Ed Bradley/Tiger Woods : Ahmad Rashad/Michael Jordan

Phil Mushnick writes about Mike Wallace's claim that  Tiger and Co. "dictated the ground rules for what correspondent Ed Bradley could and could not ask," Richard Sandomir pens a must read critique of the interview. (Thanks to reader John for the link.)
Bradley looked to be enjoying himself too much as he smiled and chuckled along with Woods in various locales, conjuring comparisons to the buddy act of Ahmad Rashad and Michael Jordan, who, like Woods, surrenders so little to journalists but whose consent to be interviewed is deemed an occasion to send a camera crew.

This puffy profile reminded me of a "documentary" about Woods — "Son, Hero, Champion" — that preceded CBS's fourth-round coverage of the Masters in 1997. It was produced by IMG, the agency that represents Woods, so you know how objective and unconflicted it was.
