Bill Cosby’s Sexual Assault Charge Sparks Hard-Hitting NY Daily News Front Page

New York paper hammers home the hefty number of women who have accused the scandal-plagued comedian

Leave it to the New York Daily News to get clever about the criminal charge filed against Bill Cosby.

Hours after Cosby was charged with a felony charge of aggravated indecent assault on Wednesday, the Daily News offered a sneak peek of its Thursday front page on Twitter.

Under the banner “After 55+ Accusations, Cosby Finally Busted,” the cover features the disgraced comedian’s mug shot, along with the message, “He Said-She Said,” followed by “she said, she said, she said, she said, she said …” And so on.

The scandal-plagued star was arraigned in Pennsylvania on Wednesday on charges stemming from accusations made by former Temple University employee Andrea Constand, who claims that Cosby assaulted her at his residence in 2004. Constand had filed a suit against Cosby, which was subsequently settled.

In the past year, Cosby has been accused of rape or sexual assault by dozens of women, many of whom claimed that he drugged them beforehand.

In addition to the criminal charge, the comedian faces multiple lawsuits filed by accusers. He has also suffered a number of career setbacks in the wake of the accusations.

Cosby’s former attorney, Martin Singer, has denied the allegations in the past.
