The media is looking for ratings and Joe Paterno is looking for a rock to climb under—plain and simple. Any news outlet which states otherwise is playing you for a fool and I strongly suggest you not give them the satisfaction. A story published today by the TusconCitizen.com posed this particular question to its reading public, “Is ESPN guilty of stalking Joe Paterno?” Now before we state the obvious point that it's not only ESPN jockeying for anything they can get on this story, let’s be honest with ourselves and say that the sexual abuse allegations against Paterno’s former defensive coordnator—Jerry Sandusky—have placed the legendary coach in a precarious position. On the one hand, he still hopes to recover the reputation that his 46-year career as a coach allowed him to have prior to the allegations, while on the other trying not to be proven culpable in a despicable cover-up that brings words like “enabler” and “monster” to mind.
By all accounts he’ll be fighting a losin
