Daily News Cover Skewers ‘He Said-She Said’ Cosby Defense

Daily News cosby cover

The New York Daily News highlighted the disparity between the over 50 women who have publicly accused comedian Bill Cosby of sexual assault and Cosby’s own insistence that he is innocent in their Thursday cover.

Their front-page spread follows up on an editorial published Wednesday responding to Cosby’s arrest on felony sexual assault charges. The iconic entertainer was charged with aggravated indecent assault for allegedly drugging and sexually abusing former Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his Pennsylvania home in 2004. It is the first time Cosby has faced criminal charges for an alleged sexual assault.

As the Daily News’ editorial board writes, “With the toll of Cosby’s alleged victims standing at more like 60, the weight of the evidence is actually ‘he said-she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said.’”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
