James Frey was…

… only the beginning for Oprah. Misleading millions of people with patent bullshit is what she does for a living.

[Oprah] Winfrey allowed a physician called Christiane Northrup to claim – in contradiction to almost all scientific evidence – that “in many women, thyroid dysfunction develops because of an energy blockage in the throat region [after] a lifetime of ‘swallowing’ words one is aching to say”.

    There are many words that I have been aching to say to my students over a decade of teaching calculus, but I swallowed (almost) all of them. I’ll go get my thyroid checked.

    Oh my mother has passed on all kinds of tested medical wisdom like that to me–thinking too hard causes headaches, eating standing upright causes the food go to your heels, swallowing watermelon seeds causes them to to sprout in your stomach (this also explains the appearance of pregnancy–real babies come from storks). Maybe Oprah should invite me on the show to warn all the women in America who think they’re pregnant that they’re actually incubating watermelons?

    Oprah Winfrey is Narcissus incarnate, only not as smart.
