Oprah Winfrey joins ’60 Minutes’ as special contributor

That is, until she can’t get her way about something and she starts calling them ‘rayciss!”

Breitbart; Jan. 31 (UPI) — Oprah Winfrey will be joining long-running CBS newsmagazine 60 Minutes this fall as a special contributor.

“I’ve been a big admirer of 60 Minutes since my days as a young reporter,” the television entrepreneur said in a statement Tuesday.

“I’m so excited and proud to join forces with this historic news program, which for me represents the bastion of journalistic storytelling. At a time when people are so divided, my intention is to bring relevant insight and perspective, to look at what separates us, and help facilitate real conversations between people from different backgrounds,” she continued.

“She has achieved excellence in everything she has touched. Her body of work is extraordinary, including thousands of interviews with people from all walks of life,” added 60 Minutes executive producer Jeff Fager. MORE

  1. Haven’t watched in over 30 years. Never have accepted watching an organization that bills manipulated editorials as, “News.” Much like Fox’s yellow journalism expert, o’really.

  2. I haven’t watched 60 Minutes since the early 80s.
    I haven’t watched the Alphabet evening “news” since 1998 when I discovered Drudge, but I will admit to enjoying CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Kuralt way back when.

  3. So. This really makes no difference to me. I haven’t watched “60 Minutes” in, I can’t recall how long. Adding “Harpo” won’t change my opinion of the program.

  4. “my intention is to bring relevant insight and perspective, to look at what separates us”

    why not just air the guy who tells you “what separates us”, why pay your fat ass for that info second hand.

    what separates us is your fat ass. I can’t get past it.

  5. Going down. I can hear the claws scraping as media dies and tries anything to slow down their demise.

    Might as well have hung an anchor on “60 Minutes”. Oprah lost her commonality credibility long ago and is just another over paid elitist hack.
