In January 2012, Jenkins secured an interview with Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) football coach Joe Paterno shortly before his death. During the interview, she asked his views on the Jerry Sandusky sexual molestation allegations. Her report of this interview was published 13 January 2012. In it she drew no firm conclusions about Paterno’s culpability, but simply reported his words, and those of his lawyer. On 12 July 2012, in a Washington Post follow-up column, after the release of Freeh Report, she wrote: “Joe Paterno was a liar, there’s no doubt about that now …Paterno fell prey to the single most corrosive sin in sports: the belief that winning on the field makes you better and more important than other people.”
Jenkins co-wrote two best-selling autobiographies with cyclist Lance Armstrong and defended Armstrong even after he admitted to doping and taking banned performance-enhancing substances while vehemently lying that he had done so, and was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles. In a column titled, “Why I’m not angry at Lance Armstrong”, Jenkins wrote: “And I’m confused as to why using cortisone as an anti-inflammatory in a 2,000-mile race is cheating, and I wonder why putting your own blood back into your body is the crime of the century.”
