That the sports media failed to verify Te’o’s story and subsequently built up a heroic story that was nothing more than a fraud, however, is painfully obvious. This, unfortunately, is a familiar pattern in sports, where heroes are built on against-the-odds or larger-than-life stories that aren’t verified or properly vetted until it’s too late. Then, when a story-shattering revelation comes to the surface, the media forgets the image it helped create and turns its attention to destroying that image piece by piece. Little attention is ever paid to its own role in the process.
