Bill Cosby pleaded Friday for black journalists to remain neutral in reporting the multiple rape allegations against him.

When asked about the more than two dozen allegations of drugging and rape, Mr. Cosby told the New York Post, “Let me say this: I only expect the black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism, and when you do that you have to go in with a neutral mind.”

The comedian sounded upbeat on the phone but wouldn’t address the allegations specifically, The Post reported. He praised his wife, Camille Cosby, for remaining strong amid the chaos.

“Love and the strength of womanhood,” he said. “Let me say it again, love and the strength of womanhood. And you could reverse it: the strength of womanhood and love.”

Mr. Cosby then cut off the conversation, saying, “They don’t want me talking to the media,” The Post reported.
