Oprah Throws Obama Under the Bus

Between making millions and maintaining viewership versus keeping Obama as a friend, Oprah decides to throw the president under the bus.

(Digital Spy)Oprah Winfrey reportedly does not plan to publicly support Barack Obama in the 2012 US presidential election.

Winfrey supported Obama’s campaign in 2008, holding a highly publicised political rally for him during his presidential challenge.

According to a Gallup poll conducted before the rally, Winfrey’s favourable ratings fell from 74 to 66% while her unfavourable ratings jumped from 17 to 26%.

Her TV show ratings also fell following the event.

A source has told PopEater that Winfrey doesn’t want to do anything to alienate viewers now that she has launched her OWN network.
