Obrazovanje o Opri


Meni ne nešto posebno interesantna i inspirativna, ali u svakom slučaju ekstremno uspešna TV voditeljka i poslovna žena Opra Vinfri (Oprah Winfrey) najavila je, uz po neku suzu, da će od jeseni 2011. završiti emitovanje svog popularnog programa ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show'.


To će se poklopiti i sa pokretanjem njenog kablovskog TV kanala, a kakva će njena uloga biti tamo, i šta je u finansijskom i profesionalnom pogledu očekuje od ove promene, to još uvek ne zna ni NYT.

Meni je u celoj stvari interesantna priča o Janice Peck sa univerziteta u Koloradu, koja je većinu svoje akademske karijere posvetila upravo izučavanju Opre.

Kako to izgleda u praksi?

An associate professor in the University of Colorado’s school for journalism and mass communication, she has spent the last two decades methodically analyzing Winfrey’s career moves, placing the billionaire media mogul in a political and economic context, and reading a history of the women’s movement in the dips and swells of Oprah’s ratings.
“I have watched tons of episodes of her shows,” she says. “I have ordered and bought transcripts. I have probably read transcripts, beginning in 1986, of around 250 episodes, in addition to watching them. I have read books. I have written an analysis of one of the books in the book club. I have pored over the magazine. I know that Web site inside and out.” In short: “I study her.”

I, šta sad?

Niko nije nezamenljiv, kao što znamo.

“I do have other interests, you know.”

Koga tema celebrity journalism malo više interesuje, imam ovaj post u arhivi.
