Tiger Woods was the untouchable golden boy of golf. While some politicians may be off limits for obvious reasons, we now see that celebrities aren’t, after witnessing the media’s character assassination blitz against the worlds #1 Athlete.
In yesteryear, such stars as Michael Jordan and politicians as John F. Kennedy enjoyed the media’s lack of thorough reporting when an incident would negatively affect their image. Not to say Jordan was out there doing the same thing Tiger Woods was, but stuff like punching his teammate in the face, his addiction to gambling, were not thoroughly reported, and probably hardly investigated. In a capitalistic country, this is somewhat understandable when you’re a breathing, walking, and living product known in many living rooms across the country.
