s no precedent for revoking a medal. We don’t have that mechanism,” the president said. But then, days after...

Goldberg treated the chat as an educational sit down, claiming that she had always been under the impression that if Cosby had raped and drugged women, he would be arrested and taken to jail.

    resident Obama is under mounting pressure to revoke a Presidential Medal of Freedom bestowed on embattled comedian Bill Cosby by former President George W. Bush in 2002. But even if he wanted to take it away, does he have the presidential power to make it happen? A budding petition launched Wednesday on whitehouse.gov urging the president to take action had collected about 2,000 signatures as of this morning. At least 100,000 signatures are required for the White House to provide an official response to the petition.

"Here's the deal: This is 'The View' and that was my opinion," Goldberg said. "Not any of you threatening me or telling me you're coming after me because you don't like what I said is going to change the fact that no one has convicted him, he has not been arrested, and the bottomline is that's the law-innocent, until proven guilty."

    Though long a symbol of responsible parenthood — model TV dad, doctor of education, proud supporter of Temple University — Bill Cosby etched his legacy in stone with a speech in 2004 that took black parents to task. It became famous as the “Pound Cake” speech for this passage: “Looking at the incarcerated, these are not political criminals. These are people going around stealing Coca-Cola. People getting shot in the back of the head over a piece of pound cake! Then we all run out and are outraged: ‘The cops shouldn’t have shot him.’ What the hell was he doing...

This admission, from a lawsuit that was settled in 2006, should move the Cosby controversy forward in a major way. Certain aspects of it just can’t be controversial anymore.

The AP had gone to court to compel the release of the documents; Cosby's lawyers had objected on the grounds that it would embarrass their client. The 77-year-old comedian was testifying under oath in a lawsuit filed by a former Temple University employee. He testified he gave her three half-pills of Benadryl.

    Model Janice Dickinson sued Bill Cosby for defamation on Wednesday over denials made by the comedian’s representatives after she accused him last year of raping her in 1982. Dickinson’s lawsuit seeks unspecified damages on defamation, false light and intentional infliction of emotional distress claims. The suit states Dickinson has been re-victimized and her reputation has suffered because of pointed denials by Cosby’s attorney that the comedian drugged and raped her in a Lake Tahoe, California, hotel room more than 30 years ago. The allegations were first made in an interview with “Entertainment Tonight” after numerous other women accused Cosby of...

    Like many of the women who say they were assaulted by Bill Cosby, it took me two decades to gain the courage to reveal it publicly. His accusers – mostly white, so far – have faced retaliation, humiliation, and skepticism by coming forward. As an African-American woman, I felt the stakes for me were even higher. Historic images of black men being vilified en masse as sexually violent sent chills through my body. Telling my story wouldn’t only help bring down Cosby; I feared it would undermine the entire African-American community.

    A woman who worked at a Bay Area restaurant back in the 1970's is the latest to come forward accusing comedian Bill Cosby of drugging and raping her. Donna Motsinger now lives in New Mexico.

She was a single mom, working as a waitress at the Trident restaurant in Sausalito. It was then owned by the Kingston Trio and it was a mecca for stars. She says Cosby asked her to go see him perform...

    Bill Cosby‘s lawyer Martin Singer accused CNN in a letter of “one-sided reporting” for not interviewing a witness of an alleged sexual assault, but CNN fired back in a letter today against Singer’s “dishonesty.” The letter, signed by CNN’s David Vigilante and obtained by Mediaite, was sent in response to Singer accusing the network of not interviewing Mark Burk, who was the live-in boyfriend of Beverly Johnson around the time she claims she was raped by Cosby, because he wouldn’t give them the answers they wanted. He wrote, “CNN has abandoned journalistic rigor on this story, blindly ignoring and deterring...

    **SNIP** McKee said she’d like to see Cosby sit for a lie-detector test. She also called it “embarrassing” that Cosby’s wife of 51 years, Camille, released a statement suggesting her husband was the “victim.” “I knew (Camille). We’d been to dinner, all of us, many times,” McKee said. “This is not a stupid woman. She has her head buried in the sand."

    Recently, an old friend asked Camille Cosby how she was holding up. The comedian’s wife, married 51 years, was silent for a moment. “You know, everyone has their limits,” she confided. But the glimpse into her pain was fleeting, and Mrs. Bill Cosby was instantly back in the character of the loyal defender. “I think his problem is that he’s far too trusting and he lets things go too far and people can get the wrong idea,” the 69-year-old said. Friends talked to The Post last week about the marriage of Bill and Camille, and why she has not lost...

    Yet another woman has come forward to accuse Bill Cosby of drugging and possibly taking advantage of her. On an episode of "Dr. Phil" airing on Friday, the talk show had seven of Cosby's accusers for guests, including a woman who was identified only as Lisa who said that she was drugged by the famous comedian more than two decades ago. Lisa had built a friendship with Cosby after being called to audition for him when she was a model in the 1980s. "I was very excited to go and see him," Lisa told Dr. Phil. "I was starstruck. I...

    Supermodel Beverly Johnson, who came forward last week to claim she was drugged by Bill Cosby, cites her daughter as one of the reasons she finally spoke out. It was her daughter, Anansa Sims, now 35, who first accompanied her to Cosby's Manhattan brownstone for brunch in the mid '80s, a few days before the comedian invited her back for an alleged audition. "My daughter loved him," Johnson wrote in Vanity Fair. It was only recently, after a series of women came forward claiming they had been drugged and assaulted by Cosby, that Johnson, 62, told her daughter she had...
