Tabloids win big in Tiger tale

Rachel Uchitel arrives from New York at the Los Angeles International Airport in Los Angeles on Sunday, Nov. 29, 2009. The National Enquirer published a story alleging that golfer Tiger Woods, who was involved in a car accident near his home on Friday, had been seeing the New York night club hostess, and that they recently were together in Melbourne, where Woods competed in the Australian Masters.

My quaintly naive goal for today: Have this be my only Tiger-related post.

We'll see. It got off to an ominous start when I turned on the TV to find Rita Ewing, Patrick's ex, on CBS talking about the culture of infidelity in the NBA.

The big event later today apparently will be Rachel Uchitel admitting all in L.A., even after an emphatic denial of all in the Post the other day.

 If so, it will be another victory for the National Enquirer.

The big media news to come out of all this is that most of the public was inclined to believe the initial reports in the Enquirer, TMZ and US Weekly.

Next time, most people will be even more inclined to believe such sources.

Which is very bad news for naughty celebrities.
