Even Bob Costas is surprised that former assistant Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky spoke to him about child sex-abuse allegations. Costas said Tuesday on MSNBC's ''Morning Joe'' that he was about to speak to Sandusky's lawyer the previous evening. Just before it was to start, the lawyer offered up Sandusky on the telephone - and about 15 minutes later, Costas was interviewing the former coach. It came together so swiftly that NBC raced to get the word out about the interview. The network posted Sandusky's words on Twitter even before the interview with Costas ended. Monday night was a remarkable evening of news-making interviews on broadcast TV, with the Sandusky interview airing directly opposite ABC's interview with brain-damaged Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

  • Sandusky has cooked his own goose. This guy is a sex pervert if there ever was one. The attorney who took on his case surely has his work cut out for him. By going on national TV the "perv" has handed him a hot iron. Penn State hurried to launch damage control by offering up a shallow "CumBiYa" to attempt to soften the upcoming financial blows that are surely coming. This is sad! Very, very sad!!!
