Tiger scolds media in apology

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by Mediator, Dec 2, 2009.

    The bulk of Tiger's apology is actually a complaint of the media treatment he has gotten since the accident. Does he have a point?

    Even if he does, is this the right time for him to air it?

    Yes, I've been cheating on my wife for years with every dirty skank that looked twice at me, and I would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for you damn, meddling media!

    When you make a vast majority of your living on the image you portray, you better be portraying that right image all the damn time.

    Spoiled little shit. Fuck him. I hope TMZ, et al, rake him thru the fucking coals for the next 25 years.

    Maybe 25 days. This will blow over pretty soon, I suspect.

    Boy, you hate everyone who's more rich and famous than you, don't you. :) :)

    This isn't just hate. It's heading into Jim Larranaga territory. :)

    I hate the media — except when you're fawning over me and speculating about how many grand slam titles I will win, thus driving my exposure through the roof and netting me 90 percent of my incredibly ridiculous wealth through endorsements

    You need help. I can suggest a few options, if you'd like. :)

    Or: I have spent years manipulating you into building my personal legend. How dare you deviate from the narrative?

    How about Mason Nation spam to his doorstep? :D

    He does not have a point. If he doesn't want the National Enquirer and US Weekly snooping around, he should keep the driver in the bag.

    As I told a coach one day, "We don't write about kids getting arrested when they don't get arrested. It's simple really."

    Same deal here: You don't want people writing about your affairs? As Ace said, keep it in your pants.
