    1. Why don’t you explain again how boring it is for somebody who was born into crushing poverty on a farm in Jim Crow Alabama to have earned $2.6 billion by hard work and imagination? You might disagree with her politics or her taste, but you really can’t claim that her story is boring.

      1. It is both boring and utterly ridiculous listening to such a person opine on how racist America is. It is sickeningly absurd.

        If I never hear from Oprah again, it will be too soon.

        There are other people who would be interesting to hear from for a change:

        Dr. Thomas Sowell
        Coleman Hughes
        Shelby Steel
        Glen Loury
        John McWhorter
        Jason Riley
        Ayaan Hirsi Ali
        Walter Williams
        Larry Elder
        Allen West
        Carol Swain

        But I doubt they play well at Cook’s looney lefty cocktail parties.

        1. or…

          Condoleezza Rice
          Alan Keyes
          Candace Owens
          Clarence Thomas
          Armstrong Williams
          Janice Rogers Brown
          Michael Steele
          Star Parker
          Angela McGlowan
          Michelle Bernard
          Deneen Borelli

          But no. Drag out Oprah again.

      2. Don’t tell me what I can’t claim. Her story is boring. She is our first Affirmative Action billionaire, and yet she still plays the race card, just as Obama does, who is our first Affirmative Action President. Both of them are a couple of ingrates. All either one of them needs to say for the rest of their lives is: Dear Guilty White Liberal People, Thank you! We couldn’t have done it without you.

        1. Greyhound was not an AppleTV+ production. They merely licensed it, as it was originally intended for theatrical release, and then C-19 came along and ruined Hollywood’s party.

          And by the way, I’d rather speak German than Ebonics-laced Spanish, which is where this sorry leftwing country is headed, thanks to trash like you.

          I hope I got you all settled up now, smart guy?

  1. More ‘Virtue Signaling’ programming for Apple TV+ from today’s Apple. Is this really what Steve Jobs meant when he said he had finally “cracked it” regarding the last of media, the TV??? I doubt it very much.

    Apple is going to have to PAY ME, if they expect me to watch Apple TV+ filled with political and social Leftist propaganda and reengineering mind meld garbage and it’s not going to be $4.99 a month.
