TALKLEFT: “It is disingenuous to now pretend Oprah is not a big story this campaign season. Oprah has a perfect right to act in a partisan way, but please stop with the whining when that is pointed out. Oprah injected herself into the political campaign. And now she has to take her lumps for it, as would any other media figure who did what Oprah has done.” Yes, Oprah has a right to use her show as a political platform, and her viewers have a right to applaud her, or to be unhappy and take their eyeballs elsewhere. That’s how things are supposed to work.
