NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – While serving time for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman at his estate, Bill Cosby took to Twitter in recent days to ask his followers to support black media outlets instead of mainstream ones like CNN and the New York Times.

In the first tweet on Thanksgiving, Cosby referred to himself as “The Educator & The Political Prisoner” and used the hashtag #FarFromFinished, which is also the name of one of his concert specials. He also wished his followers a happy Thanksgiving and said they should “be thankful for the Native Americans.”

In a second tweet, he posted a link to an article on the Black Press USA website entitled “Bill Cosby Spoke From the Prison and the Whole World Listened.” The story features the first exclusive interview with Cosby since he was imprisoned.

He also wrote that “the truth is in the pudding,” a possible reference to his longtime job as the Jell-O pudding spokesman.

In a third tweet on Black Friday, he wrote: “No longer should we succumb to the fear of many mainstream media outlets like Associated Press, CNN, NBC, New York Times, Washington Post & Radar Online just to name a few. Black Friday+Black People = BlackPressUSA.”
