Penn State Defenders to Hold Panel This Friday

Dust off your cardboard cutouts of Joe Paterno. Shake out your blue and white shakers. Leave the OneTeam hashtag at the door. The cavalry to restore tradition to Happy Valley has returned.

On Friday evening, Franco Harris will lead “Upon Further Review: One Year Later,” a panel which promises to debunk misconceptions surrounding the Sandusky Scandal. In addition, the discussion will unveil unreported truths that have ensnared our community for the past eighteen months. The event, which has been promoted by Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship, is open to the public and will be held from 3:00 – 5:30 at the Days Inn, free of charge.

Harris will moderate a conversation among Penn State traditionalists and one journalist. Panelists include:

Ray Blehar, an employee in the Department of Defense and runs the NotPSU blog

Anthony Lubrano, a current Trustee and the most ardent defender of “Success with Honor” on the Board

Chip Minemyer, the Executive Editor of the Centre Daily Times

Eileen Morgan, who spoke at the Rally for Resignations in September

Rob Tribeck, a Harrisburg attorney and the legal counsel of PS4RS

John Ziegler, an incendiary filmmaker who runs Framing Paterno

Among the six panelists, only Minemyer is independent of the PS4RS sphere of influence. This diminishes Franco Harris’s role as a moderator, as it’s not likely this group disagrees on much (sans Minemyer).

Correction: A previous version stated that PS4RS was responsible for planning the event. Although a press release for the event came from PS4RS, they did not plan the event. We regret the error.
