But others will read this and, because it's Oprah, will accept it as Gospel, little knowing or caring it is a gross exaggeration as is much of American "history" currently.
The "Big Lie" strategy has been adopted by the left on a number of topics, it seems.
“My god! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy? I confess I had no idea of it myself.” Jefferson writing to Madison on America in 1785 while in Paris.

Five years ago, this may have been true. However, realize that Oprah has faded well into obscurity because of her ill-advised move to her own cable network two years ago. Now, the names she used to lift to prominence-- the Phil McGraws, the Tyler Perrys, and so on-- are the ones Oprah needs to lean on to prop up her channel. The only significant ratings she's had since the move to OWN were for her big-name interviews with Whitney Houston's family and Lance Armstrong, the latter buoyed by all the steroids hype.

I do see she's picked up a couple stalwart soap operas-- All My Children and One Life to Live-- for the daytime. It's a smart move for her, as it gives OWN the audience that used to watch her show.
