Jerry Sandusky

NBC Failed to Air

Damning Molestation Comments

6/19/2012 12:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jerry Sandusky told Bob Costas back in November -- "I didn't go around seeking out every young person for sexual needs that I've helped."  Yet that damning statement was never aired on NBC, and prosecutors in the molestation case have not played it for the jury.

"NBC Nightly News" aired the statement last night ... As for why NBC didn't air it during the November broadcast, a spokesman told us, "There were a lot of compelling comments in the original interview but we did not have time to include them all." 

As for why prosecutors didn't play Sandusky's statement to the jury ... beats us.

That comment is sketchy, but he isn't admitting to anything. Harvey the lawyer should understand that.

OMG!! ESPN just another Network fixed on trying to cover up these allegations. Why are these demonic people trying to protect this monster - why are they trying to cover up the rape of children!

These people are disgusting!

that comment could be translated many ways. This is TMZ pushing their dramatic opinions on the public yet again. Gosh, I used to LOVE TMZ. Why have they become such an untrustworthy source these days? I have to second guess every headline I see.

Oh, Lord. If I were Sandusky's attorney, I'd be petrified to let him take the witness stand.

"There were a lot of compelling comments in the original interview but we did not have time to include them all."

How could they not have had the time to air the most compelling comment of all? It's practically an admission! Why on earth was that not played for the jurors? I don't get it.

You mean NBC....the same network who selectively edited the George Zimmerman tapes to make him look racist? NBC, who just yesterday deliberately edited Mit Romneys speech out of context. NBC, who rigged GM trucks with explosives then did a story about faulty fuel lines causing trucks to explode.

NBC has a long long history of not being an honest news outlet. They are not only not honest they deliberately misinform.
