What I totally cannot understand is the degree and fervor of the coverage. I personally fail to see why it is a big story or why the apparent degree of public interest or fervor about it or the implied huge significance of this, IMO minor tabloid level story.
I agree. Seriously. Everything all day yesterday was about this story. Seriously? Why do so many people are? Or so it just what the media wants us to care about?!
It's filler to hold people over until Sunday. -- IF YOU FIND ANY MISTAKES IN MY WORK...Please consider that they are there for a purpose. I try to please everyone and there is always someone looking for mistakes!
Yes he probably did. The story about being duped is likely an attempt to mitigate his losses. I think he was fully aware of and participated in the fake girl friend story and death to bring attention to himself...which is pretty messed up.
At some point he started participating in the fake story; it's kind of hard to tell at what point yet. But since he became aware of the fakery on December 6 (according to Notre Dame), and then mentioned her publicly twice after that, he was definitely participating in the fakery then.
The other big part of the story is ESPN and Notre Dame getting all butt-hurt about the deflation of the heroic image they projected of the guy.
I still disagree 100% it's a entertainment piece on a guy written from a tip. There's no reporting there. They basically said this may be true, but we need proof... -- Any it new they in one. You here for mine you here. -JV
