Actually, I'm pretty sure Jerry Sandusky is in trouble because there are over a dozen people accusing him of the exact same thing, and the district attorney seems to feel that there is enough evidence to go to trial, but with new allegations cropping up every few days, they probably want to get all their ducks in a row before proceeding.
If additional charges are brought against Sandusky, he faces the very real prospect of having his bail set higher than he can pay, and going to jail until trial.
So no, the "liberal media" is not attacking Jerry Sandusky because he's a "damn fine patriot."
It's because he's a child molester. I didn't know child molestation was condoned by the right wing (though I'm not at all surprised), I should call my local "liberal media" outlet so they can report that.
