Sandusky Verdict Coverage Reveals Massive Media Malpractice

On the surface, the largely drama free sentencing of Jerry Sandusky would seem to be a strange event for the news media to completely botch their coverage. After all, the date had been set for months and there was no ambiguity about what was going to happen. In other words, there were no surprises or tight time constraints on which media members could plausibly blame any blatant errors. 

A Handy Resource: The Biggest Media Myths of the Jerry Sandusky Scandal

For the Uninitiated: The Biggest Media Myths of the Jerry Sandusky Scandal

Since details don’t seem to really matter anymore, here is the “Cliff Notes” version of how the media created a false narrative (which they refuse to correct) in the Jerry Sandusky scandal. You might think of this as “Why Nearly Everything You Think You Know About the Penn State Story is False.” Please feel free to share it as a resource with those whose minds you are trying to open about what really happened here.

Why Buzz Bissinger Is A Disgrace to Journalism and Humanity

In my long career as a TV sportscaster, radio talk show host, television commentator, and documentary filmmaker, I have probably participated in well over 1,000 talk shows (including almost all of the highest-rated national TV shows). I can say that, without a doubt, I have never taken part in one which was a greater indictment of the host, the industry, and the sad state of journalism than yesterday’s Buzz Bissinger radio show on WPHT in Philadelphia.

The Definitive Case That Mike McQueary's Story Is Not to be Believed

Of the many absolutely incredible aspects of the Jerry Sandusky scandal, clearly the most underrated is that the direct connection to Penn State hangs on the remarkably tenuous story of one man (Mike McQueary) and about four words badgered out of an 84 year old coach in poor health who may have just been trying to make sure he didn’t harm the prosecution’s case.

Proof That Freeh Framed Joe Paterno

by Barry Bozeman and Ray Blehar (Sandusky Second Mile Sex Scandal)

The FactFreeh Fiction contains several examples of the most egregious stretching of slim "evidence" to construct absurd conclusions that Joe Paterno and PSU were culpable in covering up for Jerry Sandusky.  

One of the most incredible descriptions of that can be found in Freeh on page 49 in this Freeh pdf and find the 2nd and 3rd paragraphs.

How the Media’s Intimidation & Circular Logic Created a “Perfect Storm” Against the Truth

Of the many infuriatingly illogical aspects of how the Jerry Sandusky scandal has played out, the most maddening may be that each media misstep has created the next one. Together they have formed a tidal wave of momentum which has intimidated and stifled any voices of opposition and created the misperception that there is no question that justice has already been served. This has also allowed for unreasonable punishments to be enforced without even basic due process.

How the Media May Have Framed Joe Paterno

Regardless of what the final facts eventually say about what Joe Paterno knew and when he knew it about Jerry Sandusky’s criminal behavior (contrary to what the media has told you, they aren’t in yet and I have confronted very anti-Paterno "reporters" who admit this privately), the media coverage of him has been as unfair as any I have ever seen. In some ways, the media coverage of Joe Paterno has combined some of the worst elements of both the reporting of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the 2008 presidential election.
