PJ Media Penn State vs. Gunwalker: Warped Priorities?

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.

The outright law breaking the Dems are getting away with are breathtaking. Solyndra, gun running, MF Global, lying to Congress. This could be the most corrupt administration since Nixon.

Wow excellent essay--thanks so much for that link! It's another example of the dumbing down that the media inculcates. Why do they do this? Check out the video 'How Obama got elected' on youtube for the answer.

I didn't know that. So 'Fast & Furious,' was considered 'economic stimulus' by the Obama admin??? This is what they call 'economic stimulus?' Another absurdity to add to a long list from this admin.

This administration makes Nixon's look like amatures.

The reaction to Penn State vs Operation Fast & Furious is understandable. The sheeple don't like it when their sports are interrupted and when their idols are proven to be fallable, if not deviant humans. Operation Fast & Furious does not impact most people's lives (or so they think).

Most sheeple can name the judges for American idol or the names of collegel/pro football head coaches while not being able to name a single justice on the bench of SCOTUS. Priorities messed up? Without a doubt; however, it is all by design.

Not!

Both are scandals. Both are news stories. Both involved coverup of wrongful behavior by organizations. Both resulted in victims.

Oranges to Oranges.

No one claimed they did, simply the focus of the MSM is skewed. 9 out of 10 people could give you a detailed account of the Penn State scandal, not nearly as many know about fast and furious, and someone is dead as a result of that scandal. The fact of the matter is, if this happened in a Republican administration, you would not be able to escape the coverage.

Now you're really going off the rails, Katiana. Where did you get the idea that someone said or even implied that Penn state could fire the Atty. General? There is someone who could fire him, of course, but obviously has not done so.
