Steve Doocy Advances Rumor Re Oprah Winfrey Not Backing Obama

Reported by Priscilla - April 9, 2011 -

Yesterday, during a discussion with Fox fave, the hirsute leader of the right wing Media Research Center, Brent Bozell (who is worried about possible nudity, on a possible NBC show about the Playboy Club) discussed the issues surrounding what looked to be a looming government shutdown. At one point, MENSA member Doocy (just kidding) said that prior to his election, Barack Obama was supported by Oprah Winfrey. At the conclusion of a brief video clip, showing Winfrey saying why she was voting for Obama, Doocy said "that was then and this is now and it seems that Oprah Winfrey is not backing him this time." Bozell said that "things have changed' and surmised that she is concerned about her ratings. Well, boys and girls, it seems that both Doocy and Bozell were summarizing the contents of an article, sourced by Fox Nation, which claims that "it has been alleged" that Oprah Winfrey does not plan to "publicly" support Obama. "Digital Spy" reports that "a source told PopEater that Winfrey doesn't want to do anything to alienate viewers now that she has launched her OWN network." ("Pop Eater" is an entertainment website). The article continues with this: "However, Winfrey's rep has strongly denied the claims, and insisted that the talkshow host is as committed to Obama's campaign as ever.Winfrey's spokesperson Lisa Halliday said: "Oprah's support of President Obama has been and remains unwavering since she initially endorsed his candidacy in 2007. Any reports that suggest otherwise are untrue." I guess Doocy didn't read the whole article!
