Audio: Talking through the absurdity of the Manti Te'o fable

By Tim Graham

What in the world is going on with Manti Te'o? How did the journalism process abet this mess? And why would the Buffalo Bills still be interested in drafting him?

Those are a few of the questions Shredd and Ragan talked with me about this morning on 103.3 The Edge in Buffalo.

The preposterous tale of Te'o's fictitious dead girlfriend has been transcendent with all of the intriguing elements: Notre Dame mythology, an outlandish social-media hoax, too many unanswered questions.

Have a listen to the 22-minute audio clip as we try to get our minds around this amazing story.
