Oprah and out

Am I the only one in the world who has never watched a single episode of Oprah?

In spite of that omission there’s a process not unlike osmosis by which knowledge of celebrities seeps into your brain and I’ve unconsciously picked up quite a bit about her. That includes the knowledge that today she signed off from her last show.

Have I missed anything of note?

    Goodness me Ele, you and your readers are seriously out of touch with the world – not having heard of Oprah Winfrey!
    I don’t suppose they’ve heard of John Stewart either (or if they have, can’t bring themselves to say his name).

  13. Oprah started out after the Phil Donahue talk show, other talk shows sprang up, they are all gone. Her staying power was that she turned away from trashy shows and tried to help people, Dr. Oz, Dr. Phil, Suze Orman, book clubs, the Angel Network, a school to educate girls in a country where they had no future. You may not agree with her politics or religious views but this woman was a force in this country. She could have taken her money and had a mansion in all corners of the globe but the woman gave back, and for this she has been honored.
