New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Saturday that he would push for legislation requiring both public and private universities in the state to enact a uniform sexual assault policy requiring "affirmative consent" in their definitions of consensual sex. Speaking at New York University in Manhattan, Cuomo, a Democrat, said codifying a sexual assault policy across all campuses would make it easier for victims to report crimes. The "yes-means-yes" standard defines sexual consent between people as an affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity. Cuomo said on Saturday that the proposed New York law would be binding on both public and private universities, unlike the California law, which is limited to state-funded institutions.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Basketball analyst and former NBA player Greg Anthony was suspended indefinitely by CBS on Saturday after he was arrested on a charge of soliciting a prostitute in a Washington, D.C., hotel room.
CBS Sports basketball analyst Greg Anthony has been suspended indefinitely by the network, a CBS spokesperson said on Saturday, a day after he was arrested in Washington, D.C., on a charge of soliciting prostitution. "Greg Anthony will not be working again for CBS this season," the spokesperson said in an email. "I will work to regain the trust that I have lost, and the first step is saying that I am sorry." Anthony played 11 seasons in the National Basketball Association before joining CBS in 2008 as lead studio analyst for the network's college basketball coverage, according to his network biography. He had been scheduled to work CBS' broadcast of the Michigan State-Maryland basketball game in College Park, Maryland, on Saturday.
