Why Bill Cosby’s case has race, gender and celebrity echoes of the O.J. Simpson trial

Hosted by

After 52 hours of deliberation, the jury in Bill Cosby’s sexual assault case ended in mistrial Saturday, after the jury found itself deadlocked. Cosby could face a new trial as soon as October. His defense team says he is vindicated. But prosecutors are calling for more women to step forward. The high-profile trial has brought up themes of celebrity, race, gender, and media attention.
