Cosby Accuser: National Enquirer Killed My Story, Too

It wasn’t quite a “catch and kill,” but Bill Cosby accuser Beth Ferrier knows what it’s like to have her story buried by the National Enquirer.

Only in her case, the tabloid did it in exchange for getting an exclusive interview with Cosby, which it ran in March 2005, not long after authorities decided not to charge him criminally for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in January 2004. Last week Cosby was convicted on all counts against him over Constand.

So Ferrier says she was not surprised when she read recently how the Enquirer purchased the life rights of former Playboy magazine Playmate Karen McDougal, who claims she had a nine-month affair with Donald Trump in 2006 and 2007. The Enquirer never ran the story.
