Wrong – Again

Yesterday I posted this about the golfer, Tiger Woods.

Was I ever wrong ! ! I was focusing, like most of the MSM (and “No” I do not consider myself part of the MSM) on the “Tiger Woods” that Mr.Woods wants the world to see.

After watching The Rachel Maddow Show last night, I am happy to say that I can now link to Dave Zirin at “The Nation” who has a whole host of questions about “Tiger Woods, The Brand.”

This squeaky-clean reputation has helped Woods become the richest athlete in history. His career course earnings are $92 million. When you factor in advertisements, corporate appearances and other off-course aspects of “Tiger Inc.,” it makes sense that Tiger Woods is America’s first athlete to reach billionaire status.

. . .

Now that Woods appears to have been involved in a domestic dispute, the media are wondering if there is “another Tiger.” They are desperate to pillory the man for his personal problems. It would be more appropriate if they took this opportunity to scrutinize him for the right reasons. Woods has every right to keep his personal problems personal. But when he makes deals that benefit dictatorships and unaccountable corporations, all in the name of his billion-dollar brand, he deserves no privacy.

This is not a terribly long article.  Maybe a 2-minute read.  It is WELL worth your time.
