Fraud on Television

Am I the only one who notices how manipulative Oprah Winfrey is?
Whenever her guest says something profound, etc., she repeats it -- twice -- and then she, not the originator of the comment, receives the applause. Oprah once told a woman who wanted to follow in her footsteps, "You have to work really hard." Yes, I'm sure it would be a lot of work for a human being to become that manipulative. If you're not a sociopath, manipulating the world should NOT be easy for you. In fact, it SHOULD be impossible. But I imagine, if you work at it hard enough and long enough, you could probably sell your soul.

Something else that really irritates me, is that on the evening news, the anchors have a tendency to refer to the FLDS as "a sect of Mormonism." What these people are saying is ludicrous. The first thing there is to note about the REAL Mormon Chuch, is that they have no sects. They are of one faith. The FLDS broke off of and away from the Mormons a great many years ago, except back then, they called themselves the RLDS. The point I'm trying to make is that these wiseguys are not to be confused with the Mormons. They're two completely different religions. KARE 11, WCCO4News, and the like need to: GET OVER IT, and stop falsifying their news.
