Putz Of The Day-Don Lemon Asks Cosby Accuser- Why Didn't You Bite His D**k?

Growing up Bill Cosby was my favorite comedian. Somewhere in the attic I still have every single one of his comedy albums which must be worn out as they were played hundreds of times each.

The allegations of rape against the man some feel was the real Noah are very perplexing. There is really no way to know who is telling the truth (except in the case of Janice Dickinson which seems like an aging "B' list celebrity's last gasp for attention).

On Tuesday evening, CNN's Don Lemon interviewed Joan Tarshis, a woman who recently went public with an accusation that Bill Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1969.

Admittedly it is a tough interview, after all there is the real possibility the woman may be a victim of rape, any interviewer needs to be sensitive to that. Not Lemon though, during their exchange, Lemon questioned Tarshis on why she didn't bite Cosby-- use her teeth "as a weapon" when he forced her to perform oral sex.

Here's their conversation:
Lemon: Can I ask you this, because, and, and please, I don't mean to be crude, ok?

Tarshis: Yeah.

Lemon: Because I know some of you — you said this last night, that he — you lied to him and said "I have an infection, and if you rape me, or if you do — if you have intercourse with me, then you will probably get it and give it to your wife."

Tarshis: Right.

Lemon: And you said he made you perform oral sex.

Tarshis: Right.

Lemon: You know, there are ways not to perform oral sex if you didn't want to do it.

Tarshis: Oh. Um, I was kind of stoned at the time, and quite honestly, that didn't even enter my mind. Now I wish it would have.

Lemon: Right. Meaning the using of the teeth, right?

Tarshis: Yes, that's what I'm thinking you're —

Lemon: As a weapon.

Tarshis: Yeah, I didn't even think of it.

Lemon: Biting. So —

Tarshis: Ouch.

Lemon: Yes. I had to ask. I mean, it is, yeah.

Tarshis: Yes. No, it didn't cross my mind.

Perhaps the best commentary on the Lemon's interview techniques were found on twitter under the hashtag #donlemonreporting. There people anticipated other Don Lemon interview questions:

Yes, it is an amazing speech. Short and powerful.

Oh puh-leeze! She willingly gave Cosby a blowjob then claims, 30 years later, she was raped! Don Lemon asked the right question.

Jeff Dunetz said...

She was stoned. She waited far past the statue of limitations. There's no physical evidence. So, those are all reasons to doubt her story. On the other hand, the Left has a lot to gain from tarnishing a successful black man who's not part of their plantation system. Frankly, if you're accusing someone of a crime, you'd better be able to back up your allegations by handling all possible angles. Furthermore, Don was sensitive in how he handled it, and Twitter showed that it is still the land of the immature and brain dead.
