The Real Stories of Victims 1 & 2 Reveal the Absurdity of the Media's Case Against Paterno

In a rational world, the numerous revelations in Jerry Sandusky scandal of the past week or so would have been headline news because the entire media narrative created against Joe Paterno would have been reported as dramatically collapsing. If the media was remotely fair or cared about actual facts, there would already be numerous apologies and calls for the Paterno statue to be restored to a place of honor.

In case you missed it (thanks to the media blackout it would be very easy for you to have done so), here is a quick review.

If a Bombshell Goes Off in the Forest and Sara Ganim Misreports It, Does it Still Make a Sound?

Monday afternoon Pultizer Prize winning reporter Sara Ganim (the media darling of the Sandusky scandal) published an article that, in a rational world, has information which would have exploded into the national news and instantly shaken the entire narrative of Penn State/Joe Paterno’s role in the entire affair to its core.

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.

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.

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.
