She’s Oprah..of course

Oprah has had her own YouTube channel for 6 whole days now (here is the story). She introduced her channel by hosting a television show with all the YouTube “stars”. Her favorite was Tyson the skateboarding dog: “If we all had the passion of that dog everyone would be successful”. Really Oprah? A passionate dog? Either way I find Oprah-juggernaut terrifying. YouTube has clearly cemented itself as commercial venture, as Oprah is using YouTube celebrity cache to hawk her show, the veneer of equality is clearly gone. Oprah is the new YouTube star.
