CNN Says They Didn’t Run A Smear Campaign Against Bill Cosby

Via TMZ reports:

CNN has fired back at Bill Cosby’s lawyer … defending it’s decision NOT to include accuser Beverly Johnson’s live-in boyfriend as part of a network special, calling him a criminal with an ax to grind.

TMZ broke the story … Cosby’s lawyer fired off a nasty letter to the network Friday, claiming it was rigging a story about model Beverly Johnson — who accused Cosby of drugging her in the mid-80s — without interviewing the man she lived with from 2006-2009.

The lawyer claimed during that time Johnson never mentioned the drugging and only heaped praise on Cosby.

But in a scathing retort, CNN says the boyfriend — Mark Burk — was not around when the alleged drugging occurred. The letter also minimizes the relevance that Johnson said bad things to Burk about Cosby.

What’s more … CNN says Cosby’s lawyer, Marty Singer, failed to mention Burk has a criminal history … multiple restraining orders keeping him away from Johnson and threats to kill her.

And CNN says Burk isn’t credible because he filed a bogus lawsuit against Johnson for palimony.

Do you think CNN should have fired back at Bill Cosby??
