Oprah Winfrey OWNs This Fail

Her OWN Network, collapsing under its OWN weight (yikes, sorry) - via I Hate The Media:

The OWN channel, which launched two months ago, is being watched by only 135,000 people at any one time.
The ratings are 10 per cent lower than for the cable channel it replaced which was called Discovery Health.

And only 45,000 of those watching are women aged 25 to 54, the audience the channel is being aimed at.

No surprise here - Oprah, defying gravity, jumped the shark the day she endorsed Barack Obama,
alienating both her her conservative viewers and her feminist ones, who felt betrayed by her refusal to support Hillary Clinton, instead of simply staying out of it. Betting on race may seem like a sure thing, but it's a race run to the bottom...

And not only did Oprah lose the bulk of her fan base, she didn't even get the chance to cozy up to, and lick, the
balls of power:

A distraught Oprah Winfrey is telling pals her "thank you" for helping Barack Obama win the presidency has been a knife in the back.

A jealous first lady has frozen the talk queen out of the White House inner circle, say insiders. "Oprah is devastated," revealed a friend.

Oprah supported Barack Obama, and seems to have lost everything. Which, of course, puts her in the company of some 69 million other schmucks...
