ESPN's Penn State Legend Todd Blackledge Gives "Framing Paterno" His Most Extensive Interview on the Topic

Todd Blackledge, the quarterback of Joe Paterno's first official national championship team and a prominent commentator on ESPN, has done his most extensive interview to date on the issues surrounding the Jerry Sandusky scandal with John Ziegler.

Rodney Erickson is a Gutless Idiot Who Admitted Being Forced to Sign the NCAA Consent Decree

I have had a lot of very strange and unique experiences in my career when it comes to trying to confront public figures and hold them accountable when no one else in the media would for things that they have done wrong. I have gone after the likes of O.J. Simpson, Robert Blake, Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, Barbara Boxer, Katie Couric, David Keene, Tiger Woods, Mark Schwartz, and Mark Emmert (among others), but I have never had an experience quite like what occurred when I went to “visit” Penn State President Rodney Erickson last night.

My Review of the "Costas Tonight" Special on Freeh Report

My disdain for the media is pretty well known. In fact, I doubt anyone as ever been seen by more people on American TV while attacking the hosts of the very shows they were on than me. I am also a pessimist by nature and, because of that, I had low expectations for the "Costas Tonight" special on NBC Sports Network, even though I had spoken to Bob Costas twice about the subject after my interview with Jerry Sandusky.

What The Media Coverage of the Boston Bombings Tells Us About PSU/Sandusky

I am a big believer that, if you look closely enough, the truth will almost always eventually reveal itself, even if it ends up happening in unusual ways. Such is how I see the media coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings when it comes to evaluating the legitimacy (or lack thereof) of how the media reacted to Penn State’s “role” in the Jerry Sandusky scandal, as well as an important element of what actually happened in that case.

Our Statement on the Release of the Indentity of "Victim 2"

There has been a remarkable amount of media speculation regarding our plans to release all of the information we have about who "Victim 2" is and why it is extremely relevant to the case against Joe Paterno and Penn State in the Jerry Sandusky scandal. There are a few things which need to be made very clear about this issue.

Response to the Paterno Family Statement on the Sandusky Interview

I was shocked and saddened to to read that the Paterno family PR arm, led by Scott Paterno, has decided that, for some inexplicable reason, it is in their self interest to rush to judgment about both the content of my interview with Jerry Sandusky as well as how it will be disseminated.
