Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Oprah

The most overrated celebrity in modern times. She interviews people for a living, but people act as though she has a PhD in psychology, dieting, parenting and now politics. She's a liberal version of Donald Trump, overrated and unqualified. She has a college degree in Communications & Entertainment. How does that qualify her to be anything but a talk show host? Her "favorite things" that appear in the holiday issue of her magazine promotes materialism to the extreme. Who can afford to pay $120 for a box of 23-karat gold-leafed chocolates? She gives platforms to anti-vaxxers like Jenny McCarthy and grifters like Dr. Phil. She promoted a scam book called "The Secret." Kim Tinkham appeared on Oprah's show after she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and decided to not have chemo in favor of "positive thinking" as promoted in "The Secret." Sadly, Kim lost her battle to cancer. Oprah is a scam artist and a fraud.
