One day, a woman called herself “Want the Truth in Westport” wrote to a columnist with a question that she had to have the answered. “Please find out for sure,” she begged the columnist, “whether or not Oprah Winfrey has had a facelift.” The columnist refused to answer the question for Ms. Winfrey’s privacy. I’m disturbed by this incident. I think it’s really awful to be a celebrity because he or she is always in the public eyes. Because they are celebrities, they have too little privacy, too m

Oprah Winfrey Oprah Winfrey is first of all known and recognized as the host of the most watched daytime show on television, The Oprah Winfrey Show. But her contributions can be felt beyond the world of television, as she is also a talented actress, owner of a movie production company, magazine founder and editorial director, and committed philanthropist. The fact that Oprah Winfrey is also black and a woman makes her rags to riches story an even more remarkable version of the ‘American Dream’.

Many people believe that African Americans receive a great amount of discrimination from Cauca

Some critics have predicted that in a few years, images -- whether still or moving -- will not be

In the world of entertainment, TV talk shows have undoubtedly flooded every inch of space on daytime television. Many of us have seen and heard the often recycled topics found on such veteran shows as Geraldo and Sally Jessy Raphael. And anyone who watches talk shows on a regular basis knows that each one varies in style and format. One might enjoy watching the sometimes trashy subject matter found on Jenny Jones, while someone else might prefer the more serious and light hearted feel of the Ma

There is a frightening new disease in the world that has gotten a lot
There is a frightening new disease in the world that has gotten a lot of somewhat unnecessary attention in America. The disease is bovine spongiform encephalopathy, better known as mad cow disease. It is found in many countries around the world, but the U. S. is not one of them. Mad cow disease affects the nervous system and eventually kills whatever is infected. But treatment is available for humans, although it will still affect the mind. And studies are being made to see if the disease is li

Talk Shows
Talk Shows With talk shows ruling day-time television, people are left with little choice but to watch this humiliating form of entertainment. Turn the television on in the afternoon and you will find a large variety of talk shows to choose from. Maybe we have become a nation addicted to hearing our neighbors' seamy personal problems(You 40). Personally, I feel it is both the lack of choice and the attraction to other peoples problems. Many of the topics on talk shows are degrading to our soc

Freedom of speech is granted to United States citizens under the first
Freedom of speech is granted to United States citizens under the first amendment of the Constitution. Many people, however, seem to feel that this right is often exercised too freely on television. Whether this is true or not is a large controversy. Although most people believe in speaking their minds on television, it is also understood by most people that freedom of speech can be carried too far, which is kind of ironic because the constitution says that US Citizens can say whatever they’d li

The Meaning of Life
The Meaning of Life What is the meaning of life? Everybody has his/her own opinion on what this meaning is. Michael Jordan, Oprah Winfrey, and Michael Jackson for example all have their own views. This is the meaning of life according to Michael Jackson. “Life blooms into flowers, love songs, music, and explodes into stars, nebulae, and galaxies. We exist in living, pulsating, dancing universe, and we are a privileged species because the creative force of all life is most alive in our souls.” I
