Jerry Sandusky Tells Bob Costas: ‘No, I’m Not Sexually Attracted To Young Boys’

(By Tommy Christopher, Mediaite) - On Monday night’s 'Rock Center', Brian Williams‘ new weekly news magazine, Bob Costas conducted a tough telephone interview with accused child rapist Jerry Sandusky, the focal point of a cover-up that has resulted in the firing of Penn State football coach Joe Paterno. While Sandusky maintained his innocence, the interview served up a number of clues to help the audience judge Sandusky’s credibility, and Sandusky’a attorney provided some insight into his defense.

The Penn State story is excruciating to contemplate, and while Sandusky is due the legal presumption of innocence, there is no disputing that Joe Paterno was part of a long chain of Penn State officials who failed to report eyewitness allegations of child rape by Sandusky, who is now under a 40 count indictment.
