Oprah at Harvard
by Stephen Lendman
Harvard's invitation is shameful.
Harvard's Crimson announced it. Oprah will deliver Harvard's 362nd Commencement address.
President Drew Faust called her "journey from her grandmother's Mississippi farm to becoming one of the world's most admired women one of the great American success stories."
She's best known for her nationally syndicated talk show: The Oprah Winfrey Show. In 2011, it ended its 25-year run.
It was broadcast in 145 countries. Annually it reached 40 million US viewers. It featured guests ranging from celebrities to presidents. It won her fame and fortune.
She owns Harpo Productions. It's Oprah spelled backwards. She has her own cable channel: Oprah Winfrey Network. It's seen in 83 million households.
