PENN STATE SCANDAL: Anderson Cooper reporting
Panel Follow Up: Jeffrey Toobin, Sunny Hostin and Mark Geragos
As a Penn State Alum I find AC360's reporting on this deeply disturbing story to be quite the rush to judgment. I believe Mark Geragos said it best on Monday's program when he refuted Anderson's reporting on the subject of Joe Paterno, comparing it to a good old fashion lynching by the media. If you missed it here's the video.
Please don't misunderstand, I am horrified by what has transpired at PSU but I also realize the we (and Anderson Cooper) don't have all the facts yet on the culpability of Joe Paterno, President Spanier and others. Some of the 'facts' just don't add up, as Geragos said. I am deeply disturbed by the vigilante mentality Cooper has taken toward those on the periphery of this story. Perhaps it's time for a step back to let the investigation play out, before rushing to judgement?
On a lighter note I pretty much laughed out loud at the very tightly clenched jaw of Mr. Cooper while he was getting his tongue lashing from Mr. Geragos. Wonder if that's the last we'll see of the noted attorney for a while? ~Phebe
