This website is dedicated to compiling and analyzing the evidence that an out-of-control news media created a false narrative in the Jerry Sandusky scandal, which effectively framed Joe Paterno for crimes he obviously didn't commit and of which he may have had very limited knowledge. This has resulted in an unjust destruction of a man's entire life work and legacy, while doing incredible damage to a university and football program which almost certainly did not deserve the unprecedented and illogical punishments they received. At the very least, we have witnessed a colossal rush to judgment.
This site is NOT a defense of child sexual abuse. This site is also NOT remotely based on a conspiracy theory (the term "Framing" is meant figuratively, and not literally), but rather the notion that an incompetent, ratings-driven media, along with some devious politicians, all acted in their own perceived self interest to tell this story in way not consistent with the facts. This perspective is outlined in this extensive blog post as well as this one.
We ARE dedicated to exposing the truth in this case and this website is the home of a proposed documentary film on this subject, "The Framing of Joe Paterno."
This site is intended to combine the efforts of the most ardent "Web Defenders" (since the mainstream media won't allow anyone to take a position like ours) of Joe Paterno, including John Ziegler, Marc Rubin, Barry Bozeman, Ray Blehar, Eileen Morgan and Walter C. Uhler. If others would like to join us in this cause, they are welcome to do so.

Part One of Our Plan..... Expose the Media Bias....
In order to quantify the impact of the incredibly one-sided media coverage, we commissioned a scientific nationwide poll to determine the public's knowledge of the story. Thanks to remarkable support from those who want to see the truth finally come out here, we were able to fulfill our promise. And now...
Our public press release for the poll can be read here.
John Ziegler's Op-ed column for several Pennsylvania newspapers can be read here.
The Media Research Council's article can be read here.
The Penn State student paper article can be read here.
Listen to an awesome interview on the poll with KDKA CBS Pittsburgh here
Listen to another good PA radio interview dealing with several of our activities here
Part Two of Our Plan...
We have designed a T-shirt (seen to the right) which, thanks to your donations, we gave away to almost 1,000 Penn State students to wear at the first home game and the rest went to the Rally for Resignations..
Here is an exclusive MUST SEE VIDEO on the "cover up"!!! This is exactly what would have had to have happened if the Freeh Report is correct. Spread the truth and the laughs!
You can listen to Kevin Slaten interview John Ziegler about the video here
John Ziegler issues $10,000 Charity Challenge to Media on next "Penn State" Trial...
Will the media back up their beliefs for the sake of the victims of sexual abuse??
Read the INCREDIBLE E-mail exchange Ziegler had over this topic with the Program Director at the two biggest talk stations in Philadelphia (both of which have been EXTREMELY anti-Paterno/truth). See his arrogance and ignorance here.
Even more remarkably, read about what happened when Ziegler was invited on to one of the very shows that Program Director told him he had been banned from!! Numerous FCC complaints have already been filed because Buzz Bissinger dropped the F bomb!!
The weekend of Penn State's first home game we will be in State College starting to shoot for our proposed documentary.
Articles about this development have been printed in two major local papers, including here and here.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR REMARKABLE SUPPORT!! PLEASE KEEP SHARING THE WEBSITE WITH FRIENDS!!
