Oprah does indeed strike fear in me. The other day I heard Thomas Frank attacking the right wing by ridiculing their defense of the free market given the fact that so much gutter trash comes over our various entertainment and advertising media. Although he's clearly a leftist, he's got a point: Lennin said we'd sell communists the rope to hang ourselves. Aren't we telegraphing our own destruction in the so-called free press? I'm not advocating censorship, just criticism -- like yours. Keep it up! Oprah has a lot of positive attitudes to offer, but when she's wrong, she's really wrong. And a lot of gals don't know how to spot her mistaken thinking.
That's why she changed the format of her show where she doesn't ask opinions of the audience. She's only interested in her own opinions. And now she had the power to make us listen.
Be very afraid.
