I’m inclined to think that the Oprah Winfrey show is basically just a big fancy video weblog. Not only does she get to take on whatever topics she likes, but she can use her soapbox to shame people who she feels mistreat her. The only difference between Oprah and the rest of us (other than a few hundred million dollars) is that she doesn’t have to rely on bunches of people to lend her their indignation to get the word out.
