Tomorrow’s New York Post Manti Te’o Headline ... Today!

Earlier today, Deadspin ran a bombshell story about Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o, whose perseverance in the face of his girlfriend's tragic death from cancer received national media attention and turned into "the most heartbreaking and inspirational story of the college football season." Except that, according to Deadspin's investigation, Te'o's girlfriend never existed. Whether Te'o perpetrated an awful hoax on the country or — as Notre Dame and Te'o contend — was the victim of a cruel prank himself, you can be sure this story will get the full tabloid headline treatment from the New York Post.
