The Cult of Oprah. Are you a member? I can happily say that I am not and while I don’t have anything against Oprah, per se, I also don’t understand the Mesmer-like effect that she has on the daytime TV audience. What is it about this woman that so strongly compels people to follow “The Secret” or to read “The Secret Life of Bees”?
In a recent issue of Newsweek, Oprah was called out for pushing unproven and unsound medical advice to her viewers. Whether these things are proven or not does not matter to me, she totally has a right to present the things that she likes to her audience. I am far more interested in the public exercising a healthy skepticism before plunging over the cliff of one of her recommendations.
