Barbara Bowman, who has accused comedian Bill Cosby of rape, says some major media outlets ignored her allegations for years.
"I wish that people had been paying closer attention," Bowman told Brian Stelter.
And "I wish that there were more gutsy journalists to take that on," she added. "But I also - I have to have some empathy for the journalists - because I think that sometimes there are situations when they feel their hands are tied."
Bowman said it is "a little bit on the irresponsible side" for NBC to be developing a new sitcom with Cosby at the center. "I think they need to take a good, hard look at what is important to them," she added.
