Only 25 percent of Americans polled correctly knew that "Joe Paterno arranged for the person in charge of the Penn State campus police to be informed of the shower allegation involving Jerry Sandusky. " Twenty-four percent incorrectly answered that the statement was "false" and 48 percent were unsure.

Only 15 percent correctly wrote "true" when told that "The Freeh Report did not speak to the five Penn State people most closely connected to the case." Fifteen percent incorrectly wrote "false" and an astounding 65 percent were unsure.''

Finally, an astounding 28 percent of Americans believe that Paterno was accused of molesting children and another 15 percent are unsure. (Invoking the language of the great H.L. Mencken, we're probably talking about "morons" here, aren't we?)
