A 32-minute video released this week on YouTube takes up the case for Joe Paterno, the late Penn State football coach who was fired four days after a grand jury presentment revealed he had been told of sexual abuse of a young boy at the hands of former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.
The film, entitled Framing Paterno, is the creation of John Ziegler, a conservative filmmaker who specializes in media criticism. One of his prior productions took the media to task for its treatment of 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
The movie presents evidence that Ziegler said exonerates Paterno, who was fired on Nov. 9. He said it claims Paterno wasnt told in detail by then-graduate assistant Mike McQueary in 2001 about what McQueary saw when he discovered Sandusky in the shower with a young boy at the Lasch Football Building.
The purpose of the film, according to Ziegler, is to refute a largely false narrative to fit (the medias) own agenda.
This video is intended to be a short summary of what a proposed full-length documentary about the real story regarding Joe Paterno's role in the Jerry Sandusky scandal might look like. The producers wish to make it clear that they are not defending Jerry Sandusky, but rather just seeking the truth of what really happened here and seperating media hype from actual facts .
