Joe Paterno's career on the ropes? Harrisburg Patriot News reporter explains

Penn State could be in the process of bringing Joe Paterno's historic 45-year coaching career at the school to an end. The University's Board of Trustees plans to investigate allegations of child sexual abuse against a former Paterno assistant – and charges that school officials tried to cover it up. Yet many Pennsylvania locals continue to support the renowned coach. A crowd of fans and students held an impromptu rally outside Paterno's home to stand in solidarity with the hometown legend.

Carol Costello speaks with Sara Ganim, a reporter at The Patriot News, who's been following the local reaction to these shocking sex abuse allegations.
