Bill Cosby's Lawyers Warn Reporters About Reporting on the Rape Allegations

Needless to say, it hasn't been a good week for Bill Cosby. More women have come forward to say the legendary comic raped them and NBC, Netflix and others have cancelled planned Cosby shows or appearances.

But, according to the comedian's lawyers, it's not Cosby that should be worried, but the journalists covering his alleged crimes.

In a letter, Cosby attorney Martin Singer categorically denying the claims made this week by model Janice Dickenson and cautioning "in the strongest possible terms" against repeating her story, which Singer called "an outrageous defamatory lie."

"If you recklessly publish the Story instead of checking readily available information demonstrating its falsity," wrote Singer, "all those involved will be exposed to very substantial liability."

"You proceed at your own peril," he added.

The AP has released a video that shows Cosby bullying a reporter earlier this month and trying to get part of the interview squashed:
