16. I'd like to see her cover other issues the way she did Katrina too
But hey, why doesn't The Man Show talk about the war? :shrug:

Oprah was never meant to be a hard news show, despite her frequent forays into topical issues. It is the so-called REAL news media that have fallen down on the job, let us not forget. Maybe Oprah feels that if she did cover the war and the corruption in the Bush admin it would be counterproductive, that her coverage would be mocked as "fluff" and that would damage the credibility of the anti-Neo Con cause.
