Jerry Sandusky Trial: Journalists Now Allowed To Use Internet

Let the media circus begin in T-minus…

PennLive.com reported that a Pennsylvania judge initially banned Internet use in the courtroom, but changed his mind on Monday after hearing an attorney representing major media outlets. It was argued that the ban would pose challenges on journalists to do their jobs effectively, and delay their ability to report information out to the public. [via]

Bob Mother Effing Costas for the win!

Costas asked very direct questions. And he’s done some good research with this story, noting how strange it is that, after he quit Penn State, he didn’t pursue other opportunities at major universities. He had an interview with Virginia; he removed himself from consideration. A good interview but a tough one to watch. Admit that some of the things Costas asked probably made viewers uncomfortable. But he didn’t hide from them. The fact that he didn’t makes the fact that Sandusky agreed to this interview seem all the more absurd.
