Eight other women who say they were abused by Cosby since the 1960s have a civil suit pending in U.S. District Court in Springfield.
Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee, accused him of drugging and sexually assaulting her in January 2004 at his Pennsylvania mansion. Cosby has pled not guilty.
Bill Cosby suggested that racism may be partly responsible for the dozens of sexual misconduct allegations that have been lodged against him. Still, he said he wanted to speak out for his remaining fans.
'So it's not all, not every, but I do think that there's some'.
"Once again, I go back to my lawyers", he said.
Cosby's publicist told CNN he set up the interview to let listeners hear the "passion and concern" in Cosby's voice and to remind them of who Cosby is and who he always has been.
"I owe a great deal to people who saw things in me". "He has a strong mind, and he's capable". However, he said he has "never, never" lost the support of his wife, Camille.
As for his health, Cosby revealed that glaucoma has left him legally blind. Asked to respond, he said: "It could be".
Those that are following the trial know that Bill Cosby's accusers include a few times race.
Russia, Saudi Arabia back extension of oil output cuts
OPEC agreed at a meeting in November 2016 to reduce oil production by 1.2 million barrels a day from the October levels. West Texas Intermediate ( WTI ) crude futures were at $49.10, up 25 cents, or 0.51 percent from their last settlement.
Smerconish brought up the EXTREMELY OBVIOUS FACT THAT I'M YELLING FOR ABSOLUTE EMPHASIS BECAUSE THIS IS ALL SO RIDICULOUS: COSBY'S ACCUSERS HAVE BEEN BOTH BLACK AND WHITE, SO COME THE ONNNNN (admittedly my words, not Smerconish's).
SMERCONISH: Do you agree with that?
Bill Cosby replies, "It could be".
In the 30-minute interview, Smerconish attempted to get some details about the trial, but the comedian was mostly silent on the matter, deferring to his lawyers and saying he wasn't at liberty to discuss them. He grew heated only when Smerconish asked whether he believed all of his accusers were lying.
"Things were rescinded and I'd like to get those things back, because the people who chose to make the decision then saw they made a mistake", he said. "My father has been publicly lynched in the media", Ensa said.
"I still feel that I have an very bad lot to offer in terms of my writing, in terms of my performance", he said.
During a recent interview, the host played a snippet of her comments claiming the charges against Cosby stem from racism.
On Monday, the former Cosby Show star's daughter, Ensa Cosby, said on The Breakfast Club that her father was unfairly targeted because of "racism," and he quickly spoke out to agree with her, in his first interview in almost two years.
Asked if he agreed with Ensa's analysis, Cosby told Smerconish: "Could be".
