Phil Knight not so sure about Joe Paterno any more

His little temper tantrum has turned out to be dead wrong.

Comments (11)

"Joe Paterno Child Care Center" It doesn't get anymore ironic than that. Definitely a no-brainer in changing the name on that one.

Sadly, it's a mistake a lot of us are have been guilty of at one time or another- being taken in by the public persona of someone with some serious internal warts.

John Edwards campaign button anybody?

Raleigh, there is a great big difference between those who are simply fooled, and those who purposely choose to close their eyes to aid the guilty. It is a shift over the line from being unwitting to becoming an accomplice.

Gibby says >>Raleigh, there is a great big difference between those who are simply fooled, and those who purposely choose to close their eyes to aid the guilty.

Please see below :)......(ducking)

The University ought to be shut down - I am betting that this investigation was "contained" at some level, so the filth is much stinkier than simply everybody was covering for the guy.

Oregon knows all about covering for the guy (child rapist Neil), but I have a spider-sense that this goes into crazy land of financial donations for favors territory.

And probably why Phil was so defensive - it hits a little too close to home (not saying with kids, but favors none the less).

I'm waiting for a serious discussion of the Neil child raping and those who knew about it and the cover up-just like Sandusky/ Paterno.

There are several people who definitely knew of Goldschmidt's pedophila. We need more airing of those who contribute to pedophile acts by not coming forward to report such incidences. For me, they almost deserve as much loathing as the pedophile.

"Penn State: no football for you -- 10 years!" -- The Soup Nazi

lw: You're absolutely right. Maybe Phil Knight should help with that.

What Tim suspects, that 'investigation' was 'contained' at a point, PLUS your own realizations about how long the pedophilia had been going on, (actually since 1977 at Sandusky's formation of the Second Mile Foundation when Rick Santorum was Penn State freshman ... facts not often 'realized'), and in those many years it stands to reason that plenty of people must have known about the immorality. Plenty of people the investigation contained itself from discovering. Convince yourself with your own knowledge of world ways.

There is smelling the fishy, and then there is actually catching the fish. Such as Wayne Madsen Report has dug up (Jack Anderson redux), and published the players names on a scandal Scorecard. Believe it or not; and then think of Goldschmidt and what you believed (or not) in his case; and then see if you might believe the following:

January 9-10, 2011 -- "Ricky" Santorum and the gay Penn State College Republicans

1977 was the year GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum was a freshman at Penn State and the year that Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, now charged with multiple counts of molesting underage males, began his Second Mile Foundation charity, which stands accused by some press accounts of pimping out young boys to wealthy donors.

Penn State has hired Santorum's colleague in The Israel Project, Lanny Davis, as its counsel to represent the university during the on-going scandal. However, it also appears likely that Davis wants to help limit the exposure of his pal Santorum to any fallout from what is fast being exposed as a long and on-going culture of pedophilia and male homosexuality at Penn State, going back to 1977 and the activities of some of the up-and-coming members of the College Republicans on campus.

On October 18, 2006, WMR ran the following concerning Santorum's close friend, former Pennsylvania congressman Phil English, a University of Pennsylvania student, with whom Santorum formed the Penn State chapter of the Pennsylvania College Republicans in 1977. The chairman of the National College Republicans at the time was Karl Rove, who, in 1973, defeated Terry Dolan, [in NCR Chair election] who was gay and who died of AIDS in 1986:

"WMR can also report that the closeted Pennsylvania GOP Congressman is Phil English of the 3rd Congressional District. We have received information that English was arrested in Erie in the late 1980s for soliciting sex from an underage African-American male. At the time, English was the Erie City Controller. The arrest was quickly covered up by Erie city officials, including the mayor. ...

"On June 29, WMR reported, 'English is said to have narrowly avoided a major scandal involving a prostitute in Erie that was covered up by the late Erie Mayor Lou Tullio and an additional incident in Harrisburg. Both incidents occurred before English was elected to the House. English replaced former Pennsylvania Governor and Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge in the House of Representatives.'"

On October 20, 2006, during WMR's coverage of the House page sex scandal, we reported the following:
"WMR has learned that the GOP for a number of years has used pipelines like the House and Senate page systems, political indoctrination organizations like the College Republicans, juvenile 'diversion programs,' and religious-connected political groups to groom young men for the predatory sexual appetites of older male GOP members of Congress. The Pennsylvania College Republicans, founded by current Rep. Phil English with the support of current Sen. Rick Santorum, appears to be one such recruitment' center."
Sandusky's Second Mile Foundation was one such "diversion program" for troubled male youth who had run-ins with the law.

Because U.S. senators have greater budgets and staffs, they often hire more than the ample number of staff members who are later recruited to work in the offices of House members. However, in some cases, gay senators have used their larger budgets to hire gay staffers who are then "pimped" out to House members, including Mark Foley, who resigned amid the House sex scandal involving underage male pages. On November 2, 2006, WMR reported on the Senate-to-House pimping practice:

"With less than a week before the election ... comes additional chatter about the large number of open and closeted male homosexuals working in top positions in [Virginia Senator George] Allen's Senate office. ... Allen was also one of three U.S. Senators who received contributions from Rep. Mark Foley, who resigned after soliciting sex from underage male pages. The other two are Rick Santorum and Jim Talent."
That foregoing material was in the Jan.9-10, 2012, column of WMR.

Which brings us to today's item (at WMR frontpage), a clipping of news linked in the NYTimes, with WMR's annotation:

[July 13, 2012] NATIONAL NEWS:

Paterno, Spanier, other Penn State officials faulted for cover-up in Freeh report. We [WMR audience] all know Freeh pulled his punches: on the pimping out of boys to wealthy Second Mile Foundation donors and Governor Tom Corbett's cover-up.

Yes, WE ALL know, don't WE?

We might wonder why the Mainstream Press and TV Scandalmongers or Phil Knight couldn't seem to find someone in the Pennsylbania of Governors Tom Ridge or Ed Rendell or Tom Corbett who could corroborate if not 'second source' reports of what was going on in the state (say Paterno, maybe and more). Governors in television should try to keep up.

... wait, oh right, they all got elected to Congress, where 'containing investigations' (unseen in TV, unrealized in public) is part of the job description.

Later, (after 1977 at Pennsylvania State), it was deja vu all over again ...
at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue:

[YouTube]NBC's Tom Brokaw in a 1989 TV news report on the infamous Washington Times Story; June 29, 1989 'HOMOSEXUAL PROSTITUTION INQUIRY ENSNARES VIPS WITH REAGAN, BUSH - 'CALL BOYS TOOK MIDNIGHT TOUR OF WHITE HOUSE'
Wasn't Goldschmidt in D.C. during the entire Carter Administration, 1977-80?

Wow, T! Sounding like a Gomorrahn travel agent there.

Really, any company that has Roethlisberger, Woods, and the "rehabilitated" Vick on the payroll and purports to be even remotely moral and care in the slightest about presenting these paragons of virtue as role models for young athletes shouldn't be commended for removing Paterno's name. Bet anything Knight knew the real story long ago and was waiting to see which way the wind would blow and what would be released before distancing himself.

Nike. The penultimate pioneer in the concept of the hollow corporation that makes nothing themselves and pours everything into marketing and advertising---and an Oregon original.
