Oprah Winfrey’s Stuck Moment as a Tunnel Visionary

| October 18, 2011

Her stuck moment: Even though Winfrey revolutionized the tabloid talk show with what “Time” magazine dubbed “rapport talk,” “The Oprah Winfrey Show” was one among dozens of shock TV shows.   

She strays from the usual: In the 1990s, Winfrey flipped the coin on her show’s focus from the negatives of bad behavior to the positives of self-help.

Unstuck result: Winfrey’s show outlasted all her competitors, and her supportive spin inspired millions.
