A woman I hope to grow up to be like some day, and just for the sheer fact that she has a gripe against Oprah too, Ms. Schlussel is a woman after my own heart (wait, that didn't sound right), an excerpt from her blog,
On Monday, she plans a show with hip pop stars. Then on Tuesday, she will do her live "Oprah on the scene of Katrina" show, telling us what happened there--as if we didn't already know. We already know what happened there, courtesy of a gazillion REAL news organizations, who've been there while Oprah was AWOL. We do not need her reports now. The people there needed her help raising money, etc., last week. That Oprah will now be in New Orleans figuratively (and perhaps literally) standing on top of the dead bodies in the watery crypt to say, "Hey, look at me, Oprah, I'm here, too," is sickening. Her self-insertion into everything, even when it is unwarranted, as here, is annoying--and, in this deadly crisis, it is appalling.
Full Blog She has comments on so go on over there and bother her.
Oh yeah, Ms. Schlussel doesn't like Dr. Phil either. YES! Finally, I am not alone in this.
Regarding experiment; just as I thought.
