Male-Skewing Jury Convicted Cosby

According to AdAge, Friday's Daily News front page does three things well:

First, it dramatically conveys the big news about Bill Cosby.

Second, it draws attention to the fact that a male-skewing jury convicted Cosby. (The composition of the panel was the subject of much pre-trial maneuvering and battling by the lawyers on each side.)

And third, it dispenses with one of the go-to means by which some men attempt to dismiss sexual assault claims—i.e., the "He said, she said" line that implicitly asks "Who are you going to believe?"

With regard to Bill Cosby and Andrea Constand, the Daily News bluntly points out, seven men and five women believed Constand.
