Notre Dame's real tragedy


Notre Dame believes their star linebacker Manti Te'o was the victim of a hoax. The athletic director spoke publicly for 38 minutes about his victimized linebacker, which is 38 minutes longer than anyone at Notre Dame spoke publicly about a young woman who reported being sexually assaulted by a football player. That young woman committed suicide. Last Word guest host Ezra Klein talks to Slate's Amanda Marcotte.
