Oprah Winfrey Endorses John Fetterman over Dr. Oz, Whose TV Career She Helped Launch Into Stardom

As midterm election day in America is now five days away, Oprah Winfrey, put her full support for the hotly contested Pennsylvania Senate race behind John Fetterman, and not Dr. Mehmet Oz, who owes his entire career as a television personality and celebrity to Winfrey.

Oz began his TV career as a health expert on The Oprah Winfrey Show in the early 2000s for over 5 years, which eventually led to Oprah producing Oz’s own daytime talk show.

Later, The Dr. Oz Show bowed in 2009 and ran for 13 seasons before he called it quits to move from New Jersey to Pennsylvania to run for the Senate. Both Winfrey and Oz were multi-Daytime Emmy-winners during their show runs.

During a virtual town hall on Thursday night, Winfrey endorsed Oz’s Senate opponent: “I said it was up to the citizens of Pennsylvania and of course, but I will tell you all this, if I lived in Pennsylvania, I would have already cast my vote for John Fetterman for many reasons.” Winfrey also went on to endorse other Democratic candidates in Governor and Senate races around the country.

Brittany Yanick, a spokesperson for Dr. Oz said of Oprah’s endorsement of Fetterman: “Doctor Oz loves Oprah and respects the fact that they have different politics. He believes we need more balance and less extremism in Washington.”

Fetterman said in a statement that it was, “An honor and privilege to have Oprah’s support in this race. She is a leader on so many issues — fighting for our democracy, passing common-sense gun reform, and ensuring racial justice. I’m grateful for Oprah’s support and trust on the issues that matter to people across the country and Pennsylvania as we close out this campaign.”

So, what do you think of Oprah endorsing Fetterman instead of Oz for the Pennsylvania Senate seat, when she launched his daytime and TV career? Share your thoughts below.

Just wish it didn’t take her so long. I remember seeing Oz’s first day on the Oprah show years ago. The subject was all about poop. It was funny, but he made a sensitive subject informative. What a disappointment he turned into.

I remember that crazy show, but my friends and I dwelled on the subject for days, ” does it sink or float?” was so important then.

Violet…Happy Time Change…You have a great memory. If any good came from that for me it got me into probiotics gut health. You even put us back to MF page about Oz with your reply to Jaybird. Wish his name wasn’t Oz. Takes away from one of my favorite movies. And wizard he ain’t. Well maybe closer to the character than I thought behind his door. :)))

Oprah is nothing but a fraud! She is only supporting Fetterman because she has a grudge against Dr. Oz. He made her so much money and because he chose to do something else in his life, service his country and not be a money grubber like Winfrey, she has a problem with him! Oprah made millions at Sirius XM and never lived up to her contract and provided the content she “Promised!” John Fetterman is a nobody. She doesn’t know a damn thing about this guy. He isn’t Oz and he is a democrat, that’s why she is backing him!… Read more »

The “true patriot” Oz is still a Turkish citizen. Who also lives in New Jersey. Neither of which qualifies him to be a Senator from Pennsylvania. Oz might have been a great surgeon at one point in his life (much like former brain surgeon Ben Carson) but he threw all that away to cash in on TV stardom, sleazy supplement scams, and eventually right wing politics, including an association with a certain bloated Orange turd. Since Oprah helped create Oz, the “celebrity”, it’s only right that she contributes to his downfall, even though it’s a little late. As for John… Read more »

Satan, as usual you are inspired! I used to cackle at that shyster Oz touting the next junk product that will “forever change your life….right after these commercials.” Wow, must be really important! Heck, he was embarrassing on “THE $100,000 PYRAMID”; I can only imagine the debacle he’d be in Congress.

Satan, Oz isn’t perfect. You do make some valid points. I will admit, like in some of the presidential elections in the past, I am going with the lessor of two evils here and to me, its Oz.

By all accounts, he is a great surgeon and not such a great pitchman. I get it.

I have been waiting to see if she’d weigh in and for which candidate. So happy she landed on the right side of history with her endorsement! And at that, I’ll stop before I make any further political non-soap comments. :0)

Oprah agrees with Fetterman’s policies. Her endorsement is purely an ideological one.

Dr. Oz is a scumbag and it’s about time Oprah endorsed Fetterman!

As the ungodly flaunt their ways of decedent evils against God. They stand proudly boasting their powers of wealth and social standing. But the true decisions will be made by the will of God. Will He spare our Nation from the desasterous hands of Sodomite worship and the blood sacrifice of innocent babies. Or is his judgement passed for Americas ultimate destruction.

Most unholy congratulations to Senator-elect John Fetterman for his win last night!

Did Oprah help him any with her late endorsement? Maybe… maybe not. Now… as strange as this is going to sound, coming from the Devil…. let’s hope the Reverend Senator Warnock can also pull out a win. Still too close to call when I shut off HellCable News for the night.

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
