* TelevisionTieInMagazines: The TV work spawned the ''O Magazine'', Oprah's vehicle for proclaiming the message that a strong woman who believes in herself can do anything she sets her mind to. This has a healthy international circulation; British readers are appreciative of the message concerning strong empowered women who believe in themselves. But [[ValuesDisssonance/Other they point to the paradox that there is heavy advertising for prescription drugs of a sort which would positively not be allowed anywhere outside the USA]]. It has been noted that Oprah's message of empowerment clearly involves a chemical component, to use as a fall-back for when self-reliance and self-belief fail. If in doubt ask your doctor.

* TheUnfairSex: In one episode, Oprah brought on a sexuality expert to discuss infidelity. When the expert suggested that women cheat in relationships just as often as men, she received disbelieving catcalls from the normally well-behaved audience. She shot back by asking them who they think the cheating men are sleeping with; is there just [[ReallyGetsAround one single woman]] they all share?

** The name being reminiscent of a certain [[Creator/MarxBrothers Marx brother]] was probably an accident.

However, there's been some controversy where Oprah is concerned. When Mad Cow Disease fears were at their peak in the '90s, she said that the fears stopped her from eating meat, which caused the beef industry to sue her for defamation. As a result, her show moved to Texas for a month so she could continue filming during the trial. Another such incident was the Book Club endorsement of books that were ''extremely'' dubiou, like James Frey's supposedly-autobiographical ''A Million Little Pieces'': when it turned out that [[BasedOnAGreatBigLie Frey had made it all up]], she had him on and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome tore]] [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech him]] [[JustForPun to pieces]].

* SuperGullible: Oprah was accused of this in regards to the Book Club, where she and her staff apparently did ''no'' research about the authors or the themes in the books. As a result, she sometimes recommended "non-fiction" books that were '''blatantly''' [[BasedOnAGreatBigLie based on lies]] - James Frey's "A little..." NOT being the only case.
-->'''Swallowing The Camel Webmaster''', about this situation: "Nearly every case of literary fraud I’ve covered on this blog (...) has one thing in common with every other case: Oprah Winfrey. I don’t have anything against Oprah, but I gotta say that woman is '''gullible'''. With a capital G. After being burned so many times, you’d think she might consider using just a tiny fraction of her riches to hire a part-time fact-checker who can screen the memoirs and other “true stories” she promotes on the air. If she doesn’t do that soon, I’ll have to assume that she doesn’t mind subjecting millions of her viewers to hoaxes and cons."
