Writer wishes his Cosby story had more on sex assault claims

Philly Mag Daily Examiner
Stephanie Twining points out to Ta-Nehisi Coates that his Atlantic piece on Bill Cosby only briefly mentions sexual assault allegations. “Yes, I’m sorry about that. I really am,” he says. “I think that is an extremely valid and fair criticism to make. I would certainly cop to that, because I think that’s a significant issue that has not received much media play. And if you want to say, ‘Well, Ta-Nehisi, you just had 7,000 words and you gave it about 40?’ Yeah, that’s probably problematic.”
