TIGER WOODS FINALLY spoke to the public last week, nearly three months after revelations of his sexual escapades became tabloid fodder. Woods orchestrated a press conference where he presented his statement to only a handful of reporters and cameras, took no questions, and disappeared.
When the Golf Writers Association of America learned of the ground rules before the event, they declined to cover the press conference. The 950-member organization was offered six seats for reporters who would be in the same room as Woods during the event, but they would not be permitted to ask questions. Only the Associated Press, Reuters and Bloomberg News accepted the restrictions.
Would you stand on your principles and refuse the access? Or would you accept the ground rules as presented?
