Jon Stewart starts off the segment on the Penn State Joe Paterno story by recounting how an over six foot tall assistant coach witnessed one of the head coaches raping a ten  year old in the shower, and didn't stop him, then call the police, nor call the police to stop him. Instead, over the next few days, the child molester was punished by having his key's to the locker-room taken away. 

Then, Stewart shows crowds of Penn State students in the streets. He reports that they turned over a media van, and comments, 

"I don't want to jump to conclusions here, but it appears the street riot was in response to coachPaterno's firing. 

"I guess it's hard for you to believe that this guy that you think is infallible and this program you think is sacred could hide  such heinous activites.

"But there is some precedent for that. 


"Yeah. 

"And just like with the Catholic church, no-one's trying to take away your religion-- in this case football. 


They're just trying to bring some accountability to a pope when some of his Cardinals f**cked up. 

"So don't worry. On Saturday, you'll still get to go to services against Nebraska. Nobody's going to take that away, because obviously you're young and that would be a traumatic experience, and we wouldn't want that memory to scar you for life."

 

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
