The Associated Press did an interview with Bill Cosby and his wife back on November 6 about an art exhibit.
At the end of the interview, the AP interviewer, Brett Zongker, asked Cosby about the recent sexual assault allegations.
Cosby responded by saying,
No, no. We don’t answer that. There’s no response. There is no comment about that.
Once the interview had effectively ended, the camera was still running and Cosby was still mic’d.
That’s when Cosby asked Zongker if all the footage pertaining to the sexual assault allegations could be thrown out.
I would appreciate it if it was scuttled. I think if you want to consider yourself to be serious that it will not appear anywhere.
Zongker said he would take it into consideration, but could make no promises, as such decisions were up to his editors.
Clearly, the editors decided to release the footage, which makes sense, considering more and more women have come forward to accuse Cosby of rape.
