Helping to Sell More Tabloids and Take Focus Away From Healthcare

  • Dec 9, 2009
Rating:
-3
Is there anyone out there like me that wishes this story would go away like the Octomom, Miss California and the White House gate crashers tales.  This is getting way too much coverage.  I guess the news outlets feel the general public is becoming extremely bored about the debates still raging on Healthcare and Afganistan. 

What is it that makes the general public love it when a "good guy" is exposed as being human like the rest of us.  I guess some of these same people are foaming at the mouth hoping for a slip up from Derek Jeter or Donny Osmond.  Will we ever return to the days where news focuses on things that really matter to our personal lives such as the economy, energy, war, elections, war, etc.  Unfortunately these topics bore the average person raised on MTV reality shows.

What did you think of this review?

Your completely nailed it!! I am so tired on Tiger Woods and his personal life being in my living room every night. Enough already. We dont know all the facts, and further more, we dont need to know. Its his life. Not ours. The news media had stooped to a record breaking low if this is all they can report on. Whats worse, the general public has lowered its standards by being the all mighty snoop patrol and wanting to know all the gory details. Just pathetic. Let this story die. All these people saying they wont buy any of his product endorsements.......who care's you're probably too old to golf or wear tennis shoes anyway.

You state the obvious quite well! You should probably post your own review.

I don't really care what any celebrity does or thinks. I like to think I have better things to do.

I was especially troubled to hear people in public saying Tiger Woods needs to work on his morals. In my opinion this story is taking away from more important issues, and his personal life should not be a headline. However, with the recent Jon and Kate controversy fading away the gossip mill needs something new to talk about, so they have decided to focus in on Woods. I do not agree with it, but there may objective is web page views and magazine sales of course!

I very vaguely (thank goodness) know about Jon and Kate because I do not watch reality shows (never have, never will!). This is because their pictures are plastered on the covers of all those tabloids at the checkout counter of the supermarket. I did notice yesterday that Tiger is all over the covers now.

Actually I am not ashamed of having watched Jon and Kate. It was a cute series, but I think the media was unfair to them. I tend to be super tolerant when it comes to people and their life choices, and some of the TLC series can be interesting. I still find the time to read books and do my hobbies, and TV is just something fun to watch once and awhile.

I was not saying you should be ashamed of watching reality tv Sweetiepie. I am just saying that I personally don't like it. I am sure that the show had some good points but it is just difficult for me to focus on one of these shows long enough to sift out the good points. As most of your reviews show a lot of depth, I think you are chock full of great ideas and are good at expressing them.
December 10, 2009
I understand that reality tv is not for everyone. I could not stand to watch it every day, but once and awhile I do. I do appreciate that you have said would should be focusing more on the health care debate on not what celebrities are up to every second.

"Will we ever return to the days where news focuses on things that really matter to our personal lives such as the economy, energy, war, elections, war, etc.  Unfortunately these topics bore the average person raised on MTV reality shows."

Wow, I've never really thought about this, but you're right.  This is probably why are the papparazzi and those celebrity gossip rags and blogs are booming.  Seeing the age that I grew up in, I've never known a time when celebrity scandals didn't make big news, so I've been guilty of following up.  Thanks for the thought-provoking review, Michael!

Tiger Woods is Human despite his Considerable Skills as a Golfer...
It is difficult to give this data point a rating. It is an issue between a man and his wife and nobody else’s business. Who is Tiger Woods? The man is arguably one of the greatest golf players of all time. News of his infidelity have reached widespread coverage because of his fame. So does this make him any less of a human being? Well, it all depends on how you look at it….     For me, it seems like when we see him play, you can’t help but admire his skills. The …

Sports stars are rarely paragons of virtue!!!
First, I have never played golf in my life!  Second, I am a retired army officer, an adjunct professor in history and have studied philosophy in graduate school.  So, why am I weighing in on Tiger Woods.  Throughout my life I have become disappointed in observing in American society how many young people have idolized professionals in the sports and entertainment fields.  Kids have posters of their favorite athletes and entertainers on their bedroom walls, and not of people …

There's something strange about the culture of Celebrity in America.  Tiger Woods put himself out in the public eye and as a result his little affair has garnered him a lot of attention by the press.  I've never been too interested in the lives of celebrity or the gossip.  When Anna Nicole Smith died, for instance, finding something else to watch was a test.  When Michael Jackson was accused of child molestation it was tough to figure out what to watch to get away from the media …

*steps up onto soap box*   Why is it my business who Tiger Woods is, has or has ever had sex with? I know the answer is that this is America and Americans love to be up in people's bedrooms. And why are so many people saying it's his fall from grace. A god on the golf course, maybe, but he's just a very rich dude . If you are one of those people who assume that because somebody gets paid an insane amount of money to sing, act, play sports, run governments exceptionally well (in most cases), …

Support for Tiger Woods
Tiger Woods,   If you are reading this, I just want to send you my love and support.  I do not think what is happening to you is fair nor do I think that it is anyone's business.  I hope that you can stay strong through this and realize that you can shine through this difficult time.  There are so many people out here who agree that the media has exposed your situation way too much.  I beleive that none of what has been said about you or written about you makes you …
Quick Tip by . December 05, 2009
We fawn after celebrity and spend money and time on it, then feign shock when it explodes in our faces. Silliness.
Quick Tip by . December 05, 2009
It's what we call a "Ho" in one! (sorry)....
Quick Tip by . December 03, 2009
Affairs don't justify domestic violence, if that's what happened. Women commit DV as often as men. 1/3 of serious injury victims are male.
Quick Tip by . December 03, 2009
Could you imagine what we could accomplish if we spent this much attention on the issues that TRULY matter?!?

About this topic

Wiki

On November 27, 2009, Tiger Woods was taken to hospital after an early morning car accident near his home, reportedly in serious condition. Woods was leaving his home around 2:30 a.m. (EST) in his SUV, a 2009 Cadillac Escalade, when he collided with a fire hydrant and a tree down the street. The Florida Highway Patrol said that the crash was not alcohol-related, but continued to investigate. Woods was released from the hospital in good condition; his agent said that Woods was fine, and had been treated for facial lacerations. The airbags in his SUV did not deploy which suggested that he was not travelling above 33mph. On November 29, Woods issued a statement saying the car accident was his fault, but is a private matter. He praised his wife Elin for getting him out of the car. Details about what caused the accident were not revealed. Two days before the accident, The National Enquirer had published a story that alleged that Woods had had an affair with nightclub manager Rachel Uchitel‎, which she denied. Woods said, "the many false, unfounded, and malicious rumors that are currently circulating about my family and me are irresponsible".

On December 1, 2009, Woods was charged by the Florida Highway Patrol with one charge of careless driving. The fine is $164 and 4 points on his driving license.[35] The Florida Highway Patrol indicated that upon payment of the fine, the case is closed.

Also on December 1, Woods announced that he would not be attending his own ...
