comedyhype.com/ - Many people have discussed Bill Cosby's previous attempt to purchase the NBC network, but do you know why? For a new 'Here's Why', we take a look at what the now in-prisoned pioneer's most boldest move. Written by Jonathan Cofield. Instagram: @ComedyHype & Twitter: @ComedyHype_.

  • It’s obvious that he was extremely hated so much that multiple efforts to bring him down were enforced. He’s not one of the stereo types from “birth of a nation 1915”.

  • Like so many pioneering Black Male innovators, rarely do you have your whole community backing you up when you're trying to do something for the people. Typical outcome, Marcus Garvey his own people, Malcolm X his own people, contrary to popular belief many of "us" were against Martin Luther King. Black people sh*t on their leaders, but philosophically quote all their hood pop rappers. I'm done.

  • When he tried to deal with the worst corporate crook and shill, Cosby put a target on his back, and it was only a matter of time before the elites would find something to sic the mob thinking, hysterical, cancel culture, social screamers acting as tools of the elitists to economically enslave us... The elitists had to bring down Dick Gregory, Cosby, and others for not following race baiting... That put him at odds of the people destroying our elections, controlling our government, and stomping the guts out of the working middle class...

  • This is sad! I am saddened by Bill Cosby's tragedy. He was an influence of morality. But, lest he can truly vindicate himself, and sadly, it is unlikely, He has turned out to be the one who wags the finger. At times, that is the one you need to watch. I wish it was different. His conviction has changed everything for the worst! I hate saying this, but he is justly paying the price for his actions. I can't put this anymore delicately than this statement! Much of what Cosby has complished to uphold values has been undone. I was a fan of his work. I was a Fat Albert fan. I wonder what Albert Robinson would say to Bill Cosby, today. If he's anything like his animated character, he would be ashamed and furious with Bill Cosby!

  • and one of the reasons why he wanted to buy NBC because he he fell for the black people he want to put more black shows on TV and all and those allegations against him just like they had with Michael Jackson allegations you know they was trying to destroy him you know because he went to buy NBC so they put a bunch of women together and they made a lot it's like they put those two boys together and put them on HBO and pay Oprah Winfrey to be to be the host Michael Jackson accusers and then they put HBO special with Oprah Winfrey to make them look more bad the main is gone Michael Jackson is gone but they still dig up dirt so that's what they doing with Bill Cosby you know that's what they do with Bill Cosby and Oprah Winfrey chiefs no more white and then the white President Donald Trump in that's why that's why they put all that stuff on them Bill Cosby is a businessman to he's a businessman so that's why they destroy them they try and they destroy them and doing this to on all black people or black people I won't be surprised Eddie Murphy

  • The black celebrity bougousie should have financially invested in the Network and bought into Cosbys idea. Even now they should be looking to own a network, once they own it and control the content all the target market of the ads would tune in and raise ad revenue.

  • so what ended up happening/ GIANT CORPORATION, and ex MA BELL company, Comcast purchased 51% of NBC from GE. On December 3, 2009, Comcast announced they would purchase a 51% controlling stake in NBC Universal from General Electric (which would retain the remaining 49%) for $6.5 billion in cash and $9.1 billion in raised debt. GE used $5.8 billion from the deal to buy out Vivendi's 20% interest in NBC Universal.

  • Some of the information on here is inaccurate and misleading. This shows a biased view of Bill Cosby. Bill Cosby is and always will be a great American hero . His contributions to the higher education system alone spoke volumes. NBC would have doubled their revenue and it was a win win situation for everyone but it was have catapulted and launched the careers of many people of color and would have shifted the power over to people of color . The deal did not fall through because of the lack of investment capital but due to the lack of integrity of the powers surrounding the deal . It is no coincidence that allegations involving Cosby resurfaced as soon as Cosby announced his plans on television. The problem with most reporters and journalists is they lack the courage to give you the honest unbiased truth .

  • Pop-culture television is a narrative setting propaganda. Always has been. Whites are mostly portrayed as heroes while blacks are portrayed as thugs and criminals. Bill Cosby could see this and did everything he could to reverse it. He didn't care who you were if you were doing work that degraded blacks he would tell you to your face that it was destructive behavior. All of these rappers using the "N" word over the years have successfully brainwashed blacks into thinking it is okay to call each other n**ga. It irritates me every time I hear or see that word being used no matter what color the person's skin is. Richard Pryor became enlightened and banned the "N" word from his comedy routines which I thought was brilliant considering he was the pioneer of the foul mouth self-deprecating style of comedy. As for Cosby's personal life, I don't think he is completely innocent in regard to some of the rape stuff. However, I believe a significant number of women that came forward were paid to do so. They turned their consensual encounters with Cosby into rapes simply to destroy him and see to it he ended up where he is today. Cosby was on a mission to change the image of African American pop-culture in positive ways. It is a tragedy his efforts were not supported on a large scale.

  • The funny thing is that he is right in some form of way....... We as people, not black or white..... Just people have to take responsibility of are own action. Mainly in-house family situation. black men that are not home to make sure that they're kids are raise in the right way will more likely take someone life rub or kill someone because no structural guidance. Then the main 1 of all, Black Grabs in the barrel mentality, When one is doing well the other fine some way to talk crazy about them or say he's not shit instead of given them a great job or ask for help, All that energy is pass down through birth in the wound. when your pregnant with a child and you have all that bad or good energy that child is born with it all, He or She is a cycle of the parents. Cosby knows all of this, one or more the reason why he was trying to change this cycle within the black cultural. With more educational Tv for blacks, I remember the first time I saw DIFRENT WORLD it was the first time I ever thought about college. Because of him. Crazy how we do our own people. Look at us now, UZworld Instagram Facebook all craziness directly in your face where they can say told you so. Stupid

  • Listen: It hasn't even been that long, if you think about it. From the 80s until now, there has been unbeLIEvable decomposition of black culture and community---the likes of which shouldn't even be POSSIBLE for at least a century. Things got worse faster. And, it IS primarily our fault (no matter WHAT the white man has been doing). Furthermore, we did better when we had our own communities. The minute we integrated into greater American society, we lost our collective identity that was based heavily upon the things we traditionally passed down to each other--things our grandfathers and "greats" tried out, practiced, and knew were best for us. To be sure, segregation was immoral and sickening. But what if we had chosen to stick closer to each other than we did?...Cosby, CLEARLY was right. We were just too busy being "free" at the time to hear it.

  • I understand what he is trying to say, however he failed to realized there a many different types of blacks, and some are going to tell their experiences. Instead of preventing black comedians from doing their things, he probably should have invested in different genres of movies and clean acting comedians. So what he called stereo types might not be bad, example eating water melon its nothing wrong with that. While I don't use certain language I find it funny sometimes like Raw or Coming to America.

  • If ''television networks are for profit and not psychic value.'' The how is it that the white owned media has been inflicting psychic media on the populous and still make a profit. There are no hard and fast rules to run a network., apart from the ones made up to keep a portion of society barred from being mind controllers; such as Cosby

  • It is important that such wisdom not be lost, but rather encouraged, to assert the power of ownership, so vital when navigating sovereignty. In managing the transmission of all the images, and impressions of people; we must have control of our story and also, a source of viable, comprehensive media over which channel, our narrative is owned and by virtue of consistency, asserted.
