For several weeks Bill Cosby stayed mum, and now he has broken his silent and spoke out about all of his sexual and rape assault allegations.

The TV star, who is now 77-year-old, recently talked to the reporter from the New York Post – Stacy Brown.

The conversation between comedian and reporter was all about the stance of Afro-American media during this hard time.

Bill Cosby talked with the reporter Stacy Brown over the phone and during their conversation he said: “Let me say this. I only expect the black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism and when you do that, you have to go in with a neutral mind.”

Cosby has made his decision to stay away from the media during this sexual and rape assault allegations. This interview with the New York Post reporter marks the second comment which Bill Cosby has stated since the first accusation was published in the media, several months ago.

One month ago, in November, Cosby made his first speech about all this assault allegations. He talked with the reporter from Florida Today when he stated: “I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn’t have to answer to innuendos.

People should fact check. People shouldn’t have to go through that and shouldn’t answer to innuendos.” The interview with the reporter Stacy Brown from the New York Post was brief, however, during the interview Bill Cosby found time to praise his wife Camille Cosby, who is 50-year-old.


Camille Cosby stayed by Bill’s side throughout this hard time and in reference to his woman the famous comedian said: “Love and the strength of womanhood. Let me say it again, love and the strength of womanhood. And, you could reverse it, the strength of womanhood and love.”
