My Oprah

Oprah finally throws in the towel:

In a stunning switch from dismissive to disgusted, Oprah Winfrey took on one of her chosen authors, James Frey, accusing him on live television of lying about "A Million Little Pieces" and letting down the many fans of his memoir of addiction and recovery.

She was beginning to remind me of the Black Knight from the Holy Grail.
King Arthur: [after Arthur's cut off both of the Black Knight's arms] Look, you stupid Bastard. You've got no arms left.
Black Knight: Yes I have.
King Arthur: *Look*!
Black Knight: It's just a flesh wound.

Course Oprah finally admitted the obvious. She didn't do a Dan Rather
Black Knight; she didn't "it's-just-a-scratch" all the way down to total
limb removal. So kudos Opie, you woke up while you still had a leg
to stand on.
