Good article. Just about everyone in America is aware of the Penn St problem yet how many are aware of a much bigger problem? And those that are aware, like the media who chose to keep quiet, why is there not a bigger outcry?

I guess you cant blame some people for not knowing, as the media is the ones who can really dictate what gets out to everyone and what doesnt. If the media did its damn job, every single person in this country would know about this and theyd be extremely upset.

Note that Paterno was ousted rather quickly. Why not Holder? He overseas the DOJ which has committed a much much worse offense.
This is the OP. I said, "Apples to Oranges". The same people are not responsible for firing Paterno and Holder. You guys just don't get it. Why don't you deputized the PSU trustees. I'm sure they'd be glad to be of service.

The OP asked why Holder had not been fired.

Is this really going over your head to understand what I was talking about and what the article, which you probably didnt read, was talking about?

Seriously, did you really think I though Holder should be fired by PSU board of trustees?!
Holder and others responsible should be fired by Obama or whoever else. He needs to be held accountable. But much like the other scandals and garbage going on in this Administration, the media and others dont see it as worth making a big deal about. The Gun Walker is a HUGE deal. Yet the media and others are just ho hum about it, meanwhile look at the coverage the PSU scandal got. Look at the coverage Cains scandal got.

There are big things happening, yet there is little to no outrage where the really should be. And while I think plenty in the public can be blamed for not caring enough, so can the damn media that absolutely refuses to do its duty with the same amount of dedication as it does other stories.
