Newsweek's cover story this week covers the claim that Oprah Winfrey is too free wielding with her "health" advice and she abuses her influence by offering ineffective and dangerous cures on her show.
The article sites several guests who have offered questionable advice, including Suzanne Somers, Jenny McCarthy, and Physician/author Christiane Northrup.
Well, Oprah has seen your article and she has something to say back: Shove it!
No, sorry, we said that. This was her reply:
"For 23 years, my show has presented thousands of topics that reflect the human experience, including doctors' medical advice and personal health stories that have prompted conversations between our audience members and their health care providers. I trust the viewers, and I know that they are smart and discerning enough to seek out medical opinions to determine what may be best for them."
In other words, idiots shouldn't watch her show. Only smart, intellectual housewives.
And we think 23 years of broadcasting speaks for itself. She can't be doing that much harm.
