Apparently NBC Didn't Air Its Entire Interview With Jerry Sandusky

Creepy.

Jerry Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant coach who is being charged with 52 counts of sexual crimes against children, agreed to be interviewed by NBC last November. His decision was met with a great deal of criticism. Guilty or innocent, it was going to be difficult for him to change his public perception.

While Sandusky obviously wanted the interview to help his case, the move backfired. NBC didn't air the interview in its entirety, and the unaired portion may be used as further evidence against him in trial. As if the portion NBC originally aired wasn't creepy enough, apparently the network decided to leave out what could be argued as admission of guilt.

“I didn’t go around seeking out every young person for sexual needs that I’ve helped,” Sandusky told Costas.

Whether or not Sandusky is implying he sought out any young people for sexual needs is up for interpretation, but I'd guess most people have already made up their minds.
