It's On My Radar

Maybe my skeptic-meter is more finely tuned, but I think the underlying reason I dislike Oprah and her success is the way she pimps for companies, people, and movements as she masquerades as a "compassionate, common sense thinker." She may be the greatest PR vehicle ever invented. But what I dislike even more than Oprah, are the legions of unthinking people who hang on her every word. She's no different than a religious huckster, promising salvation if you only follow and believe everything she puts out there. I think she knows how to tap into the provincial and the over-sheltered who never learned to work things through for themselves. She's a master manipulator.
