    Do you think he is being targeted, or that there is something going on here?

    I think he did it, and then paid them off...A women's scorn is a bitch...Speaking from personal experience.

    Disturbing on a number of levels, guilty or not, he hasn't handled it well and for his own legacy, if innocent, he needs to "handle it", meaning confront the situation, otherwise he may be permanently tainted.

    It's always true that someone who's busy giving moral instruction to other people is up to something sleazy himself
    It actually makes sense
    Most of us don't spend our time obsessing about our and other people's moral failures----unless we're feeling very very guilty about our own

    Glass houses... It's very sad if it's true.

    The number of women coming forward is substantial. However, would they have come out of the woodwork if Cosby was a janitor? Just saying...

    His mistress that came out is a lying whore, literally. First off anyone who cheats in my book is a whore so that makes Cosby one too. For his mistress to say that her child is the product of rape and to only come about 20 years later? Go to sleep. The statute of limitations has long expired on you. Just another Monica or Marilyn

    I don't know about the rape charges but I guess we'll find out in time. But about this, if I remember correctly, his "obsessing" was simply using his celebrity to tell the black community that they need to be better parents to their kids and telling kids to stop idolizing thugs. How is that bad? I think the message was on-target. With the out of wedlock birthrate approaching 90% in the black community and 50% in the white, I'm glad someone has the balls to say something.

    That's why it's sad if it's true. When I was a kid Bill Cosby was somewhere on par with Mr. Rogers in terms of public persona.

    I do not think he is being targeted at all. I believe that he drugged and raped those women. It's hard to even write because Dr. Huxtable is a character that has inspired to be a father since I was a child. It's the only show that I don't mind watching the same episode again - regardless of how many times I've seen it. These allegations are anything but new - however, they seemed to have reached some sort of critical mass in the last year.
    I'm sure people will try to blame the victims and say that they are looking to gain something and repudiate them for not coming out earlier.... However, who in the world would have believed that the very paragon of family life is capable of such acts?
    As for his legacy - I don't think I can look at him or his work in the same light that I used to.

    No one's come out with anything credible to the supposed incidents yet which makes think he's being targeted.

    All I know is that no celebrity who has ever been charged with rape has ever walked away unscathed, guilty or not.

    Hmm. You know, come to think of it, I remember Cosby taking advantage of me too. Anyone know where I can pick up my check from him?

    wedlock is a bit of an outdated term, don't you think? it's religion and morality based first off. wedlock basically implies that the mother and the father aren't together when the baby was born, are in a relationship where they are not married or the father up and left out the picture. that is NOT often the case with babies being born and honestly, WHY should it matter? not every relationship is PERFECT. the divorce rate is high and there's plenty of people that have gotten divorced and are in their second or third marriages.

    plenty of people have babies and AREN'T married yet. plenty of couples have babies when they're married and get divorced soon after. what i'm saying is basically "wedlock" is some back in the days shit. [/quoteYeah, I'll give you the term "wedlock" is out of date. But the point is that too many men are getting women pregnant and not taking responsibility and too many girls think having a baby is for entertainment and not taking steps to not get pregnant. The kids suffer, especially in the black community where there's more poverty. White, too, but Cosby was trying to help his own community, promote schooling, change the attitude that doing well and speaking well is acting "white." That's nothing but good.

    This was the first thing I thought of. How the hell you judge others and you've been out raping and drugging women? I remember Bill saying someone has to air this dirty laundry (regarding the black community), and now someone is airing his. When you present yourself as someone greater than, the fall from grace is that much steeper. I've never really been a big fan of Bill. The Cosby show was before my time, and his comedy was never really ever on my radar.

    Tonight a woman came forward and said she was drugged the first time, but came back several times for sex for years.

    Don Lemon's comments to a victim are repugnant:

    I am with sharkspeare on this one,
    sadly these are most likely true, because these women are not saying it for $ or for criminal prosecution
    ( as stated, expired statute of limitations )

    Can anyone still remember Ted Haggard http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/06/ted-haggard-sex-scandal_n_3875908.html? lol
    The CoZ joins the ranks and likes of him and the Catholic pedo priests and Pope Ratslinger who covered up for them icon_cry.gif

    I see no way to know for certain whether the allegations are true. If they are true, he obviously would not be the first well-known person to have a zipper problem and behave in an abominable and hypocritical manner. It's too bad that we cannot eliminate all such behavior.

    I remember Theodore Haggard. These people whose exploitive behavior damages the life of other people are probably far more numerous than we know. To make it even worse, they have the hypocritical gall to condemn people who are not harming others.

    Haggard has a web site; it might be interesting to explore it.

    Well leave it for the law to decide but I see how some of you get so obsessed with celebrities that you all can't separate their actual personality from the character they play in a tv series. Some of you really need to open your eyes.

    There is only court of public opinion at this point / he will not be suing any of them for defamation because he does not want the investigations or the added attention to this
