Two Years Later: What You Have to Believe to Buy the Media's Narrative

The “Big Lie Theory,” which history credits to Adolf Hitler, is based on the notion that the larger the deception the more people will be prone to believe it because they won’t be able to comprehend how anyone could get away with such a brazen act of dishonesty.

Exclusive: Jerry Sandusky Responds in Writing to the Penn State Settlements

Jerry Sandusky has previously told me in our prison interview  (pages 11 and 12) that Penn State should not be paying the victims, and specifically Victim 2, in his case. 

Last week I asked him about several of the most high-profile settlements which have just been announced by Penn State. Although he did not respond directly my questions, he did react in general to the settlements in a very substantive way.
