Glenn unleashed on the sorry state of the media today. What once was a bastion of fearlessness and integrity has devolved into a sad combination of cowardness and agenda. Glenn played a few examples, including the dishonesty from the reporter who told Bill Cosby he wouldn't ask him something but did, then recorded Cosby asking him not to publicize it.
Watch the Cosby report from the Associated Press:
During the interview, Bill Cosby was repeatedly asked if he wanted to respond to the allegations and he continually said he would not comment.
"No, no, we don't answer that," Cosby said.
When pressed, Cosby said "There is no comment about that...and I'll tell you why. I think you were told. I—I don't want to compromise your integrity. But we don't—I don't—talk about it."
"I don't know about Bill Cosby. But I'm not his judge," Glenn said. "Maybe he did it, maybe he didn't. But you don't have a right to do, what I believe, is happening to this guy at this point without some sort of defense. Where do you go to get your credibility back. Where do you go to get your name back? You don't."
Glenn went into a larger attack on the media industry as a whole, slamming the AP for trying to drive interest and clicks by publishing audio where Cosby and his wife clearly thought the interview was over.
"Journalism is the most dishonorable, dishonest, callous, cynical, mean, stupid, stupid people and industry I've ever seen," Glenn said.
