CBS Boosts Oprah's 'Remarkable' Pro-Gun Control Speech at Harvard
Newbusters ^ | 5/31/2013 | Matthew Balan

Friday's CBS This Morning touted Oprah Winfrey's recent Harvard commencement speech, airing over a minute of half of footage from the former daytime TV host's address. The morning newscast spotlighted how Winfrey took the opportunity to promote two liberal pet causes: gun control and "a clear path to citizenship" for illegal immigrants.

The show's three anchors all sang the billionaire's praises. Charlie Rose gushed over Winfrey's "remarkable speech". Norah O'Donnell trumpeted the TV star's "important message". Gayle King, who is Oprah's longtime friend, marveled over the address: "She did a great job yesterday." The three hosts didn't once mention King's close connection to Winfrey [audio clips available here; video below the jump].

Yeah, that was a real good idear. Let this useless asshat who lead so many no/low info voters down the primrose path to the emaculation of rocky obie-san kanobee "lecture" the Hahvahd grads. Sadly they probably sucked it right up.

I'm sure Oprah, like Barbra Streisand and so many other celebrity illiterates before her, graced the precious Harvard children with the best speech money can buy.

Okra: another Chicago gun guru-expert. What was it? Six killed, 22 wounded over last weekend in Chicagoland?

How about some gang control, Opie, since your police-state doesn’t seem to be working.

Shooting figures from Obammy’s home turf are resembling ‘Starship Trooper’ casualty figures from the bug planet.

I assume Oprah hires bodyguards; are they armed? Inquiring minds want to know.

The guy she pimped for, Obama, is a gun runner.

So she, Oprah, is in fact full of shit.

Meanwhile, she probably lives behind gates 24/7, with armed security and has waaaaaaay more than enough cash stacked up to keep her in cake and ice cream the rest of her life.

So she couldn’t care less what happens to the rest of the country.

Thanks rktman.
gun control and "a clear path to citizenship" for illegal immigrants
She's just another racist supporter of the racist Obama, and partisan media demagogue trying to change the conversation away from the crimes and scandals of Zero and his administration.
