Jay Leno on Bill Cosby: ‘I Don’t Know Why It’s So Hard to Believe Women’

21 January 2015 11:42 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Miami — Jay Leno left no doubt where he stands on the Bill Cosby controversy with his remarks during a Q&A session at the Natpe conference on Wednesday.

“I don’t know why it’s so hard to believe women,” Leno told comedian Tom Papa, who moderated the conversation. “You to go Saudi Arabia and you need two women to testify against a man. Here you need 25.”

Leno noted that the Cosby scandal was driven by a viral video made by comedian Hannibal Buress. He cited that as an example of how news and information is getting out unfiltered these days, which he said was a good thing.

Buress “made a flat-out statement that reverberated around the world,” Leno said. “On any other media that would have been edited. People are getting news unfiltered now.”

Leno had kind words for Jimmy Fallon and Larry Wilmore during the wide-ranging Q&A. »
