Tiger Woods Apologizes for 'Transgressions' -- Vulture Media Still in Hot Pursuit

Still in hot pursuit of its prey -- all the intimate details of Tiger Woods' life -- the media has scored again. Tiger Woods has posted an apology for cheating on his wife. But as the cable news channels whine endlessly: Tiger didn't tell us the intimate details. But never mind that because our salacious print media has already published plenty of the juicy details.

Woods made another plea for a little respect for his family's privacy, insisting that "personal sins should not require press releases." It's hard not to sympathize with him, but he probably should have thought of that before he cheated on his wife and betrayed his family umpteen times, according to our vulture tabloid media. Anyway, if Woods wants privacy, he should consider giving away his fame and fortune because as long as people can make money off of invading Woods' privacy, he won't have any:

The web site posting came hours after US Weekly magazine put Woods on its cover, released Wednesday, alleging he had a two-plus-year affair with a Los Angeles cocktail waitress. It also comes comes a week after the National Enquirer reported that Woods had an affair with a New York VIP host -- a charge the woman strongly denies, and less than a week after he was involved in a car accident.

The US Weekly report claims that Jaimee Grubbs has more than 300 text messages from Woods, and the US Weekly Web site posted a voice mail Grubbs says is Woods calling her last week and asking to change the ID on her phone so that his wife wouldn't recognize it.

Grubbs says she met Woods at a Las Vegas nightclub the week after the 2007 Masters -- two months before Woods' wife, Elin Nordegren, gave birth to their first child.

Wednesday morning, the magazine published what it said was a voice mail provided by Grubbs that she said was left by Woods on Nov. 24, three days before his early morning car crash. In the voicemail, a man, who calls himself "Tiger," asks Grubbs to take her name off her phone.

"My wife went through my phone," the man's voice said. "And, uh, may be calling you.'

The call ends with the man saying: "You gotta do this for me. Huge. Quickly."
