After the Verdict, Some Perspective

June 23, 2012 at 10:55 am 1 comment

There’s plenty of diverse perspective today in the wake of Jerry Sandusky’s conviction.

Dan Wetzel of Yahoo has been as good as anyone in covering the scandal, and his wrap-up column is no exception. Wetzel acknowledges what many in the national media have been unable or unwilling to over the past eight months:

“The verdict ended the fallacy that this was an area too devoted to Penn State football to render a fair and proper judgment. The anger at Sandusky was deeper than the outside world could fathom. There may have been a conspiracy to protect Sandusky … [but] none of that represents the rank and file here, not the good people who never hesitated to see Sandusky as a monster and were pained when he seemingly dragged the entire region’s reputation down with him.”

Among some of the other content worth checking out:

* A broad overview in the New York Times on the how the scandal and trial have affected Penn State thus far, and what might be next.

* An analysis by Reuters of the university’s potential liability.

* A piece in the Journal News of New York on how Sandusky’s conviction will help other male victims of sexual abuse come forward.

* A profile of sorts on Sandusky ’66, ’71g in his last hours as a free man, in the Philadelphia Inquirer.

*An NBC interview with one of the jurors who found Sandusky guilty.
