Nearly every time there is a major story, a TV personality follows up with an incredibly irresponsible comment. And 90% of the time, it comes from a CNN “talent.” Today was no different.
Following Tiger Woods’ frightening car crash, in which he suffered multiple leg injuries, CNN anchor Andy Scholes went on live TV to say he wasn’t at all surprised to see Woods crash and be extracted from the vehicle with the jaws of life because of the golfer’s history using painkillers. Did the police say Woods was using painkillers before the crash? No, Scholes is just assuming.
Here is the moron making an insensitive comment with zero proof:

“Not entirely surprised by what we’re seeing here. Tiger, back in 2017, was found by police pulled over to the side of the road, asleep in his car. He had said he had taken a lot of painkillers at that time because we all know Tiger has undergone a lot of surgeries over the years and painkillers have become a part of his life.”
Was that speculation necessary?
Awful. And that word is usually reserved for Scholes’ colleagues: Anderson Cooper, Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon, Jake Tapper, Brian Stelter, Oliver Darcy, and Erin Burnet. Did I miss anyone?
We wish Tiger the best. As for CNN, you remain the worst.
