Asking Questions That Need to Be Asked

Don't you wish Bob Costas would moderate a presidential debate?  The White House press corps should take a lesson from Bob on how to ask a direct question, how to clarify and how to follow up.  For any student journalist, this is a line of questioning worth watching again.

Let's hope those investigating the Penn State mess are as thorough in their questioning.  Do you think Jerry Sandusky was being truthful when he told Costas he'd never been asked a single thing about his behavior by Joe Paterno?  The New York Times reports another ten victims have come forward.  Hopefully last night's interview prompts more to do so.
