Report: TVs at PSU student center changed channel before Freeh report

Thursday July 12th, 2012

Just as the Freeh Report was released Thursday morning at 9 a.m., students who were gathered in Penn State's student center were shocked when the channel on several televisions changed to public access.

According to Melissa Dribben of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the TVs in the HUB-Robeson Center Facility, where a handful of students were gathered, were changed from CNN to a public access channel reporting about the state budget.

Several students went to speak with a student working at the main desk at the student center. But the student said a university employee was in charge of what is broadcast. That person, the student said, was in a meeting and could not be reached.
The Freeh Report is the seven-month long independent investigation into the Penn State child abuse scandal. The investigation was led by former FBI director Louis Freeh, and the findings of the report were made public Thursday morning.
