Te’o’s ghost story

January 17, 2013

Deadspin’s managing editor was just interviewed on MSNBC’s The Cycle – he said there was no humanity to the human interest story about college sports start Manti Te’o’s fake dead girlfriend. Consider this story in connection to Zombie Lies and note connection to Pinocchio and puppet masters.

For fuller story: “Manti Te’o’s Dead Girlfriend, The Most Heartbreaking And Inspirational Story Of The College Football Season, Is A Hoax
Timothy Burke and Jack Dickey

This is another symptom of the media’s lack of reporting resources for fact-checking. See also the SuperStorm Sandy hype and that people still associate bath salts with zombies even though the Miami zombie case turned out to have no bath salts.

Then consider that the next segment on MSNBC was about mental illness and the neuroscience of culpability.

This is an issue of the truth of facts – See also Truthers!
