A media tsunami is reporting everywhere the  Freeh Report proves Joe Paterno was very aware of the 1998 investigation and that he LIED. 

Here is definitive proof the Freeh Report proves no such thing and includes statements that are LIES.  

THE FREEH REPORT SAYS JOE PATERNO IS A LIAR offering these two emails as proof 

At 05:24 PM 5/5/98 -0400, Re: Joe Paterno   Tim Curley wrote:
I have touched base with the coach. Keep us posted. Thanks.
At 02:21 PM 5/13/98 -0400, Tim Curley wrote:
Anything new in this department? Coach is anxious to know where it stands.

That's it? That is all Freeh has to prove Joe knew and lied. But  The Freeh report is rife with opinions and low on facts and evidence.

Above you have Exhibit 2A the email re Joe Paterno and 2B "coach is anxious to know. Why isn't that "Coach" Jerry Sandusky? He was in close contact with Mr. Curley at that time and he would certainly be anxious to know. In fact most of the emails concern Sandusky's interview by DPW. For that "coach" to be Sandusky makes far more sense. 

Freeh says these two emails show proof that Joe Paterno was updated on the 1998 investigation concerning Victim 6 in May of 1998. What Freeh fails to acknowledge here is this Exhibit 3D Joe Paterno's notes of meeting with Tim and Jerry in early 1998 

We know this isn't easy for you and it isn't easy for us or Penn State. Part of the reason it isn't easy is because I allowed and at times tried to help you with your developing the 2'" Mile. If there were no 2"" Mile then I believe you belief (sp?) that you probably could be the next Penn State FB Coach. But you wanted the best of two worlds and I probably should have sat down with you 6 or 7 years ago and said "look Jerry if you want to be the Head Coach at Penn State, give up your association with the 2"" Mile and concentrate on nothing but your family and Penn State. Don't worry about the 2"" Mile -- you don't have the luxury of doing both. One will always demand a decision of preference. You are too deeply involved in both.

Or exhibit 3B  concerning Jerry's options 

At 08:51 PM 2/9/98 -0500, Tim Curley wrote: Jerry is not interested in the Assistant AD position. Joe and Jerry  have agreed that he can continue in the coaching capacity for the next year. .Jerry will have 30 years in the system next year, which will give him  some options after next season. Joe tells me he made it clear to Jerry  he will not be the next head ooach. Joe did indicate that he still  plans to make a change on the defensive side of the ball. He wants to  talk to me at a later date about what might be available for Joe Sarra. do  you two need an administrative assistant?    Tlm Curley

Exhibit 3F is too long to post here but it is Jerry Sandusky to Tim Curley considering his retirement and employment options. So we have in evidence a chain of notes and emails regarding Sanduskys options from Feb 98 through June just prior to, during and just after the 1998 investigation. These documents show that Joe has to be concerned about the decision Jerry will make because it will effect his football program OR is the "Coach" Tim refers to in the second email above Coach Sandusky? It is clear that Tim is in close contact with Jerry during this time and for certain he would want to know about the status of the investigation that he would definitely know about?

Moreover we have the results of the 1998 investigation 

Schultz Email by Barry Bozeman/The Freeh Report

Jerry Sandusky is found to be cleared. There is "NO CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR"

The CYS investigator Lauro puts it like this:
