Framing Joe Paterno

A website has been created, Framing Joe Paterno, by an amazing group of individuals including John Ziegler, Marc Rubin, Barry Bozeman, Ray Blehar and Wlater Uhler.  I have linked articles by some of these individuals here on this blog.

Their mission (to boldly go where the media has never gone before!):
This website is dedicated to the notion that an out of control news media has created a false narrative in the Jerry Sandusky scandal, which has effectively framed Joe Paterno for crimes he didn't commit and of which he may have had very limited knowledge. This has resulted in an unjust destruction of a man's entire life work and legacy, while doing incredible damage to a university and football program which may not have deserved the unprecedented and illogical punishments they received. At the very least, since the source of the entire case against Paterno has yet to even be asked about the emails he wrote, we have witnessed a colossal rush to judgment.

This site is NOT a defense of child sexual abuse and, to be clear, Jerry Sandusky was obviously guilty of most of what he was charged with doing. This site is also NOT remotely based on a conspiracy theory, but rather the notion that an incompetent, ratings driven media, along with some devious politicians, all acted in their own perceived self interest to tell this story in way not consistent with the facts.

We ARE dedicated to exposing the truth in this case and this website may be the home of a proposed documentary film on this subject, "The Framing of Joe Paterno... How an Out of Control Media May Have Railroaded an American Icon."

This site is intended to combine the efforts of the most ardent "Web Defenders" (since the mainstream media won't allow anyone to take a position like ours) of Joe Paterno, including John Ziegler, Marc Rubin, Barry Bozeman, Ray Blehar, and Walter C. Uhler. If others would like to join us in this cause, they are welcome to do so.
I highly recommend the site if you have the time and inclination!
