Many of the rape allegations against Bill Cosby have a common thread: drugging and manipulation. This YouTube video emphasizes that many of the women who've accused Cosby of sexual assault share similar accounts as well as concerns that no one would believe their story.

The video—a response to a recent New York Times article that reveals Cosby's longtime legal strategy to combat the accusations—compiles all the interviews and accounts given by his alleged rape victims. That includes Janice Dickinson, Joan Tarshis, Victoria Valentino and Barbara Bowman.

The description on YouTube reads:

It has now been revealed that a team of lawyers and publicists worked tirelessly to keep [Bill Cosby's] image pristine for decades, by silencing alleged victims and keeping the media from reporting their claims, the New York Times reports.

That apparently all-male team includes $850-an-hour Hollywood lawyer Martin Singer (whose clients include Charlie Sheen and Arnold Schwarzenegger), former William Morris agent Norman Brokaw, his publicist son David, and New York lawyer John P Schmitt.

At the end of the video, there's a clip of Cosby's 1991 interview with Larry King where the comedian describes putting Spanish Fly in a woman's drink.
