A look at how the media impacts athletes.

I found this video on Youtube and found it very interesting.  It looks at the hero versus villain cases of Kobe Bryant, Michael Vick,  Lance Armstrong, and others.  The video also looks at the influence of the media on people, including an interview and Q and A with a young child.

Later on, they talk about how Tiger Woods is a great model for his skill and clean off the field record.  I found it interesting how that has completely changed with his recent scandals.

This was created by Michigan State students, and I think it is a really good representation of what we are talking about in class.
