Accused child molester Jerry Sandusky took to NBC-TV to proclaim his innocence. His interview with Bob Costas did not go particularly well, as the commentary in the Twittervese illustrated.
Here is a sampling of the instant analysis:
Jason Whitlock: "Costas interview seems like Sandusky's suicide note. #24hoursandsanduskyisdone
JJFromKansas: "You think maybe Sandusky's entire defense is predicated on trying to ruin an entire nation's jury pool?"
Christina Kahrl: "Sandusky situation was already so many shades of vile, have to wonder if app. on NBC isn't his way of guaranteeing no jury can be found."
Zach Klein: "Costas asked Sandusky "Are u sexually attractive to young boys? - it took him 16.3 seconds to say 'no.'"
Jimmy Traina: "I literally cannot believe what I just watched. He had to think about whether he was SEXUALLY attracted to underage boys. ON NATIONAL TV!"
Gary Parrish: "Note to everybody: If somebody ever asks if you're attracted to young boys, just say no. It's simple. 'No sir, I am not.'"
Dennis Dodds: "'Sexually attracted? I enjoy young people. I love to be around but them but no ...'"
Clay Travis: "They will show this Bob Costas interview to generations of criminal defense lawyers. Lesson: don't let client talk."
SportsPickle: "Sandusky's lawyer probably shouldn't bother to hand out business cards on his way out."
Jay Glazer: "Sandusky says he did nothing wrong but regrets showering w little boys. If any man showered w my son I'd slit his f-ing throat!!!"
Jeff Schultz: "So Sandusky's lawyer impregnated a 17-year-old. Perfect. Does he plan to call Roman Polanski as character witness for Sandusky?"
Clay Travis: "If you were Paterno wouldn't you at least want to know what Sandusky said when confronted? Unless Joe Pa already knew it was true."
Sports by Brooks: "Sandusky still on the loose & now he & attorney 'found' 10 yr old boy he raped & have convinced victim to deny? Sleep well, State College."
Eric Stangel: "Costas/Sandusky Recap: Spectacular Journalism, Insane Behavior, Terrible Legal Representation."
SportsPickle: "One question Costas forgot to ask him: 'When did you stop being a pedophile?'"
Clay Travis: "Watching Bob Costas crush Sandusky was like seeing the Velveteen Rabbit curb stomp the anti-christ. Completely unexpected."
Jennifer Floyd Engel: "LeBron to Sandusky: Next time handpick network and interviewer. #JimGray
Sports by Brooks: "As I said earlier, if you think a jury of Sandusky's peers at Penn State & State College won't acquit him, you are dead, flat wrong."
