Oprah & Anime
Posted 5/14/08
I think Oprah should talk about what Oprah wants to. I mean, it's obvious that she has a lot of influence, but no one is going to use good journalism if they don't give a hoot about the subject. It reminds me of the fox news "internet hate machine" segment they did on a certain part of the internet; as magic as Oprah may be, she'd probably do a horrible job giving anime fans decency, because there isn't a whole lot of that to go around these days. Honestly, other cultures are incomprehensible until individuals seek out knowledge for themselves (and discover how little they will ever know.)

I really can't stand Oprah. I think it would be very sad to see shows like hers discuss animes influence on America (Or any other Western Country) to be honest. Her show or Dr. Phil or any of the **"News event shows" are basically just going to talk about how anime is a bad influence on today's society/children. The examples to prove the point will be 'Naruto' (pronounced incorrectly) and how children are burying themselves in the sand, or punching each other on the playground.

Then after her show you are going to get a bunch of crazed parents who are going to put up a stink on how Anime should be banned and how you should "protect your children". Then you will have about 100 other news programs (none which do a full look at different sorts of anime) that will basically regurgitate the same stuff that Oprah/Dr Phil/News Show stated the week before.

At least that is how I would see it play out.

So, moral of the story... Do not believe any of the garbage you hear on any of those sorts of shows because half the time they get information incorrect, do not explore all aspects of the situation, or simply take one sob story and drag it out and make an issue out of a nonissue....

**(I'm not talking about the News, I'm talking about those dodge media circus programs like Australian Today Tonight or A Current Affair *google it*, etc)


Wholly support the aforementioned statements.

Aren't talk shows to discuss stuff that's real...I mean anime is fictional... I mean...imagine her interviewing Naruto or whatever...anime has gain a certain amount of popularity but still , not that much...I bet a majority of our parents here don't watch anime...

Just who here watches Oprah?

You shouldn't talk!
Oprah should do a special on n00bs and invite you in. Bwahaha.


Oh and the Japan-craze thankfully only revolves around a very small amount of people, if I heard random people adding chan etc. to the end of names and stupid stuff like that I would instantly die. -.-" If this ever does those people can join Tammy on the n00b special.

No no, we decided that Oprah was going to hell--> throught my interpretation of the bible. She doesn't have time for that.
