The study by PEJ involves an examination of the full fire hose of all public tweets and examined all of those that focused on the sexual abuse scandal. PEJ did the analysis using technology provided by the firm Crimson Hexagon.

Way more people against Penn State than Joe Paterno?

Does that indicate that sentiment is against the institution?

Several million people attended PSU at some point in the past 46 years, and JoePa was ALWAYS a beacon of ethics and integrity, whereas you could always count on the administration to be doing something shady behind closed doors. It's difficult to simply suspend belief.

What has particularly angered me in this process is how gleefully the press narrative has pilloried JoePa while ignoring the weasel at the center of it all, Graham Spanier.
