Jaehee Won WRT 105 Kohler October 20, 2009 Generosity, kindness, and inspiration are just a few words that come to mind when one thinks of Oprah Winfrey. As a role model to all people of any race, gender, or group, she has captured the hearts of millions of viewers. With her influence in mind, many outsiders wonder about her effect on viewers in regards to weight. Orpah has set herself up as an authority on the subject of weight loss yet has failed to maintain a weight . How can Oprah be trusted with all her “weight loss” statements?
Plastic Surgery; Women in Today’s Media Plastic Surgery has increasingly become more acceptable, more attainable, and the fastest growing trend in young women in today’s society. Plastic surgery is becoming more and more popular among younger women because of what they see as acceptable in our society. Last year, twenty three year old, reality television star, Heidi Montag went under the knife for a second time, the first being four years ago, to undergo ten major procedures in one day. Heidi sacrificed her safety and possibly her life just to achieve what she has said as an “improved version of herself,” in her post surgery interview on Good Morning America; but what others have said is too drastic, too dangerous, and at too young of an age. I contend that socialization theory, social cognitive theory, cognitive dissonance theory, and the agenda setting theory have all assisted the media in promoting and encouraging these drastic and life threatening surgeries as only a small sacrifice in achieving the ultimate ideal of beauty.

Throughout the years, Oprah Winfrey has become a household name. What with her talk show (which is watched by millions everyday internationally), magazine, multiple charities, production company, and other various programs, Oprah has most definitely made her mark on society. In fact, Oprah Winfrey is the most influential African American woman on American culture. This opinion is shared by many people and organizations. She has made the top of a variety of lists which name her as one of the world's most influential and powerful people.
For example, when Oprah began her book club in 1996 whereby she selected a book for discussion on her show and encouraged her audience to read the book, she single-handedly bolstered the publishing industry and book sales (Hussain, 2007). We’re talking about the type of spike in sales that have never before been seen in history. She has been called the most influential person in the world. According to Wong (2006), you won’t see Oprah doing traditional endorsements such as getting paid to have her name associated with any certain brand of clothing or shoes, but rather Winfrey aims to share what she is passionate about with others. And if you happen to be in the business of selling something Oprah is passionate about, then you are in for a windfall.
