Penn State Press Conference: Media Reacts To Journalists' Bad Behavior

Here are some reactions from around Twitter to the Penn State Board Of Trustees’ press conference, in which reporters demonstrated an appalling lack of objectivity, throwing around angry questions that made clear they were very much in head coach Joe Paterno’s corner, despite the events of the past few days and despite the fact that they’re supposed to, you know, be objective.

Chris Mueller:

Penn State students and these people in the presser are abhorrent. What a travesty.

Seth Rorabaugh:

The Sting-Hogan presser for their contract signing prior to Starcade 97 had more objective questions than this.

Pete Thamel of the New York Times:

Surma has handled a difficult situation with aplomb here. The manic nature of the questions is unusual and he’s stayed calm.

Rorabaugh again:

PSU keeps finding ways to embarrass itself. That presser was a debacle on so many levels.

Helene Elliott of the L.A. Times:

Those at Penn State presser were turning Paterno into a victim. Hideous. They forgot the real victims.
