Tiger Woods, a professional golfer, faced a highly publicized scandal in 2009 when news broke that he had extramarital affairs with multiple women. The media coverage of his personal life and the scandal was intense, with many news outlets publishing salacious details and speculation about his actions and motivations.
Some critics argued that the media's coverage of the scandal was exploitative, focusing more on sensationalism and scandal than on the actual impact of Woods' behavior on his family, career, and the sport of golf. The intense media scrutiny and negative coverage had a significant impact on Woods' personal and professional life, leading to a decline in his performance on the golf course and a loss of lucrative endorsement deals.
Overall, while Woods' behavior was certainly a factor in the scandal and its fallout, many people feel that the media's exploitation of the situation exacerbated the negative consequences for him and his family.
