Yahoo! Chief: God Bless Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods' "transgressions" have dominated the media since Thanksgiving and, while his actions are in no way excusable, Tiger is probably pretty fed up with his name being plastered all over the internet. In fact, it's likely a lot of people are entirely sick of hearing about Tiger Woods, but there's at least one person who's thankful for Tiger and his transgressions and that person is Yahoo! CEO Carol Bartz.

Yesterday Bartz took the stage at the UBS Media Conference and opined, "God bless Tiger."

According to the The Huffington Post, Bartz emphasized how terrific the golfer's scandals have been for Yahoo!, as hungry users comb the site from front-to-back, homepage to sports section, for the latest photos, videos, and gossip related to his myriad of alleged lovers. Similarly, the Wall Street Journal reports that when asked if Mr. Woods would help the Internet company make the quarter, she said, “Oh, absolutely,” and added that he’s fueling more visits than Michael Jackson’s death.

    Stay classy, Ms. Bartz. You're equating your website with supermarket tabloids.

    Tiger should join Amway, they also screw anything that moves. Amway is a scam, and here's why: Amway wants to pay out as little money as they can get away with, so they support the higher level IBOs ripping off their downline via the tool scam. As a result, about 99% of IBOs operate at a net loss, while the top 1% make several TIMES more from their Amway tool scam than from the Amway products. Read about it on my blog, I suggest you start here: http://tiny.cc/D5oJh and forward the information to everyone you know, so they don't get scammed.
