I have always believed in journalistic integrity of TMZ but they posted an article reportedly from “sources close to the situation” about Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren Woods’ divorce and this quote gives me pause:
The big issue, we’re told — Tiger wants either custody or visitation, and assurance that he can go into court and enforce the agreement if Elin violates it. We’re told Tiger wants the option to go to either a Swedish or American court to enforce the custody agreement.
What big issue? What does that paragraph actually say? It says NOTHING. Obviously any person going through a divorce with kids involved will have either custody or visitation issues and/or rights. That’s obvious. Why did TMZ need a “source” to “exclusively” tell them the painfully obvious? Then, the paragraph goes on to say Tiger wants to enforce it in either Sweden or America. And I’m scratching my head like, huh? Obviously, wherever he and Elin divorce, if they do, he obviously would want to, and would be able to, enforce the order in the jurisdiction that rendered it. So I’m confused. That must be a new writer or intern who wrote that one for TMZ because they are really a good source of information and scoops usually. But this one is not a scoop. It’s not a big newsflash or exclusive. It’s a non-scoop. A total non-scoop and it’s perplexing why they are calling it an “exclusive.”
It’s clear who ever wrote it had no more information than the rest of us on this issue.
