CBS and the golf establishment want Woods to be the story because Woods is, or was, one of the few athletes that transcended his sport. People who didn't follow golf followed Tiger Woods.

The same could be said of Ali and Michael Jordan.

Spot on. I never cared about Basketball until Jordan came along and never, ever watched golf until Tiger came along.

I don’t watch either anymore except NCAA round ball.

I understand their "wants"....

But, IMO the fact is..Woods wasn't the main story at all. But that's the MSM for you....

Pretty good Barack Hussein Obama analogy...there somewhere. Although B.H.O. talent was/is reading TOTUS..and sounding good. Whereas Woods..actually has a talent that is not fake, and worth something.
