There is this uncanny resemblance to a recent Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) investigative program called The Passionate Eye, read here, in which the private story of Tiger Wood and how his sex-ploits were exposed, and that the story of Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim, and his private life.
It appears Tiger Woods the celebrity, a billion dollar brand name, is apparently not the same as the "other" Tiger who would prowled sleazy joints, greasy diners and high class brothels looking for a women who would have sex with him.
In that program, CBC interviewed a journalist from the National Enquirer, and found out the tabloid had the story of Tiger's philandering life way before his "famous" accident, but was dictated by Tiger's powerful publicity outfit to kill the story! The Enquirer agreed the story be "killed" if it agrees to a quid pro quo where Tiger would appear on the front page of the Enquirer sister's magazine.
Two things here, one Tiger Woods life as a billion dollar brand man is carefully dictated and crafted by his very powerful publicity company. Two, come what may, Tiger's name and reputation must be protected at all cost in view of billions being invested in his name by big companies.
Like our Brother Anwar, he can also be called a billion dollar man, when he was in power and when he is now not in power. Somehow his life is also being carefully dictated, guarded, and crafted by a group of "powerful' people that came complete with their own personal agenda.
For Brother Anwar's persona, we Malaysians then knew him only as a suave politician and government official that, looking back, can lie to us through his teeth without us realising it. He was a seductive politician that can charmed even the most venomous king cobra to submission.
Like Tiger Woods, golfers around the world idolise and adulate him. Now we all know that like Brother Anwar Ibrahim, he is in fact a dud of a human being and that very dark side of the both of them made me squirm with disgust.
Don't get me wrong here, I have nothing against these two if they just your ordinary Joe Blow,who cares! But both portray themselves as a squeaky clean normal human being when they are fraught with lies and abnormal deviant behaviors!
I used to love watching Tiger and idolised him as a golfer, but now whenever I see him all I can see is that waitress at the sleazy diner he had sex with, and a pole dancer woman who was with him for three years and had one miscarriage and an abortion with Tiger's child.
CBC announced that it will continue with another story when the time is right, about Tiger Woods' love child!
If you ask me personally I believe his career as a golfer is not all that interesting anymore, and that Brother Anwar had better come out clean for you really cannot run away from it forever, for eventually the law will get you.
