As almost everyone in the sports world watched on TV this morning, a report from former FBI director Louis Freeh was released Thursday detailing his findings from a seven-month internal probe regarding the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
Well, almost everyone watched except those on Penn State’s campus.
According to Philly.com, televisions in PSU’s student center switched to a public access channel, on which there was a discussion of the state budget, right before the 9 a.m. EDT release of the report.
Philly.com said that those gathered near televisions who had been watching CNN “scrambled” to find out what was wrong so they wouldn’t miss the broadcast of the findings.
According to the website, a student working at the student center’s main desk said that a university employee controls what is on the television screens, but that person could not be reached because he or she was in a meeting.
