Tiger Woods: More Than Enough

Saturday, February 20, 2010

What does CNN, E! News, CNBC, ESPN, and your local news station all have in common besides the fact that they all cover some sort of news?

Though they all tend to have their own different beat, they all have over-abundantly covered a man known as Tiger Woods. He's a celebrity on E! News, an athlete on ESPN, and simply a news worthy figure on large and local media stations.

Woods' 13 1/2 minute speech was covered by dozens of broadcast networks, cable news outlets and online streams. Not to mention it was viewed by millions of people.

The apology for his "sexual adventures" took place the TPC Sawgrass, home of the PGA Tour, in Ponte Vedra, Florida.

Though it can't really be considered a press conference because he didn't take any questions, the speech could be found anywhere and everywhere. Because it was during the workday, much of it was streamed online.

ESPN seemed to be the leader of coverage. It was broadcasted not only on ESPN, ESPNEWS and ESPN2, but also on ESPN.com, ESPN radio and ESPN Mobile.

E! News also didn't waste any time with getting articles out about it on their website, eonline.com. They have had 11 articles up and ready for the world to see since his talk.

One could even find Woods on Twitter under the popular thread "tigershouldve".

His wife, Elin, was not there to support him. His mother, however, was bravely sitting in the front row.

If you missed his speech, don't fret. It is beyond easy to find in our world of media.

I found this blog not only comical, but helpful! I must have been on another planet this past weekend, but I somehow haven't watched any news Tiger-related, so after reading this you've given me more than enough ideas of where I can go to find this news!

I'm glad to hear that Tiger finally came out and said his apologies, and not surprised that his wife was a no-show. I wonder what's next for Tiger now?

I'm glad that news stations/sites are trying to make sure the public hears of Tiger's apology, but I think he is getting too much coverage. It's annoying to turn on the TV anymore and hear about Tiger's scandal. He spoke his apology live on Friday. I think it's time the media industry gets over it and finds a new topic to obsess over.

I can't stand this type of publicity. I mean he did what he did and it is over with. All weekend i saw something concerning this matter. How is this as important as a large mudslide that happened this weekend. The fact that all he is doing is trying to help improve his image is pathetic. I feel like that too many people care about something that is so irrelevent to many issues happening in this world right now. I also agree with you Katelyn, why do they need to obsess? I mean there are many more important topics than that of someone who slept with many women.
