Oprah Won’t Win A Fox News Oscar

Oprah Winfrey is in the thick of a presumed road to an Oscar nomination, for her impressive performance in “The Butler.” But she can’t count on votes from anyone at Fox News. Miss Oprah made headlines last week when she told the BBC that racial progress will move forward when older generations of racists “die,” and that President Obama has faced racism during his time in office. Most of the world moved on relatively quickly, but Oprah’s comments have been re-litigated for days on Fox and right-wing radio. As Seth and Amy would say, “Really?” I don’t think Oprah is sweating it: tonight, she and Bill Clinton are among those receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Obama. (So is Loretta Lynn: hooray!) Because, you know, she and Bubba have lived their lives devoid of recognition.
