When I was reading this article, there was something that was mentioned a couple times that really stood out to me. There were at least two examples of how "Oprah" contradicted her messages. For example, she says, "You're responsible for their own life. People watch our show and realize they're not alone." I thought this was very interesting of Cloud to point out. I think we get that a lot these days, like a promotion from a gym may say it's up to you to live a healthy lifestyle, but join our gym to do that. I can see this as being a tool that the media uses to, like we talked about last week, send a message to us as consumers.
