Bill Cosby is under the cosh. The actor who played cuddly Cliff Huxtable in the Eighties a kind of safe suburban Black Man Can Jumpers is accused of being a rapist.

No trial. Now arrest. No charges. Bill Cosby says he’s innocent. He says:

“I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn’t have to answer to innuendos.”

But the media is onto him. CNN  declares:

A detective says when questioned about allegedly raping Andrew Constana, then 31, at his mansion in Philadelphia in 2004, Bill Cosby was  “evasive . . . only telling us things he knew we already knew”.
