Oprah Refuses to Have Sarah Palin on Her Show

I don’t like Oprah. I don’t like most celebrities, but lately, I especially don’t like Oprah. Today on the Drudge Report, they had a little blurb about Oprah refusing to have Sarah Palin on her show. Apparently, she doesn’t want to turn her show into a political showcase. “At the beginning of this Presidential campaign when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates.” I can understand that, I don’t think celebrities should use their influence to support celebrities. I don’t think it’s their place, and beside that, they are more out of touch with the common American than most politicians are; so who really wants to hear their views?

Until this year, Oprah seemed to do a good job of staying out of politics, and limiting the display of her liberalism. That is, until she started campaigning for Barak Obama, and throwing her support behind him. Also, it seems odd that she doesn’t want her show as a platform for the candidates, yet…. She had Barack on her show…. Oh hypocricy, you gotta love it.

I bet she will alienate some women fans of hers. They will be even more open to checking out Palin. Oprah doesn't want Palin on her show because she is afraid Palin might sway some of her viewers away from Obama. Oprah is afraid of hurting Obama's chances, she knows he has a tough fight with Palin on the ticket.

Too be fair though, she had Obama on before he was running, when his books came out. To have Palin on now that she's running would mean Oprah would really have to have Obama on now too. But then she probably would be accused of breaking some campaign finance laws or something.

All real freedom starts with freedom of speech. Without freedom of speech, there can be no real freedom.

You have some nice points there. There is a reason her viewers are down from 9 million in 2005 to 7.3 in 2008. Her O magazine is also down %10 in distribution. She has exposed her liberalism, and it's hurting her.
