For those of you that have been hiding under a rock, in the last week or so, it’s been reported CONSTANTLY by the mainstream media that Tiger Woods has cheated on his wife Elin. And really, why are they reporting on such a thing? Is it really news? I mean, people cheat, whether we think it’s ok or not. And celebrities cheat too – they’re people. And celebrities have cheated, are cheating and probably will continue to cheat into the future. I mean, in my opinion, nonsense like this is not really newsworthy in the sense that some other things are. Shouldn’t we be more focused on things like:
- Healthcare reform, or the lack of it, and trying to figure out a way to lower costs and get coverage to people;
- The revolution that many Iranians dream of;
I realize that some people love gossip about the stars – it’s what they live for. And I realize that the world that we live in can lead to people feeling depressed. And you know what, I too love trolling sites like Perez Hilton or TMZ.com for the occasional mindless fun that is celebrity gossip and I love looking at pictures of what people are wearing. And it’s a nice distraction to what is going on in the world. But that isn’t news. And neither is Tiger Woods and his extramarital activity.
