Whoopi Goldberg/Jill Scott shout-outs aside, Bill Cosby made his first statements on the allegations and legal charges pending against him over the weekend. In what may seem like an unusual strategic move, he chose freelancer Stacy Brown (of the somewhat notorious New York Post gossip source Page Six) as his press contact of choice.
Brown called Cosby, who made a request:
“I only expect our black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism, and when you do that you have to go in with a neutral mind.”
The implication, of course, is that the rest of the media and the court of public opinion have already called him guilty.
