Tiger's real crime? Not playing the media's game
The worst anti-Tiger argument being made is the one about Tiger disrespecting the police by refusing to be interviewed. This is Sally Jenkins' pathetic argument in the Washington Post. Newspapers are supposed to be the watchdogs of democracy. Journalists should know what separates us from the oppressive countries/governments we invade and/or despise. We're not a police state. We have a right to remain silent. We have the freedom to avoid self-incrimination and/or incriminating our spouse. We have teenage boys and girls dying in foreign countries just so the police can't barge through our doors, detain us and force us to talk. But Tiger is evil for exercising the most fundamental right we enjoy? He's stupid because he wants to deal with his marital problems in private? He owes the public an apology for promises he broke to his wife? This is all a bad joke. This whole affair highlights why the mainstream media have lost the public's trust. We don't deserve it. We're controlled by hidden agendas. Tiger won't invite us to his private party. And now that we've been given this slight opening, we're going to try to convince you that he's a horrible person, morally unfit to wear Jack Nicklaus' crown.
