A report released Thursday concludes that Joe Paterno and other officials at Penn State “concealed critical facts” about Jerry Sandusky’s child abuse in order to prevent bad publicity.
“This is the most damning piece of work that I have ever seen in covering anything,” Chronicle of Higher Education reporter Brad Wolverton told Here & Now‘s Robin Young.
The report is the result of an 8-month internal investigation at Penn State.
Jeremy Hobson joins Robin Young as co-host of Here & Now in its new 2-hour format, from WBUR and NPR.
