The same part of acting that led people to believe Donald Trump was qualified to be President.


Exactly!

the part where paying attention to his crime was magically more interesting than the countless more violent sexual assaults that happened while that jury deliberated.

Louisiana woman accused of raping 12-year-old boy tells police ‘it was only an accident’

Arnesha Tiara John Louis was visiting with a friend on April 18 when she began “horse playing” with her friend’s 12-year-old son, according to the St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Louis pulled the boy’s pants down, climbed on top of him, and began having sex with him.

One of the fascinating things for me to observe is Camille Cosby. For decades she has been living on a private pleasure barge provided by her husband, floating down the biggest effing river in Egypt. She is the Queen of Denial.


MeDot he. had. everything. Everything! The talent, the looks, the education, he was the whole damn package. An athlete, his military service, university education, stand up career, the distinction of being the FIRST Black American male ever featured in a tv drama (the first!), his tv shows, his concerts, his albums, film career, the family, the prestige, the status, the money, the respect of adults and children, and he squandered it all.

Every stinking little last bit of it.

What happens now to those who held him up as role model? I suppose they face reality and deal with it. And be better off for it over time.

I'm not done yet. This man broke through racial barriers like a frickin' race horse in the 60's. The SIXTIES for god sakes. Maybe you had to be witness to it to "get it" the trajectory of his career juxtaposed with racial tension throughout the country. When racial tensions were at their height, this guy achieved popularity and acceptance like no other African American with the possible exception of musicians. Before Cosby, the only African American's on television were those who perpetuated stereotypes. Cosby came along and shattered the stereotypes.

And look where he is today. Facing jail time. What a damn shame.

MeDot mentioned his wife. How she's stood by him, head held high in total denial. Well, I guess that's what happens when you buy into your own status and prestige. When you buy into your superstardom, ignore the signs or think your bank account can shut people up, and think you married an untouchable god.

Well, he's not. He's a convicted criminal, a pervert, a serial rapist. He had positively everything a man could ever hope to have in life. The sick bastard.

I wonder if Trump is paying attention?

Just flipped over to CNN and found this.

Tom Brokaw, news anchor

http://money.cnn.com/2018/04/26/media/n ... index.html


Quote:
Former NBC News correspondent Linda Vester has accused former "NBC Nightly News" anchor Tom Brokaw, who retired in 2004, of harassment, according to reports by the Washington Post and Variety.

Variety reported that Vester said Brokaw "tried to force her to kiss him on two separate occasions." She also told the magazine that he groped her and showed up at her hotel room uninvited.

"I am speaking out now because NBC has failed to hire outside counsel to investigate a genuine, long-standing problem of sexual misconduct in the news division," Vester told the Post.

Brokaw denied the allegations in a statement provided to reporters by NBC.

No, i witnessed it (loved I Spy) - but it does not mean i should worship him for it....nor does it mean he possesses some magical power....in fact, most every person I have known and ever heard of is flawed.

Just about everyone, no actually everyone, facing jail time is a damn shame. Just because a person was not "the first black guy..." does not mean they do not deserve our pity.

he was only convicted of assault against one woman...that does not make him a serial rapist...or even a singular rapist.

So it is not sick if you don't have everything a man could ever hope for?

oh, i guess you intended to simply convey "high esteem" and i just confused the plethora of your comments as being akin to worship....for example:

Because you're an intellectually dishonest troll who thinks that referring to facts as "worship" while ignoring the totality of a person's summary is the only way you can get close to cutting it here?

I dunno...I'm guessing.

Actor and comedian Bill Cosby testified in a 2005 civil lawsuit that he acquired Quaaludes “with the intent of giving them to young women to have sex with”.

I'm fairly certain that's not a good look when you're on trial for drugging and raping women you drugged.

Having sex with a Quaalude seems like it would be a fairly unsatisfying experience.

Maybe Bill has a bit of a necro thing. :eek: I hear it helps if you're married to Mormon women. :lol:

And no, I don't think sexually assaulting people is funny. :rolleyes:

Weinstein...voluntarily surrendered, cuffed, arrested, charged with rape, committing a criminal sex act, sexual abuse and sexual misconduct, will post a one million dollar bond and wear ankle monitor.

Pleads not guilty. No surprises there.

Tidal wave--changing tides. The entertainment industry is putting in place some of the very measures in it's code of conduct that I had suggested in a previous thread about Harvey Weinstein. And, it's about time.

Bold mine.

SAG-AFTRA And TV Networks Move To Eliminate Casting Couch

June 10, 20181:00 PM ET
Shannon Van Sant


The largest actors' union in the U.S. has reached a tentative agreement with four television networks to try to eliminate the so-called casting couch, and prevent sexual harassment and assault. SAG-AFTRA struck a new deal with ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox, which limits private meetings in off-site locations, including hotel rooms and private residences.

SAG-AFTRA is the union that represents the journalists at NPR, among 160,000 others in the media and entertainment industries, including actors, announcers, broadcast journalists, dancers, DJs, news writers, and news editors.

Reuters reports that Gabrielle Carteris, the president of SAG-AFTRA, said the agreement aims to eliminate opportunities for "predators to exploit performers behind closed doors under the guise of a professional meeting." She said the new guideline is a "partial realization of our work toward industry culture change."

Ari Wilkenfeld, a civil rights lawyer who represents victims of sexual harassment and assault, said of the agreement by SAG-AFTRA and the television networks, "I would like to characterize this as the very first step, in a very long marathon that we have to walk to clean things up."

The new, three-year contract also includes pay increases, and improvement to harassment prevention language. It follows SAG-AFTRA's decision in February to release a Code of Conduct on Sexual Harassment, and an initiative called Four Pillars of Change. The new rules include updated guidelines, and expand education and intervention efforts. The code also provides a definition of sexual harassment and what constitutes a hostile work environment, and detailed employers' legal obligations.

"To truly change the culture we must be courageous and willing," Carteris said in February, according to Variety. "At its most basic, this Code will ultimately help better define what harassment is, and what members' rights are in real world situations. We are going further, however, with the launch of our Four Pillars of Change initiative to achieve safe workplaces and advance equity."

In April, SAG-AFTRA issued a new code of conduct guideline for members, emphasizing that professional meetings need to take place in professional locations. It read in part:

"We call on producers and other decision makers with influence or control over decisions that can impact a career, to STOP holding professional meetings in these high-risk locations and find alternative, appropriate locations for professional meetings. Furthermore, we call on SAG-AFTRA members and their representatives to STOP agreeing to professional meetings in these high-risk locations."

It also called for union members to bring a "support peer" to meetings that have to be held in private, off-site locations:

"In the unlikely event that there is no reasonable alternative forum for a professional meeting, we strongly encourage members go only with the support of a second individual – of their own choosing – who attends the meeting to serve as a 'Support Peer.' The Support Peer should be allowed to maintain physical access to the member at all times during the meeting (e.g., no closed doors blocking the member and Support Peer)."


The new guidelines from SAG-AFTRA and television networks come as the #MeToo movement has worked to end sexual misconduct from the workplace. Last year, more than 80 women accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault.

Their accusations led to similar allegations against prominent men across several industries, including media and entertainment.

On May 25, a New York criminal court charged Harvey Weinstein with rape and other abuse violations.
Weinstein has pleaded not guilty to those charges.
