The Nose: Zero Dark 30, Manti Te'o's Deception, & Lance Comes Clean

 

I made today's Nose panelists go see Zero Dark Thirty, just to make sure we all had one controversy we could discuss. 
 
That was before I realized how generous the week would be with controversy. The labyrinthine story of football player Manti Te'o and his imaginary girlfriend sneaked up on me. That's the fresh sports scandal making the wires buzz right now. 
 
But last night's sit-down between Oprah Winfrey and Lance Armstrong breathed new life into an old sports scandal.
 
So we'll have both of those for you today, but first we will talk about that movie that's already winning best picture awards despite the gnawing sense that it glosses over - or maybe even endorses -- the use of torture by American interrogators. Zero Dark Thirty has been clawing at me all week long.

EMAIL FROM ROBERT:

Hooray for the woman who just confessed that she "just doesn't care."
Put Lance in the same sound-proofed box as Bill Clinton, Elliot Spitzer,
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Gov.
Sanford, and probably Governor Rowland, and save us from their recoveries.
They've all desqualified
themselves from being either believed or heard. Heard about, too.
Thanks,
