Manti Te'o and a big glass of who cares?

Manti Te'o, noted Hawaiian and phoniest Mormon since Mitt Romney, is on everyone's hearts and minds these days.

Was the poor guy duped by a sociopath friend?

Was the poor guy a sociopath who used a fake girlfriend's death as a way to get into shilling for Best Buy commercials?

Who cares? Really, who cares?

Manti Te'o (left) and his girlfriend (right). 

I didn't know who Manti Te'o was until someone asked me, "What do you think of Manti Te'o getting duped?"

I stared with a blank face for a few minutes then asked, "How do you spell that?" and searched it. BAM! There's more on it then there is on Lance Armstrong.

He's not kissing little kids. He's not killing people. He's just playing with imaginary friends that he may or may not have been aware that they were imaginary. He's either naive or stupid. I'm betting stupid.

In other news, America kills some people with flying death machines and Facebook launched a new search engine! Is Google jealous? Find out next time on every fucking channel that exists.

    1. Our 24 hours news cycle makes non-news the news. There was a time, long before I existed, where the news breaks were only 15 minutes long. That is EXACTLY how much actual news happens in a 24 hour period. I don't mind in depth programs about real problems but when 'journalists' write 3000 word pieces on what they watched on Oprah or Katie Couric, there is a problem. Anyone who has access to a television and anyone who cares about what Lance Armstrong or Manti Teo did saw the interview. Is there any more need to report on what has already been reported and seen by anyone who gave a damn? I don't think so.

      Even NPR is doing this kind of bullcrap reporting. I kid you not, they go from the USA's use of drones to a story about Facebook Search. Why is Facebook anywhere in the news? Shouldn't it be relegated to the business reporting? We're over-saturated with bullshit. Thanks for the comment.
