They continue to try and engineer the news. The Te'o story - of which they have some answering to do, considering when they knew what they knew - is buried on the periphery of their website, while such important topics as "NFL Draft" and "Texas QBs" take center stage. I'm not saying I want to see Notre Dame's shame splashed across the screen, but it's just indicative of the role ESPN have happily assumed over the past decade or so: that of masters in the art of deflection and obfuscation. No doubt their reticence in reporting this debacle has something to do with their evident conflict between reporting the news and MAKING the news. We've seen this before - when the Penn State tragedy was unfurling, the Worldwide Leader were mum, preferring to distract us with bread and circuses. Nothing to see here, that's for sure. (Tragedy doesn't move product, but Tebow sure does!) They were unconscionably - irresponsibly - quiet on the Bernie Fine/Syracuse scandal. Again, I don't want to see Notre Dame's good name tarnished in the press, but I'd rather that be a result of there being nothing to report, as opposed to it not being reported.

You, sir, are a lying troll. Seeing Notre Dame's good name tarnished is precisely what you want to see. You are incapable of convincing anyone on this board of any honorable purpose.
