Best Of The Web: Six Web Stories About Tiger Woods Scandal
As I look around the web for stories about education, journalism, and social media, I have bookmarked a lot of stories about Tiger Woods saga.
Here are six of the best stories that I found on the web about Woods.
Some are funny. Some are serious. Some are sad.
To me, the most interesting part of the story is the coverage. Blogs, gossip magazines, and the New York Times are all in the same boat covering the same story.
Bad PR Advice?
This article from the National Sports Journalism Center says that Tiger is getting some bad PR (you think). But seriously, the point is that silence is the worst thing for Tiger right now.
Map of Tiger's Women
There is a Google Map of women that reportedly had a "relationship" with Woods. The website notes that " to keep the map manageable, please only include those since he's been married."
This map is public and can updated by anyone, so the owner claims no responsibility for the accuracy of its content.
Does Tiger Deserve Privacy?
This blog posted from Mashable laments the decrease in privacy for public figures.
It says, "it’s not our God-given right to know what Tiger does in his personal life, as many seemed to think it was in the days following his accident."
You could argue that famous people have a "lesser" degree of privacy than others. But I liked the write-up.
Tech Could Have Kept Tiger's Secrets
I am advocating cheating on your significant other, but Woods made some classic mistakes (so I have been told). This story from the tech website, Gizmodo, says tech could have helped Tiger cover his tracks.
There are two of the basic tips
1. Never use your own cellphone to call mistresses. ALWAYS have a pre-paid cell phone.
2. NEVER leave your name on a voicemail.
The Tiger Woods Slowjam
I have to admit. I LOVE this youtube video. It takes the infamous Tiger Woods voice mail to one of his mistresses and puts it to music.
Message: he knows how to treat the ladies right.
More to Come?
Deadspin had a really good write-up about the sexual habits of famous men. The clear message is that Tiger is not the only big name with some "baggage".
The article talks about Tiger and his Vegas trips. But the article implies that Tiger is not alone when it comes to the Vegas nightlife.
