“If Oprah Winfrey interviewed Bill Cosby in the same way she interrogated James Frey…I think it would be devastating for him.”
So says Matthew Rozsa, author of the controversial article “Bill Cosby and the New Meaning of Integrity” recently posted at www.goodmenproject.com. ”Bill Cosby was as much an institution as Penn State or the Catholic Church.”
Today on BOLD, LeGrande Green interviews Matthew about the media firestorm surrounding this epic scandal. Should Oprah interview him? Will anyone? And exactly what role do we all play as insatiable consumers of innuendo, gossip and celebrity culture? A multiple Emmy winner and former supervising producer of “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” LeGrande brings a unique perspective to this provocative discussion.
To date, nearly two dozen women have come forth with accusations of being drugged and/or sexually assaulted by the fallen comic legend. Can there be a “happy ending?” Matthew thinks not. “With Bill Cosby, there is no recovery. If he is able to come out of this unscathed, it will speak volumes about where we are with women’s rights.”
