First, it dramatically conveys the big news about Bill Cosby. (Read the story inside the paper online here: "Bill Cosby found guilty of drugging, sexually assaulting Andrea Constand.")

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