Oprah at a Crossroads
The New York Times, by CHRISTINE HAUGHNEY

Original Article

Posted By:NYBruin, 11/26/2012 8:42:24 AM

LOS ANGELES — It’s not easy to find a fresh way to photograph Oprah Winfrey. That’s why the editors of O, The Oprah Magazine, recently tried to create a shot that recalled the glory days of Ms. Winfrey’s syndicated talk show. They arranged to photograph her for its April 2013 issue as she stepped onstage to speak to 5,000 attendees at the magazine’s annual conference, a New Age slumber party of sorts for women held at the convention center here last month.

Comments:
Apparently, it´s not easy being Oprah. . .

It´s hard to fathom the stupidity of some people. Five thousand? Good grief.

I admire Oprah´s work ethic. However, I´ve watched a few shows and read her magazine and I have to wonder. She is so restless - always seeking and she´s almost 60. Shouldn´t she have found herself by now?

Oprah severely damaged her brand when she endorsed BO and was so partisan during the 2008 election.

Oprah was the beginning of the end, along with Phil Donahue. They led our culture down the path of "ME", and here we sit today with a world full of "ME FIRST" "GIMME STUFF" society. Thanks, Oprah! FINE job!

Oprah tossed away half her audience and a lot of the trust and authority she built over the years in 2008 when she turned her show into an advertising vehicle for Obama´s campaign and herself into one of the Holy One´s hucksters.

Oprah thought her personal brand was strong enough to withstand her fawning over the Obamas. It wasn´t.

"It´s all about the message" says her highness. And what is the message? That looks don´t matter - except when they do. That focusing on weight is unhealthy but you should diet with Oprah. That spirituality is all important- and enjoy your party gifts! That you should never judge anyone or anything - except things that are bad. That dwelling on the past is wrong but you must stay in touch with your squalid, dark, ugly experiances in order to complain about injustices. Get the picture? Oprah - Thy name means "America is stupid."

The "favorite things" that she presents to the public is the ultimate liberal religious experience. She instantly picks winners and losers in choosing "things" and then reaps a part of their rewards.

What is most interesting about this article is that it at no time does her strong support of Barack Obama bear mention as to a part of her loss of popularity. It certainly played a part for me. I was always discouraged by the fact that her Oprah audience was 90% (or more) filled with adoring WHITE middle class women (and I´ll bet that is also who her subscribers and Oxygen viewers are), but her endorsement of Obama, bringing them along (plus a Black vote that didn´t need prodding), based, from what I could tell, on race alone (after all, she supposedly ditched Rev. Wright´s church herself but felt no qualms about Wright being Obama´s 20 year pastor, the Tony Rezko problems et al. That really cooked her for me, and it will be a long day in H--- before I, her much needed demographic, support her in any way again. I, indeed,. take a certain satisfaction in her problems. She used her charisma to promote Obama, a man she HAD to know was nothing but soaring rhetoric and soaring ego. And we are paying the price.

I´ve never really watched Oprah - just a few times years ago in passing.

However, found Sweetie Pie´s on her OWN and I love it. lol

If you´re into reality shows give it a try. You´ll need to catch up though. (smile)

Former Congressman Jesse Jackson isn´t the only member of the house getting looked at by the feds, according to one published report. The Chicago Sun-Times, citing sources, reported Monday that federal investigators are also taking an independent look at former Chicago Ald. Sandi Jackson. Sandi Jackson acknowledged to NBC Chicago back in December that state officials had questioned her about a $69,000 discrepancy between her campaign finance reports and those of her husband. She blamed the conflict on clerical errors made by transitioning staff members and said amendments to her reports were being made

The U.S Board of Immigration Appeals has agreed to reopen the immigration case of Onyango Obama, delaying the deportation of the 68-year old Kenyan who violated an order to leave the United States in 1992. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a division of the Department of Homeland Security, confirmed to CNSNews.com on Tuesday that Obama, who is the president’s uncle, was granted a rehearing last week and his case is being re-opened.

Election: How Obama's illegal immigrant
half-uncle fears that he will be deported if

Standing behind the liquor store counter the man quietly and anonymously goes about his job serving customers. He had arrived for his shift promptly at 3pm after filling up his gleaming silver Toyota Rav 4 with gas and taking out the trash at his modest two-storey yellow clapboard house in a downtrodden Massachusetts neighbourhood. This a fascinating glimpse into the life of Onyango ‘Omar’ Obama, 68, the half-uncle of Barack Obama - and an illegal immigrant who Mitt Romney has already signalled should be deported if he wins his bid for the Presidency today.

A CIA document outlining a Mafia-connected plan to assassinate Cuban leader Fidel Castro for $150,000 is among thousands of Robert F. Kennedy documents made public Thursday, just days before the 50th anniversary of the Cuban missile crisis. In the 1964 plan, the mob and "patriotic Cuban exiles" eventually settled on a payment of $100,000 for assassinating Castro, $20,000 for his brother Raúl and $20,000 for revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara, plus $2,500 for expenses.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
