Excellent post underlion. The media sensationalizes to gain the 1st to report pseudo news. There is usually some fact involved, if you are apprised of the situation, but if you are taking the media's reporting for news you are misinformed in general and mal-informed in particular. The more you actually know of the event the less the news media's report represents fact to you. Joe is the story and since PSU has been pushing the lily white story for generations this is a sweet, salacious opportunity to take down what they built up in the past, their stock in trade. +
We don't subscribe to hbo so we won't be viewing it although I'm sure it will surface sometime in the future or a free hbo weekend on Dish network may offer it. I don't know if I'd watch it anyway as I'm sure I'll hear all about it prior to any opportunity to view it.
One thing for sure, it won't be pretty.
