Penn State senior lecturer Michael Poorman joined the show to talk about his “Joe Paterno: Communications and the Media” class.

Poorman said his students have a lot of questions. “A lot of them wonder why there’s a focus only on Joe,” Poorman said. “They wondered why he was targeted more than anyone else.”

Poorman said that Paterno is an example of how the media covers the world throughout the years. But Poorman agrees with Dan that Paterno hasn’t gotten in it this case.

Dan asked Poorman if he could go to new coach Tom Bradley’s press conference, what would you ask. He said, “Tom, did you know Jerry [Sandusky] had a history?”
