On a day when headlines should have been screaming about what is really big time news with Emperor Obama’s NSA Stasi using their Big Brother surveillance mandate to spy on Congress, the corrupt panty-sniffing media chose to report on celebrity sex scandals. Far too many Americans can’t locate Iraq, Iran, Syria or even the freaking United States on a map but they sure as hell understand how bad it is when someone who is a famous gets accused of putting Mr. wiggly into the dirty place. So it was with great fanfare that the blanket coverage hit televisions, newspapers and websites like a tabloid shit tsunami after Bill Cosby was formally charged with sexual assault. It was a moment that was so satisfying to liberals that the crusading feminist attorney Gloria Allred – who is representing many of the “victims” – crowed that “seeing him criminally charged and having to face a trial is the best Christmas present they have ever received.”

CNN reports that “Bill Cosby arraigned; TV star’s attorneys vow to fight ‘unjustified’ charge”:

Hours after Bill Cosby set foot in a Pennsylvania courtroom to face sexual assault charges, the comedian’s attorneys called the criminal case against him “unjustified” and vowed to fight it.

“The charge by the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office came as no surprise, filed 12 years after the alleged incident and coming on the heels of a hotly contested election for this county’s DA during which this case was made the focal point,” Cosby’s attorneys said in a statement released after his arraignment Wednesday. “Make no mistake, we intend to mount a vigorous defense against this unjustified charge and we expect that Mr. Cosby will be exonerated by a court of law.”

Cosby, whose legacy as a comedian has been tarnished by multiple accusations of sexual assault, faces three felony charges of aggravated indecent assault in the case, which is tied to a 2004 accusation in Montgomery County.

Looking frail in a gray sweater and carrying a cane, he walked arm and arm with attorneys into a courthouse there Wednesday and appeared to have difficulty seeing as he was guided to a courtroom seat.

The judge set his bail at $1 million and ordered him to surrender his passport. Cosby did not enter a plea. Asked whether he understood the proceedings, Cosby responded, “yes,” in a booming voice with a smile on his face.

Following the brief arraignment, Cosby went to the police station in Cheltenham Township, where he was booked per protocol. Cosby posted bail and left the police station.

There was a more than a bit of smugness in the reportage as a successful black man who happens to be something of a conservative was hauled into court in a spectacle that was a slam dunk media feeding frenzy in an otherwise slow news week – outside of the brewing constitutional crisis that is. The Wall Street Journal bombshell that the Obama regime was using the NSA to spy on members of Congress – many of whom were the biggest cheerleaders when it was done to ordinary Americans – should have been the lead story everywhere given it’s grave implications. It was an abuse of power that violates the very spirit of the Constitution and the now quaint system of “checks and balances” that are the bedrock of the republic. The surveillance of the pigs in Congress – who happened to get caught up while Obama’s Stasi was also spying on Israeli leaders – is a stunning kick in the balls to the separation of powers and illustrative of El Presidente’s flagrant disregard for the law that makes Richard M. Nixon look like a rank amateur. Yet it barely received any coverage at all while poor old Bill Cosby is everywhere.

It used to be that Americans could be proud of having a free press but considering that in the watchdog group Reporters Without Borders last official press freedom index, the U.S. of A placed a putrid 46th – behind longtime bastions of liberty like Romania, El Salvador and South Africa. But hey, at least we are still ahead of our allies in the war on radical Islamic terrorism in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and Turkey although the 2015 edition has yet to be released.
