Sports broadcaster Bob Costas is drawing cheers this morning following last night’s Rock Center interview with former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, who has been charged with crimes tied with that school’s child sexual abuse scandal. Costas’ tough line of questioning went into sometimes graphic detail about the allegations against Sandusky.
Oprah Winfrey and CNN’s Paul Begala are among those commending Costas on a job well done. And, according to the @NBCNewsPR Twitter feed, Bob Costas is the second most searched term on Google this morning.
Costas also appeared on Morning Joe today to talk about the interview and his new book. During today’s interview he classified some of Sandusky’s answers as “odd” and “very strange.” We’ve got that clip, care of Huffington Post, after the jump.
