Manti Te´o: Story Attributed
To Parents Hard To Reconcile
With Hoax Report

National Public Radio, by Mark Memmott

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 1/17/2013 11:41:53 AM

If you´re trying to make sense of the news that Notre Dame football star Manti Te´o now says he was the victim of a hoax and that the woman he thought was his "girlfriend" never existed and never died, you´ll want to read an Oct. 12 story published by the South Bend Tribune. The newspaper tells readers today that the earlier story was based in large part on "a taped interview on Oct. 10 with Te´o´s parents, Brian and Ottilia, Te´o´s father said the initial meeting between Manti and [the girlfriend] came in person

Comments:
Deadspin broke the story here:

http://deadspin.com/5976517/manti-teos-dead-girlfriend-the-most-heartbreaking-and-inspirational-story-of-the-college-football-season-is-a-hoax

This interview with the parents will be difficult for Te´O to overcome. Documenting the "touching of hands" when they met in November 2009, and Manti´s saying she was "cute". I believe the story was concocted to raise his public profile and enhance his Heisman and NFL chances.

Now, if the media would just be as diligent in ferreting out and disclosing the hoaxes Obama has perpetrated with is fables about himself...

Hells bells even our "president" had a "composite" girlfriend. Quite common with young "children". Our daughter´s imaginary friend Monte, died when she was four.

Here is the October 12 article from the South Bend Tribune in which the interview with Te´O´s parents is documented. A detailed report on how Manti and "Lennay" first met in November 2009 and how the parents realized over time that she was probably going to be their daughter-in-law:

How many young people will be concocting self-enhancing stories about themselves now that the president has gotten away with it?

This is about the press, ALL the press, not doing thier job. Taking the "facts" as they are given them and NOT checking even the most basic parts

Explains a lot about what we hear on the "news" doesn´t it?

I keep thinking of the old Bob Newhart Show, when Mr. Carlin couldn´t get dates, so when he had to bring a date to a business function, he brought a ladies sweater and draped it over the nearby chair, explaining that his date was in the powder room.

#8 is correct, and #9 shows the same addiction I have to the seinfeld reruns!

Notre Dame has a history of pimping out players for the Heisman, including Paul Hornung, who after a miserable season with ND, beat out Jimm Brown of
Syracuse University, who is considered to be the best athlete of the 20th century.
And ND did it by using the race card. Hornung admits that.
What people are missing here is the complicity of Teo´s parents, who were in line for a big payday with their son. There is also some speculation that Teo used the
mythical girlfriend story to avoid explaining why he didn´t date women at ND.
(A football player of his fame could have his pick of the litter, even in a convent.)
The most important part of the story, however, is the nonexistent reporting that took place.

Ok.. maybe Im just being overly cynical here, but why is it that anymore you have to have some kind of tragic adversity to get attention??? It really came home to me after hearing this story (lie), and then last night while watching American Idol (slow night on TV), there was one boy auditioning. He was nice looking and an average singer, but what they focused on was that he had cancer and lost part of his leg because of it. Now let me say, I think it is tragic and horrible to have had the disease, but why did he have to go in front of the judges with shorts on, just to show he had a artifical leg?? Maybe to get sympathy and a chance to be put thru because of it??

There will be many articles written on this topic, but why is it, that in a time we cant let someone´s abilities speak for themselves, we have to celebrate trials and tribulations, and if you dont have any unusual enough, you have to manufacture them?

Exactly #11. A football player of THIS stature only has an "online" girlfriend? Please. This is an academic all-star and we are being asked to believe he is this stupid about his private life? The ND grand poobahs, his parents, PR experts working as we speak to convince us this is not what it looks like, I think. Bravo #15. It is so embarrassing that we have such an epidemic of people using any sort of adversity to get glory, money, attention, etc.

OK either he´s monumentally stupid or he´s monumentally stupid. There is no other option.

I have to agree with the speculation that he is gay and concocted a girlfriend as a cover.
Being gay and Mormon in a Catholic university he had to stay deeep in the closet.

The guy never phoned her? Never had a video chat? I believe he also has bridge in Brooklyn to sell.

WASHINGTON — In the end, the White House solved the most delicate protocol issue of Tuesday’s state dinner for President François Hollande of France in a dignified but creative way. Seated at President Obama’s right under a shimmering white tent on the South Lawn was Thelma Golden, the director of the Studio Museum in Harlem, who 20 years ago mounted a provocative exhibit at the Whitney Museum of American Art titled “Black Male.” (Snip) To Michelle Obama’s left was Stephen Colbert, the comedian and television host, whose connection to France consists largely in his determination to pronounce his surname as

While the spectacle of the world´s most expensive Olympics, with its inflatable St. Basil´s, technical glitches, unceremonial slip-ups and surreptitious signs of protest, had a global audience captivated, all eyes were on the torch bearers, in particular, gymnast Alina Kabayeva, who also happens to be President Vladimir Putin´s girlfriend. Putin had earlier refuted suggestions that Kabayeva would be afforded the special privilege of wielding the Olympic torch at the opening ceremony. "I´m aware of this [speculation that Kabayeva will light the flame]," he said. "I was told of this by [Kremlin spokesman] Dmitry Peskov. These are the usual red herrings.

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia – This time around, the judges gave Sage Kotsenburg the score he deserved. And Kotsenburg gave the United States the first gold medal of the Sochi Games. Kotsenburg, the 20-year-old from Park City, Utah, stomped a 93.5 on his first run of the inaugural Olympic slopestyle contest and watched it hold up in a massive upset. As top competitors Max Parrot and Mark McMorris of Canada faltered, Kotsenburg took advantage with an array of technical tricks like the Japan air and a double nose-grab. And with Shaun White having dropped out of slopestyle earlier this week, Kotsenburg picked up the

BERLIN — Germans were already smarting from revelations that U.S. intelligence listened in on the phone conversations of Chancellor Angela Merkel. Then came Nulandgate. On Thursday, a video was posted on YouTube in which Victoria Nuland, the top U.S. diplomat for Europe, disparagingly dismissed European Union efforts to mediate the ongoing crisis in the Ukraine by bluntly saying, “F--- the E.U.” On Friday, Merkel, through press attache Christiane Wirtz, described the gaffe as “absolutely unacceptable,” and defended the efforts of Catherine Ashton, the E.U.’s foreign policy chief.

SOCHI, Russia – From the gently rolling Black Sea to the jagged Caucasus Mountains, from gleaming modern stadiums to colorfully ancient Matryoshka dolls, the Sochi Olympics open Friday with every conceivable natural wonder except one. There is a visible lack of joy. The strong-armed dream of Russian President Vladimir Putin has thus far succeeded not in embellishing the Olympic motto, but altering it, from ´´swifter, higher, stronger´´ to, "unfinished, unsettling and uninviting.´´ Along the cramped streets in the Adler neighborhood above Olympic Park, the locals keep their heads down and their expressions grim as they walk through a shopping district

On September 15 one day before Susan Rice made her infamous appearances on various Sunday shows, according to the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee report Morell received an email from the CIA station chief in Libya indicating the Benghazi attacks were “not/not an escalation of protests.” The report does not indicate when Morell read the email, but that same day Morell cut the word “Islamic” from the talking points and left the word “demonstration.”

It´s no surprise that Barack Obama´s authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping´s powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W.

Powerful winds in the Pacific Ocean, which have driven surface heat deep underwater, could be the reason behind the current ‘pause’ in global warming. This is according to a joint Australian and U.S. study which has looked at why there has been a slowdown in the planet’s global average surface temperature over the past decade. Their research shows that trade winds in central and eastern parts of the Pacific have caused warm surface water to sink to the ocean´s depths, reducing the amount of heat in the atmosphere.

From its inception, the strategy behind the Obama administration’s implementation of ObamaCare has been simple: to frontload the benefits and postpone the pain and costs of this massive government intrusion into the private sector for as long as possible. This deceitful approach enabled President Obama run for reelection in 2012 on the spurious promise of extending insurance coverage to the poor and those with pre-existing conditions without being held accountable for the problems with the law that would only become apparent in his second term.

Michelle Obama´s lust for luxury has always been a bit of a problem for her husband and Democrats in general. Jetting off to five star resorts with a large entourage has too much dissonance with the rhetoric denouncing inequality currently in favor with the left. But the First Lady has now outdone herself, and because a picture is worth a thousand words, the damage may be a bit more serious than the occasional grumble over designer shoes and livin´ large.
