What If Oprah Becomes the First Presidential Candidate?
Oprah’s won’t run for President, or even for something she considers to be in her best interest. But, she’s not the only person who has been voted to be America’s favorite on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” She is one of many, but the extent of the information that’s aired on the popular talk show is usually a little over the top. Once upon a time, Oprah was merely a small-time television star with a magnetically large following.
But, thanks to her growing legion of loyal fans and media-savvy compatriots, Oprah is now making moves to cement her place as America’s most popular guest. Instead of just becoming a spokesperson for a certain product or medical method, Oprah has been putting her money where her mouth is.
In order to keep herself afloat, Olivia Rogers has released a book called, “Always On.” The book is basically an extensive examination of Oprah’s life, career, and personal life. She reveals some personal truths about herself and her upbringing that few other people are willing to speak about publicly.
This is not to say that Pell Grant had anything to do with it, because her family was, at the very least, supportive, but it certainly sheds light on how Oprah became the huge, huge figure that she is today. Naturally, with Oprah’s popularity is increasing, people like Oliver Stone, David Letterman, and Russell Simmons are looking for ways to capitalize on this.
They are hiring private investigators, hiring astronauts, and giving scholarships to rocket scientists who are interested in space. Maybe a rocket scientist can get a paid internship at NASA in exchange for doing research.
So, back to the subject of Oprah and all the attention she’s getting – is this the new way for media to market themselves? Or is Oprah’s massive following the result of being well-known in the general public? Are celebrities being successful in their ventures because they are in the public eye, or because they have done what the public has asked them to do?
We’ll probably never know for sure, but those who follow Oprah can rest assured that Olivia Rogers and Oprah are doing whatever it takes to keep Oprah’s head high. A personal history is hardly the same as a biography, but she’s made it clear that she’ll give all the interviews she can possibly get. Now, it’s time for the public to start asking themselves the same questions that got Oprah so famous.
