Oprah Winfrey's New Cable Network: Insignificant And Corrupt?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"After various websites noted a curious surge in votes Tuesday for a contestant in Oprah Winfrey`s "Your OWN Show" contest, OWN, the television network Winfrey will launch in January, confirms to EW it is investigating. The online contest is really a search for contestants for an OWN reality series in which competitors will then vie for their own show on the network."

Oprah Winfrey`s new cable network won`t launch until January 2011, but it`s already mired in corruption. Oprah`s cable network was destined to have a nich audience anyway, but will this brewing scandal destroy it?

Zach Anner, a wheelchair-bound Texan with cerebral palsy, had an overwhelming lead, but suddenly out of nowhere another contestant Dr. Phyllis took the top spot.

You don`t have to be a computer geek to discern that there`s something rotten in Denmark. Did Oprah Winfrey rig the results so that a woman, instead of a handicapped man, would win the contest?

Oprah Winfrey`s own network will investigate to see if there was any chicanery involved. Please! An outside organization should investigate, nobody will trust the findings of Oprah`s sleuths.

It could be that this whole scandal was manufactured by Oprah Winfrey as a means of publicizing her new cable network. But it won`t work, Oprah will fail in her new endeavor. Oprah Winfrey is played out!
