    Link: Man That Reported That Paterno Died Apologizes - and resigns! Devon Edwards, managing editor of Onward State, the Penn St site that first reported that JoePa died, quit.

    That was a very well written apology.
    But everyone makes mistakes, and I don`t think this is a mistake that`s important enough to resign over.

    This is probably way to obscure for most people outside the states.

    "important enough to resign over."

    Or perhaps he was planning on doing so before the report was ever made, and wanted to go out with a bang. Even if it wasn`t a factual bang.

    He`s a senior this year, so I don`t think his resignation means much.

    Wishful thinking got the better of him.

    Does anyone here know if Joe Paterno`s cancer was known before the Sandusky situation? I`m no Paterno follower so I don`t know, but I`m wondering if this was going to be his last season anyway, because of the cancer.

    @fancy
    "The elder Paterno was dismissed last month (Nov. `11) in the aftermath of child sex abuse charges against retired Nittany Lions assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. Paterno was diagnosed several days later with what his family has called a treatable form of lung cancer."

    CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES and THE POLICE.

    those are the two agencies Paterno should have called after his higher ups failed to handle the situation. instead the guy stayed quiet like he was told to do all the while children were being raped by one of his coaches with his full knowledge.

    he failed to do the only thing anyone should do in a case like this, PROTECT the innocent.

    Why lose your career because of one mistake? That`s stupid.

    @ggolbez If you`re a (respactable) journalist one mistake is all it takes. He did an extremely honorable thing by quitting. Reporting someone dead that isn`t is a HUGE error and in journalism even the smallest errors are a big deal. Geting even the smallest fact wrong can get you in huge trouble in an industry of (what is supposed to be) truth. He probably would have been fired or suspended anyway. In journal class I once got an F on a report that was 9/10 because I spelled a name wrong by one letter. Its serious buisiness.
