Pro-Paterno Billboards Commissioned in Harrisburg

A digital billboard with rotating messages has recently been commissioned near Harrisburg. The messages question Louis Freeh’s investigation, challenge Tom Corbett’s handling of the Sandusky case, criticize the University’s inaction to honor the late Joe Paterno, and calls for the resignation of the Penn State Board of Trustees.

The billboard was paid for by “PS4Truth,” not to be mistaken with Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship (PS4RS) who coordinated the production and distribution of these pro-Paterno billboards around State College last month. At this time, there is very limited information on “PS4Truth.”

The sign will continually alternate five messages. Photos of the billboard are displayed below with their individual messages listed underneath:

(IF? Penn State’s Board of Trustees are responsible for oversight why haven’t they resigned) 

(WHO? in the media has the integrity to admit they used Joe Paterno’s name to boost ratings and sell newspapers)

(HOW? could Louis Freeh issue a report without interviewing Joe Paterno)

(WHY? was Governor Corbett so quick to blame Joe Paterno and so slow to prosecute Jerry Sandusky)

(WHEN? will Penn State honor Joe Paterno’s lifetime of service to the University)

The billboard can be found when going northbound on Route 15 in Harrisburg. It is sandwiched between the Country Inn & Suites hotel and United Rentals.

 

Joe Diebold, a member of PS4Truth, has told The Patriot-News that there are two similar billboards, one located on Route 581 by Lemonye, and another on Route 83. Diebold did not name anyone else involved. It is also unclear how long these billboards will display the messages funded by “PS4Truth.”

Note: Diebold also noted in The Patriot-News that there is a sixth rotating message that says, “WHAT? evidence did the NCAA have to punish and vacate Joe Paterno’s records.”
