Re: Manti Te'o Makes Up Dead Girlfriend

Deadspin's research into things like his girlfriend's status at Stanford (non-existent), records of her near-fatal car accident (non-existent) and the her picture (actually one of an unknowing Facebook user) seems pretty solid.

If this turns out to be true, Deadspin and this scandal just made a complete mockery of the mainstream media and their apparent lack of ANY background research into any part of this, focusing on emotion-laden headlines to get pageviews and viewers instead. It's FUCKING GLORIOUS for those of us who hate the U.S. media like CNN and Fox News for what it's become.
