Good morning, Netizens…
Everyone in the news media seems to have taken their shots at Tiger Woods lately, so it comes as no surprise that cartoonist David Horsey hauls off and takes a shot of his own. Why should that surprise anyone?
Unfortunately, the news stories of Woods’ infidelities with various women does not seem to be related in any way to his undeniable ability to play golf with incredible skill, but it does impact his billion dollar bottom line in other ways. Global consulting firm Accenture Ltd. became the first major sponsor to drop Woods. The move ends a six-year relationship during which Accenture credited its “Go on, be a Tiger” campaign with boosting its image significantly.
Everyone, it seemed, once wanted a piece of Tiger Woods, but as of last week, Woods announced on his web site that he was leaving golf, at least for awhile. When or if he will return hasn’t been discussed, but it does seem premature for the news media to continue to put stories of his infidelities on page one. It is not news anymore.
