Low PR Marks for Tiger in Nordegren/Escalade/Uchitel Fracas

This Tiger Woods proto-scandal sure has more Euro-sounding three-syllable proper names than most. (Whatever happened to plain old Paula Jones or Guy Trundle?)

On to the news. In The New York Post, Mike Lupica sums up the general media take:

But we’re supposed to believe that in a rescue worthy of the new series, “Trauma,” his wife had to bust a back window to pull her husband to safety after he ran over a fire hydrant and into a tree.

Not even the people who reported that can possibly believe a version like that. Neither can the Windermere, Fla. police.

Jeepers, everyone is on this story now. Even (motto: “Inspiration, Spirituality, Faith”) is asking, “Did Tiger Woods’ Wife Beat Him Up?”

Most of the respectable papers seem to have moved into “covering the scandal by covering the PR angles” mode. Others fret about Tiger’s brand.

However, The Times of London is now just shamelessly quoting

The world’s No 1 golfer told a friend his wife had “gone ghetto” on him after a report he had been unfaithful to her, according to the celebrity website TMZ.

And The NY Times has an unintentionally funny map of the accident scene, with elements marked “hydrant” and “tree.”
