I can’t help but think of dozens of local stories in the last year involving child luring and things of that nature where the suspect is arrested forthwith, perp walked on the local news, and shuffled off into the legal system. No grand juries, no years long investigations, no need for further corroboration. One child, one accusation, instant handcuffs. Of course, when one isn’t a cog in a multi-billion dollar industry like big-time college sports, I guess you can’t expect the same standard of treatment.
I’d like to hear a logical explanatio from the guy as to why he gave the tape to ESPN instead of to the police.

This has got to feel like karma for Rush.
ESPN management sucks, but I admit, I watch Mike & Mike in the morning. Mike & Mike wanted to be careful how they covered the Penn St. tragedy. Greenburg even warned parents to remove kids from the vicinity the first time they discussed it.
But, management had other ideas, soon it was all Penn St, all the time.
I wonder if the same people that have been calling for ending the football program at Penn State will now call for The Walt Disney Company to close down ESPN.
That is what I was thinking too
I just want to know when all the FReepers that were calling for Joe Pa’s head are going to demand the same from ESPN’s management.
Mike & Mike is about all I watch on ESPN any more, other than live football and college hoops. Their show seems to skirt the politicization of most other shows, and is an escape from the day-to-day. I don’t want to turn on sports and see Obama parading around.
So, ESPN is now the Supreme Court and the Attorney General? They had no corroborating evidence?? Who cares...give it to the cops, you nitwits...and Rush is right: if it were little girls being abused they would have done more.
“ESPN had a tape since 2002 with evidence”
A netword covering up rape/child abuse?
If there had been a program about Tim Tebow and his Christian views, etc., ESPN would have had it on within minutes, bashing him, don’t you think?
Thats simple!!! Instead of seeing Bernie Fine prosecuted, Davis wanted money.
Rush has some experience with ESPN in this regard.
YUP, and the culture of corruption continues in the NCAA. Schools continually changing conferences for the next buck; you think they are going to hang the dirty laundry after such risky moves? Anti-trust with the BCS system and the NCAA watches. Open recruiting violations, yet only the small schools get caught.
this is a disney company is it not?
He talked to police before making the tape. Sounds like the police didn’t want anything to do with it either.
Like I said about the Sandusky thing. If you think stuff like this goes on for as long as it did without at least the hacks covering the team, if not hacks even further afield, at minimum hearing rumors about it, you’re kidding yourselves. It doesn’t let guys like Sandusky and Fine off the hook, it should put the hacks on the hook alongside them.
The elephant in the room rears its head again. The thing that Rush said can cost people their careers. The truth he confirmed he was referring to last week on his show.
The money line?
“See how fast ESPN would have put that out if it was a young girl that was molested.”
And there it is.
Yes, they are unfortunately. ESPN controls all aspects of the reporting of a sports story, they like to BE the story.
