Potential Cosby jurors are asked about #MeToo bias

Jury selection began on Monday in comedian Bill Cosby's criminal trial, the first high-profile sexual-assault trial of the #MeToo era. Cosby sat in the Montgomery County Courthouse, as judge Steven T. O'Neill questioned 120 potential jurors on a variety of potential conflicts.
