Manti Te'o hoax: Do you believe he is a victim?
I guess so, he was lied to but why is this news? I don't understand why we need to know about this at all?? People get tricked/duped sometimes. It sucks but what's the point of announcing it to the world?
The more I think about it the more I agree with you. I was just reading another article and Te'o said he knew (about his GF's death?) on Dec 6 but didn't tell his coach and teammates until later. I guess that's his continued attempt to act like he wasn't in on the hoax. But it also perpetuates the idea that the whole debacle is more newsworthy than it really is.
