This story seems overly sympathetic to Penn State and its wounded football program. It does not mention whether Sandusky is eligible for parole (likely he is) and if so, when. It does not mention the range of possible sentences. It spends more words on describing all the people who thought the case was unfair than on the facts of the case or the sentence. I think it is poor journalism from someone who has a bias. It is a disappointment from Bloomberg, usually a more trustworthy news source.
