An Open Letter to the News Media: How to Do a Hit Piece on John Ziegler

Dear Media:

I know you guys better than I even know myself. Therefore, I would like to give you some advice as you decide how to cover/attack me as we soon release portions of our recent news-making interview with Jerry Sandusky and I am scheduled to appear live on the Today Show this Monday with Matt Lauer.

Our REALLY Exclusive Interview With Jerry Sandusky

Why I Am Now Very Concerned About the Katie Couric/Sue Paterno Interview

When I first heard that Sue Paterno would be finally breaking her silence with an interview with Katie Couric, I thought that the choice made some sense. Having spoken to her about some of these issues, I was confident that Sue would be a compelling and sympathetic figure who would do a very good job of telling her husband's side of the story. Couric has a large female audience and would be unlikely to attack a popular widow who has never been accused of doing anything wrong.

A List of the Most "Under Known" Facts of the Sandusky Scandal

Probably the toughest thing about convincing people that the media sold them a bill of goods about what really happened in the Sandusky scandal is that they usually think they know the story and they have created a very powerful narrative in their head. That narrative is largely false, but it can’t be removed from the minds of most people with just one fact. Instead, like a painting made up of thousands of brush strokes, the faulty ones need to be removed and replaced, one by one, until a very different image is left to remain in their mind’s eye.

The Media Has Now Reached the Point Where Pursuing the "Truth" is a Negative

At this past weekend’s “Upon Further Review” conferences hosted by Franco Harris in Philadelphia and Washington, DC the level of optimism among almost everyone involved was palpable. There seems to be a pervasive feeling that we had endured the worst storms that this story is going to offer and that things were starting to go our way. The wind may not yet be at our back, but most people seemed to think that at least the weather is getting significantly more hospitable.

CNN Can't Even Cover Paterno Memorial Without Massive Bias

As if we needed any more proof that their is a clear agenda in the news media against Joe Paterno which has nothing to do with the the truth, CNN even continued you their irrational vendetta with their coverage of the memorial service on the one year anniversary of his death.

Here is how CNN covered the candle light vigil at the mural on Inspiration Way.

Penn State Legend & ESPN Analyst Todd Blackledge Declares that Media/Freeh/NCAA Mistreated Paterno

In one of the most significant developments in our movement in quite some time, former Penn State national championship quarterback and current ESPN analyst, Todd Blackledge, took to Twitter today to honor the memory of his coach Joe Paterno on the anniversary of his death.

Blackledge also used the occasion to let his strong opinions be known about how he now believes that that Paterno was mistreated by the media, the Penn State BOT, Louis Freeh and the NCAA.

In his first tweet Blackledge wrote:

What Manti Te'o has Taught Us About How ESPN Determines Veracity

One of the most fascinating (and frustrating) elements of the bizarre Manti Te’o “fake girlfriend” story is how the media, and specifically ESPN, have handled the issue of determining whether Te’o was a “victim” or a “perpetrator” of the “hoax.”

Why It Was So Critical For Louis Freeh to Link 1998 Investigation to Paterno/Penn State

 

WHY WAS GOING BACK TO THE 1998 INVESTIGATION SO CRUCIAL?

By Eileen Morgan

Q. Why did the Attorney General (AG) and Louis Freeh focus on the 1998 investigation of Jerry Sandusky and force this to be the crucial starting point?

What Te'o, Armstrong, and Steubenville Say About the Media Coverage of Paterno/Penn State

It is probably a sad commentary on my life, but few things give me more pleasure than seeing our increasingly corrupt news media be exposed for the fraudulent prostitutes that they are.

This has been a good week for me.
