Bill Cosby implies racism, revenge behind sexual assault allegations

Bill Cosby is publicly addressing his sexual assault scandal for the first time in more than two years.

Radio host Michael Smerconish says he interviewed Cosby for 30 minutes.

In clips released Monday, Cosby seems to suggest racism and revenge were behind the allegations against him.

In criminal cases, defendants and their families usually stay silent. Not Bill Cosby.

Ahead of the trial, which starts next month, his camp has been steadily ramping up a public relations offensive, trying to soften his image and cast him as a victim of a witch hunt, reports CBS News correspondent Jericka Duncan.
