Is Don Lemon’s question out of line or a valid question?
CNN TV anchor Don Lemon is being criticized by some, after he made what some suggest an inappropriate suggestion/question, during a highly-viewed sit-down interview.
Here’s what happened. Lemon interviewed Joan Tarshis, one of several women who recently accused Bill Cosby of rape. She said the incident happened when she was 19 years old. She explained:
I said, ‘If you have sex with me, your wife is going to know it because you probably will infect her. I thought I was very clever in saying that, but he was more clever. And instead he made me have oral sex with him, which was really just horrible.
So what’s the big fuss? Lemon asked if she considered biting Cosby’s penis, to prevent the alleged assault. Here’s the transcript of the conversation, along with a clip (on the next page).
