Oprah, stop it

Most people know that I am not much of an Oprah supporter, which definitely puts me in the minority living in Chicago. She does good things for people, but my main issue with her is that she is constantly overstepping her bounds and trying to be an expert in areas that she has no experience or expertise.

I have severely mixed feelings about her book club, which she is continuing after a one year hiatus, post James Frey controversy. On one hand, if it gets more people in this country to read, I am pro her book club. But honestly, what credentials does Oprah have to recommend books to the public?
