‘Truth is all we’re looking for.’ Newsroom reacts to a bombshell in the Bill Cosby trial

‘Truth is all we’re looking for.’ Newsroom reacts to a bombshell in the Bill Cosby trial“There went any chance of a guilty verdict.” “This is why I’m skeptical in these high profile cases.” Model Janice Dickinson says she fabricated part of her Bill Cosby assault story in her memoir, and Newsroom readers are shocked.

Dickinson took the stand on Thursday in the Cosby sexual assault retrial. In her testimony, the former reality star recounted a 1982 incident in a Lake Tahoe, Calif., hotel room, in which she claims she was drugged and raped by the comedian. Cosby’s attorney, Tom Mesereau, confronted Dickinson, pointing out the description of the assault in her 2002 memoir, “No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World’s First Supermodel,” is different. She responded: “It's all a fabrication there because I wanted the paycheck for my kids.”

Dickinson admitted she concocted stories for her book and that her ghostwriter took “poetic license” with her life story. She strongly maintains her claim that she was assaulted by Cosby, responding, “They weren’t there! And you weren’t there! And I’m telling the real story!”

Her testimony has left Newsroom readers puzzled and questioning Dickinson’s credibility. “A lot of people have a hard time telling the truth these days,” one commenter wrote. Another chimed in: “When you admit to fabricating stories for money, you no longer hold any of the little credibility you had.”

Dickinson testified she cut out the story of being sexually assaulted by Cosby after her publisher warned her it could ruin her career.
Cosby’s first trial ended in a mistrial in June when a jury could not reach a verdict.

South Carolina Republicans push bill that would allow secession if the US violates the Second Amendment

South Carolina Republicans push bill that would allow secession if the US violates the Second AmendmentSouth Carolina Republicans have introduced a bill that would give the state capital the power to secede from the United States if the federal government violates the Second Amendment and begins seizing legally purchased guns. The bill, which went to the state’s House Judiciary Committee Thursday, is unlikely to make it through the legislature this session, but its introduction sends a powerful message at a time when the US is seeing an intense debate about gun control. “The general assembly shall convene to consider whether to secede from the United States based upon the federal government’s unconstitutional violation of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution if the federal government confiscates legally purchased firearms in this state,” the bill reads.
