El culebrón de Tiger Woods nos sirve para ponderar las trivialidades que rondan por los medios contemporáneos de información.
Coincido con los autores que proponen que este “escándalo” se relaciona más con el pulso mediático de hoy y sus servidumbres que con la propia persona del deportista. Comparto, pues, una nota recién publicada por Alternet sobre este tema, que comienza así:
“[Disclaimer:I don’t know anything at all about Tiger or Elin Woods but am going to write about them anyway.]
“Everything that’s been written about Tiger Woods is wrong; that is, every inference and judgment about the meaning of his actions (the paltry slivers of it that we think we know) has nothing to do with him and everything to do with us.
“Not a single author or commentator among the hundreds who have weighed in on Woods’ life, marriage, morals, choices, or psychology has ever met or spent any time with him. Thus, everything that’s been said has been a response to our projections onto images that Tiger Woods and we have jointly created.”
