Basic Black After The Broadcast: The Bill Cosby Legacy

January 22, 2016

This week on Basic Black: the clash of Hollywood star power and politics. We take a look at Bill Clinton and Bill Cosby: just as Cosby was being arraigned on charges of sexual assault, Clinton’s well-documented sexual assault allegations and extramarital affairs have re-emerged, following Hillary Clinton on the presidential campaign trail. But is there any difference in the way both men are being viewed in the media… should there be a difference?

Panelists:
- Latoyia Edwards, Anchor, New England Cable News
- Kim McLarin, Associate Professor of Writing, Literature and Publishing, Emerson College
- Phillip Martin, Senior Reporter, WGBH News
- Julio Ricardo Varela, Digital Media Director, NPR’s Latino USA
