Buzz Bissinger's Failure of Critical Thinking Skills

Journalist Buzz Bissinger has weighed in on the Bill Conlin molestation story at the Daily Beast. He ends it thusly:
"Conlin leaves behind a body of work, just like former Penn State head football coach Joe Paterno leaves behind a body of work. But they both add up to the exact same thing now:
Bissinger has been just one more member of the media lynch mob out to hang Paterno for his failure to do more to bring Jerry Sandusky to justice. But this is beyond the pale.

Comparing Paterno's alleged failure to report (which is false on it's face) to Conlin's alleged sexual abuse of children is beyond unfair. It's ludicrous. 

Bissinger might as well be trashing the families of Conlin's alleged victims for failing to go to the police years ago.
