Emotions run high on Penn State campus after Paterno firing, but victims are lost in the discussion

Hundreds of Penn State students spilled into the streets early Thursday after news that legendary coach Joe Paterno had been ousted over a child sex abuse scandal at the university. The group quickly turned raucous, proceeding to tip over a news van as they decried the media's coverage of their beloved football coach.

Carol Costello speaks with Jon Wertheim, Senior Writer for Sports Illustrated, to discuss why the students are standing behind Paterno and why more attention isn't being paid to the victims.
