Tiger Woods vs. Terror Attacks

As Mediaite's Glynnis MacNicol points out, the New York Post ran Tiger Woods' infidelity as a cover story for 20 consecutive days as of Friday December 18, 2009. That beats the 9/11 attacks' 19-straight cover stories in 2001. (See the Post's cover archive here.)

Quips MacNicol, "Tiger Woods is apparently just as good, or better, at selling newspapers and magazines due to bad behavior as he is at selling sports paraphernalia due to good golf behavior."

That's true. But what does it say about the Post's 9/11 coverage? Only that it was another hot cover story.
