Our Full_Page Ad in the Sunday Centre Daily Times: By the Numbers, What the Media Didn't Tell You About the Sandusky Case

On Sunday February 23rd, 2014, www.FramingPaterno.com purchased a full-page ad in the Sunday Centre Daily Times. The purpose was to explain how the basics of the case against Jerry Sandusky have been misunderstood and this is why it is clear there was no cover up at Penn State.

Here is what the ad looked like:


Media Malpractice Again: An E-mail Exchange With USA Today Which Will Blow Your Mind

There is probably no greater proof of the utter insanity of this entire upside-down story than that by far the most favorable mainstream media coverage of "Penn State" in the Sandusky story is perhaps the most obvious example of "media malpractice" in this entire saga.

I am referring to the column posted by USA Today this week by Jeffery Sonnenfeld which read literally like a love letter to the Penn State Board of Trustees. Here is that column which, to anyone who has been following the story, seemed like a parody:

Exclusive: The Real Story Behind the Movie "Happy Valley" and Matt Sandusky

Until now, I have, for several reasons, refrained from writing about the January 19th premiere of the "Happy Valley" documentary at the Sundance Film Festival. First, I wanted to accumulate all of the information that I could be before writing. Second, I was scheduled to meet with Jerry and Dottie Sandusky in prison the week after that. And thirdly, I have quite a personal history with this film and I wanted to take some time to think about how best to articulate my knowledge and thoughts on all of it.

O'Brien's Departure & "Paterno People": The Case That David Jones Lied, May Have Broken the Law, & Why it Matters

Three of the primary principles on which I have been guided through this crazy odyssey are the following:

1) Whether out of incompetence, corruption, or both, the news media will almost always screw this story up.

2) Stories which do not make any sense are probably not accurate.

3) The truth of any matter will eventually come out in some way as long as you look hard and have enough patience.

Lessons From 2013

I have often written about how differently the rest of the world sees the Sandusky scandal than those of us who have actually closely followed it. For everyone else, almost nothing significant happened in 2013 (unless you count Bill O'Brien jumping ship at the very last moment), and yet we actually learned an awful lot in this past year. In fact, I will always remember the year 2013 as the one in which we probably figured out what really happened in the Sandusky scandal, and yet almost no one cared.

Release of Graham Spanier Full ABC Interview & Response to Baldwin Testimony is Yet Another Bombshell

2013 in now finishing with yet another "bombshell," which, in a rational world, would significantly alter the media's narrative about what really happened in the Sandusky scandal, but which the media itself will once again almost certainly ignore.

Text of Jerry Sandusky Follow-Up Letter on Absurd Victim 9 Claims

I was wondering if you thought about contacting Jay Paterno and/or some of the other coaches to ask them if Joe would have ever had lunch with the accuser and me. If nothing else, maybe the Paternos will realize how ridiculous the allegations have been. It might mean more for others to comment on how ridiculous this is.

Victim 9 Is Now Proven To Have Lied About Joe Paterno, But Hardly Anyone Will Care

A couple of weeks ago, the lawyers for Victim 9 in the Jerry Sandusky case announced that they were not accepting a settlement and were suing Penn State for millions of dollars. The lawsuit provided at least one morsel of “information” which the attorneys had to know the media could not possibly resist and which they also knew would make Penn State’s pocketbook open up even wider than normal.

Our Evening with Buzz Bissinger

Late last week I traveled from California to Reading, Pennsylvania so that I could, along with many like-minded supporters, witness/protest/provoke author Buzz Bissinger as he spoke at the Penn State Berks campus. I did this because if all of the media members who have been outrageously wrong in their commentary about the Sandusky scandal, Bissinger has been by far the worst. I wrote about why I feel that way in a previous post here.

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.

Based on what we now know, exactly two years later, about the Jerry Sandusky scandal, it is clear that the “Big Lie Theory” played a critical role in how the story was allowed to develop, especially with regard to the blame for it placed on Joe Paterno.
