Bill Cosby's Biographer Admits He Was 'Wrong' To Omit Rape Claims

Mark Whitaker, the author of 'Cosby: His Life and Times', says he was wrong to leave out the rape claims from the book.

Whitaker has taken heat for not even a mention of the claims of the civil lawsuit against Cosby in his book that is marketed as being based on "extensive research and in-depth interviews with Cosby and more than sixty of his closest friends and associates."

In it, the author even looked at the roots of Cosby's controversial stands on race and said "the Cosby effect" was in part responsible for paving the way for a black president.

New York Times' writer David Carr criticized Whitaker for ignoring the claims in his almost 500-page biography.

"David, you are right," Whitaker admitted on Monday. "I was wrong to not deal with the sexual assault charges against Cosby and pursue them more aggressively."

"I am following new developments and will address them at the appropriate time. If true the stories are shocking and horrible."
