Cosby Mocked by Hometown Newspaper

A most calamitous stretch of Cosby media coverage continues.

At press time, an Inquirer report about Andrea Constand is the most viewed item on the philly.com website. And for anyone in and around the City of Brotherly Astonishment, there’s also today’s Philadelphia Daily News front page.

From the accompanying Daily News piece by Joe Brandt:

In court filings Tuesday in Constand’s case against the comedian in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia, attorneys Dolores Troiani and Bebe Kivitz revealed that Constand is a lesbian.

“Despite [Cosby’s] talent for interpreting female reactions to him, he did not realize [Constand] was gay until police told him,” the lawyers wrote in a memorandum.

Constand, formerly the director of operations for Temple University’s women’s basketball team, accused Cosby of molesting her at his Cheltenham mansion in January 2004. She was visiting Cosby to receive career advice, according to court documents.

The attorneys’ reference to Cosby’s “talent” concerns some statements made by the entertainer in his 2005-2006 criminal deposition, as revealed earlier this month by The New York Times.
