Bill Cosby ‘Breaks Silence,’ Says Nothing

A case study in terrible interviews.

In case you haven’t heard, Bill Cosby’s exclusive appearance on Good Morning America today provided us with a case study in how NOT to give an interview.

Here’s a clip; the rest of the interview will air on Nightline:

Did that make any sense to you?

Keith O’Brien of Haymarket Media had a very accurate take this morning:

Gawker’s Defamer blog focused on some of the “nonsense” statements Cosby used to avoid directly addressing the fact that more than 40 women have accused him of sexual assault:

I am prepared to tell this young person the truth about life. I’m not sure that they will come like that. I think that many of them say, well, “You’re a hypocrite. You say one thing, you say the other.” My point is, okay, listen to me carefully. I’m telling you where the road is out. I’m telling you where, as you’re driving, you’re gonna go into water, and it looks like it might only be three inches deep, but you and your car are gonna go down. Now you wanna go here? Or you wanna be concerned about who’s giving you the message?

We can only respond with one word: UGH.
