Tiger Woods addresses carefully controlled media cabal, says he’s "deeply sorry" and blames media for his troubles.

After admitting he has a problem Tiger attacked the very media that made him a star. Estranged wife Elin was NOT in attendance.

"Please leave my wife and kids alone… I have brought this on myself and I need to change"

From the artful manipulation of non-emotion, hand picked press and carefully scripted  verbiage you’d think the potent putter was a POW with a gun to his head.

Tiger also admitted to straying from the path of Buddhism, and is returning to treatment for his addiction to being a serial cheater. He may return to golf "at some point" and is "not ruling out 2010."

Karma, ain’t it a bitch – especially when it’s scripted.
