Elisabeth Meinecke, deputy managing editor at Townhall.com, joins Cam Edwards in studio to discuss her recent article, "A Double Standard on Penn State's Joe Paterno and AG Eric Holder." The article compares the public's reaction and the media treatment of Penn State football coach Joe Paterno's firing amidst a sexual abuse scandal and Attorney General Eric Holder's testimony during the Operation Fast & Furious gunwalking scandal. Edwards and Meinecke discuss the "moral standard" that the public and the media apply to a football coach, but not a government official. Originally aired 11/10/2011.
