A Counter View of Penn State

William Levinson writes in The American Thinker that Penn State flinched in the face of media pressure, soiling itself and its reputation. He presents some details not exactly front and center in most reports of the events (that the assistant coach's testimony doesn't exactly sync with the prosecutor's case; that the Penn State board more than once violated its own policies). If correct, Levinson casts Penn State as more Duke lacrosse than priest scandal. Without more time to peel back the details, I simply say this: take the dissertation of Levinson about whether PSU was right or wrong as you will, but read through and consider how he does make the compelling point that someone needed to think beyond the immediate panic.
