The wordsmiths over at With Leather put together this collage of NY Post covers about the Tiger Woods scandal over the last month.
The New York Post featured Tiger Woods on its cover this morning, making it the 20th consecutive day that the golfer has been front and center.
Previously, the longest-running fixture on the front page was the 9/11 attacks.
In regards to news value, there’s no doubt that the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil > a golfing superstar stepping out on his wife, so what does this tell us about our current media climate?
I’d get on my soapbox about this, but all it would be is hypocrisy. The story has been page-view candy for us, the company as a whole and anyone else with a keyboard and a microphone to the world’s electronic ear.
It has everything: sex, money, a fall from grace, cocktail waitresses, constant unsubstantiated rumors and on and on. But, I’m sensing that people are finally getting tired of being assailed with it.
Right or wrong?
