I realize this is old, but I had never seen it before and don't recall it being discussed here. The first part is very laudatory of Joe, and how he interacted with Spanier. The middle is a little self-serving: Spanier doesn't recall details of bad incidents, but is sharp on "good" events (including how people congratulated him after he briefed Penn State's executive management).
The third part is not very complimentary of Cynthia Baldwin, of whom many of us are suspicious about her loyalties, competence, and what she said to whom when. The author of the article actually did contact Baldwin's lawyer following his interview of Spanier, and that person said all the right things about her involvement and loyalty to Penn State. Nothing contradictory to Spanier, but more of the "We obviously cannot discuss specifics, but my client is a loyal servant of Penn State."
This was written 22 August 2012, so be prepared for the usual crappy comments. One even says something to the effect, "Joe Paterno thought it important enough to contact people on the weekend -- why didn't Spanier think it was a big deal?" I'll bet $500 that same person has posted elsewhere that Joe should burn in Hell for not taking quicker action to move Penn State forward.
