Just when we thought things were beginning to look up for Oprah Winfrey, her highly successful magazine takes a fall. According to a new report, O, The Oprah Magazine is down millions of dollars in advertising sales in comparison to last year.
The Association of Magazine Media reports that ad sale revenue for O, The Oprah Magazine was $48.8 million in 2011. However, this year ad sales are at a low of $34.2 million, which translates to a decrease of 24.1 percent. The magazine's newsstand sales have also been declining as of late.
According to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, in the second half of 2011 sales declined by a whopping 32 percent, while on average the decline with other major magazines was merely 10 percent.

Oprah Backs Obama but Not Going to Be Out There
Oprah Winfrey said today that while she is not going to be out there as a booster for President Obama during the 2012 general election campaign, her support has not dimmed.
Im 100 percent behind our president. I actually love our president, and have the utmost respect for him and that office and what it takes to be there, Winfrey told Charlie Rose on CBS This Morning.
I will not be out there because Im trying to fix a network, she said.
Oprah appeared last month at an intimate, high-dollar fundraiser for Obamas re-election effort at the Atlanta home of actor-producer Tyler Perry.
Women watched Oprah because her show was on free TV.
They got the magazine with a one time cheap sign up subscription and can’t afford to renew it at it’s regular price.
They don’t have Oprah in their home everyday telling them to buy what she buys, vote how she votes and care about what she cares about...they are sheep without a shepherd.
Out of sight, out of mind....that simple.
Lay down with Obama, get up with fleas
I'm actually surprised it turned out that way. The way those fainting women fans of hers would shriek and cry and clap when she came out on stage.....I thought they'd follow her off a cliff.
Just the shipping costs must have gone up dramatically, not to mention other production costs affected by the high cost of gas.
So I would guess production and shipping costs are way up as readership is way down.
Used to go to Reverend Wrights church, would not be surprised if she was also a fan of Bell and CRT.
Yeah, the half that have jobs that would pay for the magazine.
Her daily place in this market was taken over by Ellen. Hopefully the sheep aren’t grazing there.
Oprah is no more!!! She is another victim of her undying love for “radioactive, failed POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama!!! Oprah should have shunned Obama like a bad habit. She did not, and....by her own actions, fawning over the failed POTUS, she has killed her own career and lost millions!!!
Hope the rest of Black Americans wake up and come to the conclusion that POTUS Obama is not their friend. Never was and never will be!!! Loyalty to Obama will keep American Blacks at the bottom of the economic totem pole forever held in the “Obama Slavery Plantation”!!! Foolish people!!!
Big O fell for the Hope and Change spewed by Evil O and transformed from a folksy congenial women that connected with other women into a shill for evil....payback is a bitch, Oprah.
Politics aside, it is a horrid magazine with nothing of interest for most people. Picked it up once at the doctor’s office, and wondered why anyone at all would subscribe. Same with her “network”—awful, awful stuff. Who watches? I mean besides Oprah and Obama...
Wonder how long it takes before the msm says it’s a race issue?.
As well they should have! Oprah long ago forgot her roots of poordom. She secumbed to gluttony, self satisfaction and the whimsical fancy of too damned much money.
In reality, I equate this woman's action with those of Himmler, Goering, Goebbels, and Eichmann. She, most of all helped usher in the one evil from within that stands a good chance of toppling this country.
There is justice.
She having a hard time letting go of even more of her money as taxes for Obama?
