There is something wrong with our society when every channel has Tiger Woods' Apology

Posted on 02/19/2010 7:56:54 AM PST by Red in Blue PA

WTH is going on here? Is this really that important? Every news channel is waiting for his press conference.....CNBC even has people talking about how this will affect endorsements.

It's not like we hav a corrupt government, housing crisis, massive unemployment, two wars or anything!

Pathetci does not begin to describe it. Who cares what this person has to say? Am I the only one who is disgusted?

Scandals, etc. grab lots of eyes to TV and ears to talk radio. Michael Jackson, John Edwards, Patches Kennedy,
Tiger Woods, steroids, Jon and Kate, etc.

Can we film the operation? Is the head dead yet? You know the boys in the newsroom got a running bet. Get the widow on the set, we need dirty laundry. The bubble headed bleach blonde comes on at 5. She can tell you ‘bout the plane crash with a gleam in her eye. It’s interesting when people die, give us dirty laundry.

Gee, I haven’t seen it yet. You must be watching too much TV, or the wrong Channels, or I’m just too highly selective.

And I play Golf. Maybe we need some TV screens in the Golf carts ? Yeah, and ONLY play Tiger’s Apology on that station, as its connected to Golf (somehow).

I’m not watching, but I’m curious about one thing: is Elin there?

(I hope not.)

I think that was his point. Said something was wrong with society. Nothing is personal or private these days. Everything is socialized and on its way to being federalized.

btw my cable system took Tru TV and MSNBC off my tier. Then they got back on; COPS, etc. on Tru TV, and we know what’s on the other channel.

Now I tune and and guess what, Comcast has messages on each channel: NOT AUTHORIZED. In other words, it’s off the tier again.

I’M REALLY GONNA MISS...TRU-TV :)

The question isn’t whether it is particularly important ... the question is whether there is anything else more important that must be covered at this very moment. 24-hour news networks have a lot of time to fill ... so they’ll seize on any remotely interesting breaking story that they can.

It isn’t as if they’re pre-empting coverage of anythign else worth watching. Maury Povich, Jerry Springer, and Family Feud reruns are likely worth pre-empting for Tiger Woods.

Well, Woods is also big business. And I do mean big. Other peoples’ lives and livelihoods have been impaired by this guy’s degeneracy. I can think of a lot of stockholders who hope Woods has had an epiphany.

Am I supposed to feel good about this "apology"??

Long run...I feel sorry for the kids because the marriage will forever be in doubt.

This sociopath is just an empty suit whose only skills are to con his mistresses and wife and to hit little balls into little holes. imho, only entertainment programs should break away for his so-called apology.

There’s a reason the TV comes first in “TV news”. News channels are no different than any other channel, their job is to get you to watch commercials, any information they convey is purely an accident and should not be considered indicative of future performance.

Ah yes, another phony apology and public act of contrition. He will immediately become a idol of the left, which love nothing more than groveling rich people.

I recall reports ELIN was smashed the car window with a Golf Club..Hummm?

I'm sure he is sorry. But I am done with him. He made his money on his clean public image and NOW he begs for privacy. Right.

Now, when all else fails, he's found religion.

he only owes an apology to his family and the companies he signed contracts with. I never bought anything this man was selling, and don’t much care.

Yeah. Says he always has been. It was the faith of his mother. Buddha doesn’t offer freedom from the bonds of sin and true forgiveness.

“Unfortunately I’m not kidding. Earlier this morning FOX news had satellite pictures with a route marked on it.”

No way!

Did you catch the audible sniffle at the end, before he hugged his mom.

What a performance. Author!

He’s hugging some woman.

Is that his wife?

I have it on mute.

Ohhh. Now, he’ hugging a guy.

Hmmmmm.

Is there something else Tiger isn’t telling?

Elin is not there.

When Woods first started his lengthy statement, I envisioned two women in bikinis standing on either side of him, pawing him as he spoke. That would make an interesting skit for “Saturday Night Live.”

Tiger’s statement just ended....he hugged his mother in the audience and a few other people. Cameras were clicking away the entire time he spoke.

His PR people are giving him bad advise, he should have stuck with his original privacy instincts.
