At this point, I’m within 3 leaked depositions, 26 victims, and a couple colorful sweaters of losing faith in Bill Cosby. That sounds crazy. But, for a long time that was a common reaction even as the list of accusers accumulated. What were people waiting for; Cosby to take his dates home in a White Ford Bronco? At this point, even Fat Albert is like, “Hey! Hey! … Huh?” There will be few remaining doubters after this powerful NY Mag piece that allowed 35 women to tell their stories about being assaulted by Bill Cosby, and the culture that wouldn’t listen.

+ Who knows? Maybe there will still be doubters. After all, this story has been around for years. Just take a look back at Robert Huber’s Philly Mag story you’d assume would have been a career-ender (or much worse). Dr. Huxtable & Mr. Hyde: “It’s a crazy game Americans in particular seem to play, the way we need to believe desperately in our heroes — we want Bill Cosby to be as sweet as Cliff, to be as noble as his desire to lift up his people.”
