Thank you for having John on. Awesome
Thanks for your feedback, Charlie. Glad you enjoyed it.
Paterno not giving McQueary the job is not "proof" a cover up didn't happen. I don't agree with that take. The proof that he didn't cover it up is quite simply the fact that he reported it. Why would you report it to your superiors if you wanted it covered up? And why did Curley/Schultz tell so many people about it if they wanted it covered up? If you believe a cover up occurred then you would have to believe that they were going around recruiting people to be involved in a cover up. It makes no sense. The emails in the Freeh Report clearly back up their version of the story and show that they were trying to handle this responsibly.
The key to understanding this whole thing is when McQueary is asked if he ever told people that he was uncomfortable around Sandusky and didn't want him in the football facility, Mike responds "yes" and insists that he told people that he didn't want Sandusky in the Lasch Building but wouldn't go into specifics. He is then asked if he told people this before or after investigators came to him in 2010 to talk about Jerry. Mike said it was AFTER and only AFTER investigators came to talk to him that he told people he didn't want Jerry around. Before investigators came to him he never said anything to anyone about Jerry. He also regularly attended Second Mile charity events. What you can obviously conclude from this is that he didn't think Jerry was a pedophile until these investigators came to him and got in his head.
Wow...this is really unbelievable. Higher authorities not involved before, need to be ASAP. I thought this didn't make logical sense in anyway from beginning. Now it seems they are dragging their feet hoping he dies in prison.
Great two part interview! Don't give up on this yet John. You are the only one who has this right. Like you said, this is bigger than just Sandusky. If this could happen to him, this could happen to anyone.
I have been following John Ziegler's coverage of this case almost from the beginning. I believe he is the only person in this entire case who has investigated everything and come to the right conclusions. I hope he doesn't give up comma and I hope that Common Sense eventually prevailed in this case. I also met Jerry Sandusky and I agree with John's conclusion that he is a very goofy guy. There is no way that he did these crimes. The John Surman angle makes perfect sense to me, and having lived in State College I know there were always people that wanted to take Joe Paterno down. The Republican ankle involving both Scott Paterno and those involved in the Attorney General's office and others also was extremely telling. Scott Paterno should never have represented his father at the Grand during hearing, and Joe at that point was too old and should have stepped down years earlier I believe. They destroy his reputation, or they tried to. I hope I live long enough to see this done as a documentary, and I hope Jon doesn't give up. Unfortunately, he is correct that there are so many angles to this Perfect Storm and lynching of a great man. I've spoken to many people who if they take the time actually follow the events as John has thoroughly investigating them one framing Paterno.com , they can only come to the conclusion that Joe was innocent ever, Jerry is probably innocent, although Jerry is guilty of making some very bad decisions. The other thing that is swept under the rug in this is the number of people assistant coaches at cetera whose entire careers were ruined by this non scandal. Thank you so much for covering this and allowing John to prevent it. Ironically two-and-a-half hours is not enough time to cover all of the various parts of this case that are so convoluted Lee wrong. Cynthia Baldwin is one of them missing links in the entire kerfuffle. And Scott Paterno's ineptness at representing his father just put the icing on the cake. 2 John Ziegler, don't give up. Please don't give up. I follow everything that you update and wish you only the best. I'm sorry for all the bad things that has happened to you on this and I hope you Prevail in the end. It's going to take a lot of time. Thank you..
