Media just fell asleep in Penn State story

David Newhouse, editor of the Harrisburg Patriot-News tells the history of the Penn State sex abuse scandal through the eyes of his reporters. It seems clear that the charges, which came in stages (first in 1998, and later in 2002) were covered up not just by the university but by the local police. In March of this year the Patriot-News says it carried a full account of information surrounding the investigation of coach Sandusky. Every journalist who reads the Newhouse account can decide for himself just where and why the defenders of the public welfare fell asleep on this story. The full Newhouse op-ed is linked on the headline above to one of our own pages.
