    For now, it seems, Bill Cosby's public response to renewed allegations of sexual assault is complete and utter silence.

    On Sunday an attorney for Cosby, John P. Schmitt, called the allegations "decade-old" and "discredited," and said his client would not address the matter.


    "The fact that they are being repeated does not make them true," Schmitt said in a statement. "Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment."

    That statement came one day after NPR broadcast an awkward interview with Cosby -- awkward because Cosby did not utter one word when repeatedly asked about the charges against him.

    NPR host Scott Simon filled the airtime by saying Cosby was just "shaking his head no."

    Allegations that Cosby committed sexual assault date back to the mid-2000s, when several women came forward to describe intimidation, abuse and rape.

    Cosby, the iconic star of the classic TV sitcom "The Cosby Show," has never been charged with a crime, and his representatives have steadfastly denied the accusations in the past.

    But the allegations have resurfaced with momentum this month amid new news accounts, comments from comedians, and reactions on social networking websites. One of Cosby's accusers, Barbara Bowman, spoke out in a number of interviews on CNN this week.

    The renewed interest compelled Simon to raise the issue with the Cosby, who with his wife Camille, was being interviewed about an exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art to which they had donated 62 pieces of art.

    seems like a lot of people piling up on Bill Cosby. I used to find him fun and funny. I hope the allegations aren't true.

    Agreed.
    These allegations are really creepy.
    All these woman seem to be telling the same/similar story.
    Very sad if true.

    When he's generated this much smoke, there probably was plenty of inappropriate fires in Bill's pants.

    He raped her.......for two years straight.

    I'm pretty sure that's not rape. That's called fucking an old guy in exchange for rent.

    Sorry, but this all seems orchestrated. Funny how the smear campaign against Cosby didn't start until after he started speaking out against the black community. Stuff like pull up your pants, stop being lazy and educate yourselves, etc. The left doesn't like it when one of their house niggars step off the plantation.

    Load of crap. Hannibal Burress is solely responsible for raising the subject again. People finally noticed. He was doing the pull up your pants hypocrisy for a long time before that. Also, it's scummy to use slurs no matter how you spell them.

    Ughh, Cosby has been "speaking out" against the black community for decades. Chris Rock had a bit about it, Eddie Murphy had a bit about it, fucking Richard Pryor had a bit about it... Thanks Obama?

    And by the way, not a twinge of irony in his castigation of negative stereotypes with the blaeks as he clearly cheats on his wife every chance he gets, whether he's raping a bitch or not? Those baggy pants are the real problem, not the constant out of wedlock pregnancies and fatherless youth.

    Consider it a growing up experience.

    I'm a big fan of Woody Allen movies. Does that mean I don't realize he's a fucking insidious predator and horrific monster that I wouldn't brake for if I saw crossing the street? No fucking way.

    You should realize early on in life that just because someone can make you smile or put you in awe of their art doesn't mean they're good human beings. Lennon beat his first wife regularly. Pete Townshed downloads kiddie pr0n.

    The dynamism of humanity.

    Well said and largely agreed except that I stopped watching stuff from Woody Allen and Roman Polanski and others who turned out to be evil or despicable. Even great art is expendable and not worth compromising your morals. Everyone draws his or her own lines and judgment.

    Woody tells a story where his father had a stand on the boardwalk. A bad storm came and destroyed everything. Leaving only his fathers stand, witch was them 3 milk containers you try to knock down.

    That's kind of what I'm thinking. I mean, maybe he cheated on the wife and perfect family but I don't see how he raped a person in that situation. But if that's true, that rape was occurring over a period of time there has to be more evidence these people's statements. I don't know the specifics of the allegations though.
    this one always made me laugh - going to the dentist :) (where's @Bye You!)
