Untrustworthy Writing Example

I would never go so far as to say ESPN would straight up lie about facts featured in an article, but when a story such as this hits, it is in the best economic interest of the company to embellish some facts and leave others out to create more buzz about a story that may not be as complex as initially thought to be. In addition, the title of the article condemns Manti Te’o much more than the actual content of the article does, again suggesting alternative motives for the writers who may just want to make their name known.
