A follow-up article headlined "Oprah-iate of the People," saying:

She's criticized for promoting self-help. Her message to middle-aged women is "You're special. You have some flaws, but it's nothing some luxury lifestyle can't fix."

American society reflects consumption and competition. Oprah's solutions represent it. So does her background. 

An African-American woman succeeded despite long odds. She sells false promises. Viewers believe them. Hope takes a back seat to reality.

In December 2007, the Black Agenda Report headlined "Oprah & Obama: Corporate Marketing for a Corporate Campaign," saying:

During Obama's presidential campaign, they "teamed up for a three-state weekend extravaganza of vapid, substance-devoid entertainment posing as presidential politics."

Doing so is Oprah's specialty. She appeals to America's lowest common denominator. She's a "faux progressive." She has close wealth and power ties. More on that below.

She teamed with Obama. They conned Americans. Uninformed ones were sold false promises. The "Oprah effect" helped. She lied saying:

"Long before it was the popular thing to do, (Obama) stood with clarity and conviction against the war in Iraq."
